Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Nissan Altima 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 250000 miles
Does the timing belt have anything to do with the oil in a car?
I have an 01 Nissan Altima. Oil was leaking from under the car. It started as just a little puddle after the car was started, but didn't leak when the car was off. Then it slowly got worse, more and more was leaking. One day, I drove to work an hour away and when I got out of the car you could see a line of oil from the road all the way to my parking spot and the oil light came on. I have driven it since, but we have tried to crank it few times to move it. Now, when the car is started it makes a terrible noise. Someone said that it could have jumped timing and the noise it the timing belt. Is that possible?
