Cam shaft not turning

On a long trip l was driving at 90km perhour and the motor slowed and then pick up speed (slowed by 1or2km perhour). pulled over got out check under the bonet didnt notice anything. got back in and turned the key just had the clicking of starter motor. Tryed to turn motor over by hand and wouldnt move.Towed it home. since its been home l have check it over again and thought that it was siezed but with a turn of the key the motor has turned over however now the cam shaft is not moving. I relized the timing belt is stuffed and will need replacing(which l will be doing). my question is why did the car stop in the first place? why did the motor not turn over? But does now will changing the timing belt fix the problem? do you think there is some thing else l should be looking at?

If you have an interference engine and the timing belt broke at highway speed, the valves likely hit the pistons. This would cause piston cracking, valve stem bending, valve cracking or shearing of the woodruff key in the camshaft's timing gear. The easiest way to check for internal damage like that is with a borescope. Without a borescope, you'd have to do a compression test on each cylinder AFTER you replace the timing belt.

SOURCE: cranks but wont turn over

you know. i took it to a mechanic and actually.... The timing belt cut the Crank Shaft Censor... So it was the crank shaft censor again. The wires were routed wrong from the first mechanic that "fixed" the car.

SOURCE: Car stalled and won't start again

Sounds like it might be either the fuel filter or the fuel pump, cause if you ran the tank down, you probably had sludge in the bottom of the tank that you sucked into the engine, you can try using a fuel system cleaner, you may have sucked sludge into the injectors running it, Zmax sells a fuel system cleaner, or there is one called RUN RIGHT, I would try putting some of that in letting it sit a few min then after it sat a few to soak in and break down the sludge, then start the car up, kick your idle up to around 1500 RPM do not go higher then that cause you will damage the engine, try that and see if that works for you, if not then I is probably the fuel pump or filter.
hope this helps.

SOURCE: check guages light comes on after short drive

It sounds like the Alternator is actually bad.
One great way to determine this:
Recharge the new battery with a trickle charge overnight. Make sure use remove the wires going to the Battery before recharging.
Replace the Battery Wires.
Get the Vehicle Started.
When it has Started: Leave it Running and Disconnect and Remove the Negative side of the Battery. If the Vehicle dies, it is the Alternator that is bad, and needs to be replaced..
The Battery starts that vehicle, and provides nominal power to certain accessories. The Alternator actual Runs the Engine and Recharges the Battery with a low trickled charge.

You have hooked up a manual test gauge to the oil pressure sensor/sender port and verified you have no pressure? Did you prime the oil pump before you starter the engine?

Why does my cherokee turn off while driving.Then i restart it and it runs.ALSO the motor shakes and loses power and turns off.


I would test coil and ignition module. Module has a low speed and a high speed section, so high speed part could be bad and cause unit to die, then start right back up on low speed part.

Would my drive shaft going bad make my aerio shake when I take off?


Hi, well, yes, you can get shake of take off. A drive shaft, however, usually gives problems the higher your speed. Imagine a shaft, out of true.. Slow does little, but faster starts vibrating.

There are many things that can be causing what you are describing. Like universal/constant velocity joints. These manifest at low speed, especially when turning.
Also check your motor mounts and all locating hardware bushings.

1987 toyato pick up 4 cylinder it just died thought it was timming chain. pulled vaule cover everything turns cam and crank, i noticed that the rotor on the distrubetr does not turn. what could that be....


Your distributor shaft is normaly driven by your cam so if your cam is turning the problem is somewhere between the cam and the rotor.

Most probably inside the distributor, the shaft that connects the rotor to the cam is not a sollid shaft, it is split within the distributor in order to accomodate the ignition timing advance function.

It is most probable at this point inside the distributor that the shaft has broken. this will require a new distributor or a recon unit.

Turn the rotor by hand and see if it turns freely whilst holding the shaft, if so you have found your problem, sometimes it turns quite stif but turns none the less.

Engine dies when stopping or turning slow. Intermediate chugging


Try pulling I A C (idle air control) motor & cleaning it good with throttle body cleaner , as well as port it came out of . These quite often get gummed up at pintle of motor (pointed part) and shaft, which cause it to stall etc on corners, under load etc. It maintains proper idle under these conditions. If it cures it only for a while & starts to do the same again, change the IAC motor. They never, or very rarely store a code, so it isn't something that comes to mind very often unless experienced with symptoms.

Abs sensor


there is more than likely a piece of rust stuck to one of the front abs wheel speed sensors. this happens during brake service sometimes.
