Re: 8v won't start - I think my timing belt slipped ... (Broke)
This is how I slipped my belt:
I was in rush hour traffic shifting in and out of first for about 30 minutes. I had it in first and without thinking, I let the clutch out. The car stalled and I tried to start it back up, but it didn't start. Once I got it home (got it towed), I diagnosed the problem and found it was my belt.
I blame the slipping of the belt, on the belt. I took the cover offand I saw that the belt was cracked, was missing teeth and had little tension.
Too bad it had to slip ... I was going to put the car up for sale.
