Question about Cars & Trucks
Have the starter or solenoid checked. It's possible to get second hand parts from a Salvage/Breakers yard. If you don't mind getting dirty and can use basic hand tool. You may want to invest in a Repair Manual: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/156392336X/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=toyota0d-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=156392336X It can be very useful for a DIY'er .

I had a similiar problem with my 95 maxima. It turned out to be a bad MAF sensor. Check it out and make sure the sensor is not dirty. you can try cleaning it with a MAF sensor spray. I replace my with one from the junkyard.

Hello tim42220: y name is Roger and I will help. If the timing belt does not turn when you crank the engine the belt is bad. The belt has a habit of striping the teeth of a the crankshaft gear. This engine shows to be a non-interference engine. That means if the belt breaks the valves should not bend. This is something you should be able to do if you are mechanically inclined. Main thing is to be sure all timing marks are right. I would strongly recommend replacing the water pump at the same time. The water pump is turned by the timing belt. Should the water pump go bad it will also damage the timing belt. They do make a timing belt kit that includes the belt and all new timing belt idler pulleys. You will need to reload the belt tension-er. This is the worst part as it is hard to reset the plunger. Easier to by a new one but they are not cheap. If you look at the new belt you should see two solid stripe markings and one stripe that is a dotted line.I would also replace the camshaft seals as they are the reason for the oil leaking onto the timing belt. When installed correctly the marks align with the timing marks on the engines cam and crankshaft. Enclosed is a picture of the timing marks.Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate your answer. This way I know it helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
