He may have knocked an vaccum line loose somewhere so i would say to take a listen under the hood for a sucking sound like if someone was sucking on a straw.

Husband car slowed down on highway. Wont let him go 60 he has to pull over and park car what's wrong with it? He just had timing belt changed and oil leak sealed.


The first thing I would have checked is the cylinder compression. When things just "happen" it is often related to the most recent maintenance performed. By doing a compression check, if the cylinder compression is low, that would indicate that the timing belt slipped or jumped time, indicating something was installed, adjusted, or tightened correctly. If the compression is good and even on all cylinders, then you need to look for other possible problems.

Could be a locked up oil pump if you're fortunate. It sounds though like you've broken or seized a bearing or several.

Which grade motor oil to use?


Did your husband's friend say anything about synthetic oil? In my opinion i would never use that light of oil(5-w30) in anything its just to thin, to me its like putting water in the crankcase. The only reason the manufacture recamends it is because of gas milage the thinner the oil the less resistence the engine has to turn over hense better fuel milage. If it were me i would do some resurch on synthetic oil.
