Engine Performance problem
1999 Other Toyota Models 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles
Have a Toyota engine 1G FE. THe Timing belt was recently replaced and the ingine was running fine. Following day a water hose not properlly fitted back broke and the tempurature guage shot up and I turned off the engine. Tried to crank the engine so that I move about 10 meters to a better parking but engine failed to start (was advised this was because there was no water). Hose fixed, added water, now on cranking, the engine was idling rough but after a few seconds it was up and running. Now th problem is that After starting the car and driving for say a KM the engine check light turns on, This could be because of two reasons
1. The Timing belt wasn't fixed right and needs checking however after the timing belt fixing, the light should have come on but it didn't.
2. The spark plugs were fouled when I tried to crank with no water.
Please advise on what the problem could be
have the same problem?
