Postby MonteLDS on Mon Sep 20, 2004 8:08 pm

yep folks it is that time again, my car is having issues. my car just stopped on the freeway. It would try to turn over but wouldn't. I have a full tank of gas in it. i got oil and all. So it is a bummer. :(
My car guy won't be able to look at it till the morning. so i am hoping!

Your charging systen is probably broke and the battery has died. Charge up or jump the battery and see if it starts and runs, then see if it's charging the battery.
It might also be as simple as the battery cable ends are dirty and need to be cleaned so it isn't making contact and getting good voltage.

If it's the timing belt your only hope is that it's a non interference engine, if it's not the pistons hit the valves when the belt breaks and your engine has very serious damage and may be toast. :( Most Toyotas are non interference, most Hondas are.
