Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Toyota Matrix 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 57,500 miles
2004 Toyota Matrix w/57,500 miles. Car just had major service by dealer 2 mo. ago. All of a sudden, engine would not turn over immediately, as usual, when starting one night (no prior symptoms). Thought it was the battery going dead. When I got home, 1mile later, I opened the hood and found a cable from what appears to be a pulley assembly (steel cable wrapped around a metal drum) hanging over the top of the engine. A nut is missing from the front of the pulley drum, and there is red fluid or grease all over one side of the engine compartment. Any idea what this is and what may have happened? Images have been uploaded.
have the same problem?
