Hi jimgrove12,

Thank you for the donation.

Is your engine 1.5L or 1.8L?

Have you tried to retrieve for trouble codes?

Problem could be due to fault with the Crank or cam shaft position sensor. I would suggest checking those first.

The crankshaft position sensor is located at the crankshaft sprocket so it is more likely to be the cause as the timing belt was replaced and work was done on it.
