Your car will crank but not start

You will check everything and have battery power, fuel etc but it will not state

That means your timing chain or belt has jumped or broken

Your car will NOT idle if you have a bad or broken timing belt/chain it will not even run.

Personally the timing chain and belt go hand in hand. You will know!! I recommend them be replaced together at the same time - others may differ with me. You'll know - the car will not run... it will idle. You should get this done before that happens. A trusted mechanic and the mileage of your car will be able to tell you right away. I say that...........well a trusted mechanic can! For me....it's protocal with "certain cars" and mileage...it comes recommended. Have it checked out by someone (mechanic) you know and trust.
