I'm also thinking there is crud built up in your engine. Prior to taking it to a mechanic, there's something you can try first. Pick up two cans of Seafoam. The first can, dump into your fuel tank. The second can you are going to have to do some work with. First, this is a two person job. Second, pull the vacuum hose from the brake booster (not from the ...

It was definitely my timing belt, I don't think it has ever been changed. It looked like one tooth wore down and finally gave way. I am actually shocked that it didn't jump prior to breaking. It took me a good 12 hours to complete on the side of the road in a storm. I busted out my deep sea fishing gear and went to town on it. To those who have an ...
