Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you
Is your check engine light on?
Did it shut-off, or just would not start one day?
it just shut while driving no engine lite
Ok, when you try and start it...Does it sound different than it usually does when you start it?
Just off, im thinking timing belt...But I need to verify that... Do you have a 8mm wrench?
And does it sound like it always has when you try and start it?
Ok, can you look at the black plastic timing belt cover and pry it back a little to see if belt turns?
yes sounds the same
ok how much does it coast to have repaired
If it is the timing belt.. At a dealership it ill run 850.00 for parts and labor
But a Independant shop will be less
And thats a new belt and waterpump
if it is the timing belt thats bad will it not turn when the engine is being turned over
Correct, if timing belt is broke...It will not turn when you start engine... If you had a 8mm to remove the Cam sensor on the side of head Drivers side.. You can look and see if cam is moving.. If you start it and cam stays still... Belt is 100% broke
ok i can buy an 8mm where at on the head driver side will i find the cam sensor located
There is a pic... Its a square sensor
Kind of hard to get to..... But you may can pry back the plastic shield around timing belt to inspect it
thx for your help
