I have a rattling sound from belt side of engine. Mechanic too belt off and ran engine. Determined it was actually compressor clutch.
I told him I'll buy part and have him install it when it arrived.
He put the belt back on and left.

Next time the car turned on it has 6 trouble codes and drives like crap.
P0011
P0300
P0301
P0302
P0303
P0304
I think he broke something if the belt area possibly when tightening the alternator, or maybe damaged something running engine without the belt.

Any help would be awesome. The mechanic says he didn't do anything. This car never had any codes ever in the 3 years my daughter had it till immediately after her worked on it.

By the way this is a 2006 Scion xA, but it's exactly the same engine as my 2006 xB

Are you sure you typed those codes right, one of them shows something to do with hybrid lol.

I'm assuming you mean p0300-p0304 which should all be cylinder misfire.

P0011 is camshaft timing

Check the vvt solenoid see if it didn't get plugged all the way back in or wire got messed up. I'll bet that's your other 4 codes for misfire.

Should be down by the alternator just check all plugs and wiring in that area.

I'm not home or I'd look at my other motor and tell you exactly where it is.

If that's all he messed with was drive belts nothing else should of gotten messed with but worth checking

Looks to be it. Could just need replaced also. Might just be a coincidence that happened to go bad at the same time. Try to wiggle it unplug it plug it back in. Reset your ecu see what happens

ok I can see the mounting bolt after removing alt bracket. He never unplugged it, but could have leveraged against it and damaged it maybe.

Very possible. I know I use that area to leverage on to tighten my alternator belt but I watch closely so I don't hit it.

Bottom of it looks like its been rubbed or paint on it from something in the picture you added. I go to the right of that when I tighten my belt

Ok got it. Tightened alt again and reset codes. Hopefully this does it.

Hopefully, if not I'd prime one if you have Amazon and save a good chunk. Autozone and advanced are like 90+ a pop
