Hello, my name is***** you done any testing such as check for spark or fuel? Thanks.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No
Expert:  Dan replied 4 months ago.

Do you have turbo or non turbo engine? I doubt problem is crank sensor. Considering it just shut down like that I'm thinking timing belt has jumped or fuel pump is bad.

No turbo

Expert:  Dan replied 4 months ago.

Start by seeing if it runs when spraying starting fluid in to engine, if not pull a spark plug and check for good spark. If it doesn't start with starting fluid but has good spark then next step is compression because you probably have a jumped timing belt. Once you get tests done it should narrow down possible problems and I can give you replacement instructions as needed. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.

Where is the timing belt at
Expert:  Dan replied 4 months ago.

It is behind the timing cover, it is about a 4 hour job to replace. I'll give you replacement instructions if we end up determining that as the problem. Let me know how testing goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
