sounds like the timing belt broke. remove the top cover and crank over the motor to verify. belt, water pump, pulleys, belts and tensioner run about 600-700. Roy

did that, and the lifters won't move neither. I guess I have a bad timing belt. Is it hard to replace? or i need to take it to a mechanic, I do not have much time to do it myself.
