Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
Dome light was left on. battery was dead. jumped it off. engine quit while turning into a driveway. tried to restart but wouldn't. removed head and found two bent valves. took to machine shop and had fixed. put everything back together and car will start and idle, but put it in gear or touch the gas pedal and it'll die. any solutions?
1. Had mechanic check timing again. Belt off a couple degrees. Should fix problem.
2. Don't know. this is my son-in-laws car.
4. I think valves were bent due to timing belt breaking and son-in-law trying to start car when it went dead.
5. Will do this if timing belt reset don't work.
Thanks for your reply.
