thanks for your replies i was very upset when i started this now for the rest of the story (lol) the mileage on the car is at 105+k miles. the car was running after the accident because the mecahnic stated that's strange when we went out to drive it home from the repair. at this time it was told to us that we drove it into the alignment area, etc.., My hubby is like the rest of you probably are-the camaro is his baby and she gets her tune-ups and all done like clockwork, the last time tuned was less than 2,000 miles ago and different mechanic gave the car a clean bill of health at that time. there were no odd noises coming from the car prior to the mechanic taking possession of it, the tow truck driver can verify this. not to repeat myself it's just so strange, the way the mechanic explained it to me is he had to pull the pulley to the crank out to repair the harmonic balance sensor, then the code came back after repair that the balancer is still showing bad code and then the computer story, then now yesterday he stated that they had to call the chevrolet experts to get a list of other possible causes and he said they told him to take a pry-bar to the back of (i think he said the pulley)??? and if it moves it's bad, so he said it moved almost a quarter of an inch so that needs to be replaced. as for the insurance company they seem to be getting fed up with the chevrolet dealership mechanic involved-at last call last night i was told we have not received any information on this and have called three times to request fax, please try to relax and due to the fact that they have waited until they close on a friday there is nothing to be done until monday. the insurance seems to be trying to get this resolved but i'm hope you understand i am sitting here going how convenient for all this work being needed as it's in their posession. hope that explains it better to all of you. thanks again.
