    When I go to the mechanic and ask for a timing belt replacement, is it a good idea to get the water pump replaced too? And is the mechanic responsible for replacing any tensioners/pullies that may be bad?

    Hey Guy's, I just had a few questions... My Subaru has been down for a while and Im not sure whats wrong with her. Im thinkin it may be the timing belt. If the Timing belt has slipped would it retard the timing? or would it advance the timing? Any help would be great!
