If the cam seals are leaking to the point where its very noticable, you need to change them soon. If they keep leaking the oil will get on the timing belt and make that slip and jump time. Then...

What is it?.......Its a ground wire. That bracket, I'm pretty sure, bolts to the A/C. I know I've taken it off whenever I did my timing belt. If you cant find where it goes you should at least bolt...

First, I applaud you :thumbup: for getting a car before you get your license. But, find a different car. This guy had the car for only 500 miles, (2 months) and he already wants to dump it on someone...

If the idler is shot its probably wobbling so much that the belt is rubbing on something which is cutting it up. Which, of course, weakened it so it jumped time. Only thing I could think of with your...
