Oil got super duper low because neighborhood garage didn't tighten the filter enough and I didn't check it out until I was under the car changing the crankshaft position sensor.(per the check engine light diagnostic code. The plastic was broken around the bolt holding the sensor in place.
Could the low oil have caused the camshaft to hit the sensor with enough force to break it?
Do I need a new engine? valve job? timing belt is cracked.
120k miles total on truck. I tested the Ignition Control module in a buddy's t-100 so I know that works perfect.
Do I trust a guy that fixes cars or take it to a real mechanic?
