I was driving the car at 75 miles/hour in the hwy. In five gear and the car sounds like it was in neutro, I bear to my rigth and turn off, I try to star it again but didn't, I open a plastic cover, I guess is the timing belt cover, I try to start it but the belt inside the plastic cover is not moving, tell me what should I do?
Thanks

G'Day there,

The timing belt will have to be replaced & the valve timing re set, I am not sure which engine is fitted as we don't have that model in Aust, but it will be a fair bet that some of the engine valves are bent. You will have to do a compression test and if there is no or very low compression in any cylinder the head will have to be replaced and major repaire will be required.
