Someone's already tried that. You may want to read about their experiences.

Note that there may be other avenues for resolution prior to your taking
this action. If work was recently done on the timing belt area, then the shop
that performed the work could be held liable though you will need to seek
professional legal counsel to determine if such actions are warranted.
