Question about Cars & Trucks
Check and see if timing belt jumped . The belt may be missing a couple of teeth
Posted on Nov 05, 2012
Testimonial: "this is a helpful check to perform. I presume there is a timing mark on the crankshaft pulley that could indicate the distributer rotor should poin to number 1 cylinder, am I correct is this assumption, or is there another way to check the timing? Also,sometimes, when the engine is cold it will start and run fine for a short period of time. The fuel pump runs for about 3 seconds each time the ignition is turned on. I have replaced the distributor cap and rotor. also replaced the main fuel relay and the fuel filter."

You will have to pull the engine and remove the crank shaft and connecting rods you have a bad rod bearing. I will strongly suggest taking to a machine shop and having the crankshaft turned and the rods resized. This will be no minor undertaking and will require time to repair. You could also look into purchasing a rebuilt engine.

White smoke out of the exhaust is one indication that the head gasket is blown. Another is to start the car and check the oil on the dipstick. If it's frothy or looks like a milkshake, this is another indication of a blown head gasket. The milky appearance indicates that coolant is in your engine, caused by a bad head gasket. If none of these symptoms occur, then the problem lies elsewhere. Hope this answers your question and feel free to post back with any other concerns or questions. Thank you.
