Its the 6 speed manual GT, 2zz-ge engine. Towed to dealer, they found valve compression issues, but want to charge me $450 to take it apart and look deeper. 100000 miles. Always changed oil on time, used synthetic, no other issues.
heard a clanking noise just before it happened. it will not start. if its the timing chain, is there any hope of repair short of replacing the engine? and how much would replacing it cost?
