As I was coming to a stop, I reached for the gear shift to put it in park but didnt actually have my hand on it, My engine just died. I put it in park and tried to start it again but to no avail. We ended up towing it home and there it sits. If it is the timing belt, did I just fry my engine when it died? I dont know if this car has a zero tolerance engine or not.
I need to know this before I put any money into it.
Thank you.
