DODGE NEON ENGINE PROBLEM

2005 Dodge Neon • 133,000 miles

Driving on interstate and suddenly check engine light comes on and car loses power. Won't start back up and the brake pedal is stiff. Engine spins over but won't start. Any help would be appreciated.

Did you have the code checked?

Start with a compression test?

I haven't had it checked as it happened an hour ago

Ok, get the checks done so we can continue

Roy

Does this sound like anything to do with timing belt?

Yes, that is what I am trying to confirm

Roy

Being that the car shut off would that bend the valves if the belt popped?

What would cause break pedal being stiff?

Once the engine shut off there is no more engine vacuum so yes.
