when itry to crank the car

When you accelerate its a lot louder

to see if it is flopping and maybe have the timing chain guide replaced, before there is a breakage and the resulting damage.( maybe timing chain replacement)
Two prior owners so that it is difficult to say what the mileage is although car had not been registered for a period of 9 years.
What do you think? You wanted a question! Any experts around?

And now won't start

belt looks old and worn, some cracking...how much to replace ?

I am trying to start a 1985 celica gts. I replaced the fuel pump. It starts for 5 seconds, then dies. Gas spurts out when I unhook the fuel line at the cold start injector . I took out the injector and cranked the engine, no gas came out. I cleaned the injector. I read the voltage at the CSI and it went up for an instant, then did not go up any more as long as I cranked to engine. Should I have a steady voltage on the cold start injector when cranking? Does the CSI have to work for the engine to start?

I had to pretty much take everything apart just to get to a freeze plug. So after I put her back together the starter got stuck just one thing after another now I'm stuck trying to figure out why she idles once I start it???
