Main Issue was Timing Belt.

I changed the timing belt, water pump, and I follow the instructions on to how look for the marks on the crankshaft and camshaft.

After I did that, car or engine started right away. Everything it seems OK. There was a little situation. When I cranked it smoke came out the side I worked on the car, right side.

So after the smoke vanished I continue cranking the engine and it went well.

Car was parked almost four months without moving and with half of tank with gas. Temp outside was 89 degrees to 90
degrees.

Now, car cranks ok but engines after 15 minutes driving dies and I started to crank it every time the engine dies, I am concern for the starter,


Any advice. Please.
