The crank pulley doesn't seem to be turning all the way, it locks up with the timing mark at about 2 o'clock. Any ideas as to why?
Also, the car had run out of oil shortly before this work was started. I thought that the timing belt may have been slipping but it seems that it was the crankshaft being locked up that made the belt slip over it rather than turning it that was the culprit. Is there any check that I can do to determine what is causing the crankshaft to stop turning? I can turn it backwards but forwards it locks with the timing mark on the pulley at the 2 o'clock position.
Any help would be appreciated!!!!!!!
