Question about 2007 Toyota Solara
When you say It wants to turn over for a second or 2, is the engine turning at all? Or, is the engine "spinning over", or "cranking" much faster than it used to. If this is the case, my experience tells me that you probably have a seized water pump, and the timing belt has either sheared off some teeth, or the timing belt has jumped time. If so, you prob just need a belt & a pump. That was the bad news...The good news is: if the belt broke/jumped time, you should have NO internal engine damage. Note: timing belts are a rather involded operation. Figure 3 hrs to take it off & replace it. Please feel free for further info if you want to undertake this job on your own. Hope this has helped.
