Re: 4kq timing belt

NO interference.
Iwas in 3rd WOT accelerating 60mph+ about 5000rpm
and the car stopped, i saw the tach jump from 5k+ to 0.
All I could think was sh*t should of done that belt a while ago.
But this one was cracked and old when I inspected it 20000miles prior.
55minutes after getting parts and tools I was on the road again!
