Should oil leak out when I take out my distributor?
My friend is stuck living in her car at a Walmart parking lot. Her car died on her. She has checked everything but when she turns her key it makes a revving sound but doesn’t turn over to start the engine. Some people told her a purple mark on her fuel filter means it hasn’t been changed in awhile, could it be bad starter or just bad fuel filter like people say?
More then likely neither. If the starter was bad the engine would not spin over. If the fuel filter was bad the car wouldn’t have made it to Walmart to begin with. More than likely the timing belt has broken or the vehicle is out of fuel.
