I was driving the car when suddenly the gauge went up to hight and the car shut itself off. Wait a while start it again same scenario. I have it towed but I really wanna know if I have to replace the engine. Thank you.

The engine timing belt is under a front engine cover and not easily viewed. If it breaks the engine will immediately shut down and it can cause far more damage than any of the other belts.http://www.lightdeal.co.uk
