Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).
Did the timing belt break? Are you 100% that it is "in time" correctly? Does it spin over effortlessly? If so,do a compression check,and make sure you dont have any bent/broken valves,or blown head gasket.
if it doesn't smoke then it is throwing the oil out somewhere, probably down at the back of engine at valve cover gasket....he might have screwed up the gasket or tried to re-use th old cork one. but.....check the oil dipstick tube to make sure it is seated properly and not giving you a proper reading....hope this helps
safely raise & support vehicle, lock down flywheel, remove wheel, get a really big breaker bar 1/2 inch drive. a long extension . the apropriate 6-point socket & a jack for all these tools. assemble the socket/extension/breaker bar, set onto the bolt on the crankshaft, support the extension close to the head of the breaker bar with the extra jack stand & use this extra leverage to break the bolt loose by pushing down towards the ground on the breaker bar using the jack stand as a fulcrum. You MUST lock down the flywheel with the right tools for this operation to work. Do disable all electrical before you start this operation to avoid injury from accidental starting of the vehicle.
