Hi Scotty I have a big problem I was driving my 2000 nissan x terra and I suddenly heard a rattling , I tried to get off the next exit i heard a bang the engine was losing power fast then it died so i got a tow to my house and now the engine shakes something fierce but it has no check engine light I was wondering if it could be the catalytic converter thanks for all you do I have fixed a few problems with your video help.

Hi scotty,

How are ya?
Love your work! Keep up the great work!
I have 2002 toyota duet M100- daihatsu storia-sirion-boon. All the same cars, which is the proper recommend oil to be used in the cars engine and what is the right coolant to be used. Also if you have a users manual on you and if you could share it, that would be out of this work.

Thank you in advance

I would also change the in line fuel filter also just Incase it’s dirty and restricting the flow of fuel

First thing I would check is the fuel pressure to me it sounds like low pressure due to pump or regulator
I believe if timing belt skipped that it wouldn’t start properly
I could be wrong so someone correct me if I am wrong
