While driving the water pump locked up(too old) and the timing belt came off and ripped.
I took the car appart, replaced the water pump, the belt and the engine motor mount, unfortunately the book (Chilton) says that you have to get a DRB tool and have the computer re-learn the crankshaft position other wise the timiong will be off and the car will not run, so what the car is doing is misfiring and not starting.
I have tried to get the tool and most auto parts can only offer a OBD tool that gives you the diagnostic but can not reset the computer.
Does anyone know how to set the timing or any tricks on what I can do?
This is frustrating as I did all the hard work so the dealer would not take a bite off my money, but now I am stuck with a dead car.
Any help will be appreaciated, I am in Illinois, (Chicago)
have the same problem?
