The battery is new. There is nothing wrong with it. I repeat I was driving and came to a stop and engine died. It will not turn over. only sound is coming from the starter's solenoid. what would cause the engine to shutdown
Expert:  mike2765 replied 1 year ago.
OK. YOU BROKE THE TIMING BELT. THE NOISE YOUR HEARING IS THE ENGINE CRANKING OVER WITH NO COMPRESSION. THATS WHY I ASKED IF IT WAS ONLY MAKING A WHINE NOISE WHEN CRANKING. YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO REMOVE THE CYLINDER HEAD BECAUSE THIS AN INTERFERENCE ENGINE. SO THE VALVES WERE HIT BY THE PISTONS. WHICH BENDS THE VALVES.
