timing belt or chain slipped or broke. pull a spark plug wire, and confirm it has spark. if nospark then possibly bad coil.if still has spark then is probably the timing belt/chain

Yes it does have a timing belt but should be checked for fuel pressure and spark. How many miles are on this engine?

91 eagle talon 2.0 going doun the road quit running,checked coil for spark nothing but i also checked fuel pump an nothing ecsept when u crank the engine shouldnt it pressurise before trying to start?


No spark and no fuel pressure? That sounds like a bad ECU. I would check the ignition coil, and the signal coming from the ECU to the ignition coil. Then I would check the voltage going to the fuel pump. Next, check the timing belt and make sure the correct timing is set.

When you turn your key to the ON position, you should hear your fuel pump pressurize for a few seconds.

2001 PT Cruiser quit running driving down highway


Most likely a cam sensor or a crank sensor. The timing belt didn't break did it? They also have an issue with the timing belt tensioner going bad and jumping a tooth.
