Thanks for uploading great videos in youtube. I have learnt a lot from you.
Here is my situation:
1996 Toyota Corolla with 210,000 miles, automatic transmission (4A-FE engine). Engine stopped while driving on the road. My dinky OBD2 scanner showed the error code P0340 - Camshaft position sensor...
I opened the engine top cover and saw that the timing belt was cracked and I could slide it with my hand. So the timing belt is probably broken. Now I need to change the timing belt first before I can check for other issues.
I looked up youtube and saw videos on how to change the timing belt on 1996 corolla. However, in my case since the timing belt is already broken/loose (while running), I think the cam and crank position are out of alignment.
Could you please give me some information of how to align the cam and crank in such a case. Or point me to some knowledge base that I could read.
I wouldn't mind junking the car. However, I want to learn about fixing automobiles. That is why I want to try to fix it myself.
Thanking you in advance. Keep making those videos.
Best regards, AS
