run at full speed, yes, can fail
the engine must crank to start, (a/t cars only) and if cant crank it cant start.
so if it cranks,(old post) then next is spark
then try test fuel if spark is good on unstated engine
its not a diesel is it?
Does the engine accelerate okay? Shifting to any other gear help? Check the transmission fliud level, if it is full (and brown or black) you need a rebuild, if it is low add fluid to full mark and try again.
Its not really adjustable. The timing belt is under a plastic cover on the face of the engine(passenger side end of the engine) It has two upper gears for the cams, a tensioner, rollers,and the lower gear for the crank. These are set with the timing marks on these three gears, The tensioner takes up the slack and they cant even be one tooth off. Its not easy to get to this shy of pulling the motor, so if the car is running at all I doubt its timing trouble unless its something to do with cam or crank sensors. If the car isnt running, and sounds funny when you turn it over, like it rolls over to fast or it rolls a few times and then locks up, Your timing belt is probably broke. Hope this helps, Clay
