    4 weeks ago my belt tensioner failed. I put it the garage and had a new tensioner, crank shaft pully and fan belt replaced. While the mechanic was on I got him to change the timing belt and service it too. When I got it back it had a really rough idle, engine shaking alot. However it drove...

    I have a 1999 9-3 convertible with 112k miles. Just recently while I was driving, all of a sudden the speedometer stopped working and the "red triangle" light, "Brake" light and "ABS" light all came on. (Just like when you turn your key to On without turning over the engine). The picture is...
