My engine quit while I was driving, it lost power, then there was a very loud noise that sounded like there was no oil. It cranks over, but wont start. Had it towed to a local garage, so far all they say is it isnt getting fuel, and there is no pressure in the engine.

    If there is no fuel going to the engine, they need to figure out why that is case and what is is causing no fuel being delivered to the engine.

    I think there is major damage to the engine, the loud noise it made, didnt sound like it was very good. They said the timing belt didnt break, thank god, these Cateras have a habit of destroying the engine when the timing belt breaks.
