came from no where
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

This could be quite a few things, it sounds like possibly a camshaft position sensor, oxygen sensor, or jumped timing. You may be able to turn key on-off-on-off-on within 5 seconds and have diagnostic codes be displayed on odometer. Otherwise your going to need a scan tool connected to check codes which most part stores will do for free. Once you get the codes let me know what they are and we can go from there. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.

THE CAR STARTS AND RUNS FINE HOW COULD IT JUMP TIMING ? THE TIMING BELT WOULD BE JUNK
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
It can happen if timing belt is worn or tensioner, but lets try not to jump to any conclusions as it is too early to say anything for sure. Your timing belt is very likely fine. Let me know what codes you pull up, thanks.
