    I replaced the timing belt and water pump about 6 months ago and the
    car drove great then yesterday I was on my way to work the emission
    warning light came on for bank 1 then the car died. I got it towed to
    my house then i was checking the timing and found that the belt was shredded at the crankshaft. so I went and bought a new timing belt and
    set the crankshaft at TDC then the camshaft on bank 2, when I went to
    set bank 1 to TDC I found that it was seized. so my question is what
    would cause this.
    Tonight I will be tearing it down by taking off the intake and the
    valve cover to see what i find. any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Perhaps a faulty cam bearing.
