1998 Toyota Camry LE 2.2L Cranks but wont start

Asked by May 19, 2018 at 06:55 PM about the 1998 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Was driving the car on the highway when all the sudden the engine lost
power. Everything in the car was still on and the radio was still going but
pressing on the gas gave me no power. I gradually came to a stock on the
side of the road. I tried to start it but it only cranks. Lights on the dash come
on, RPM dial registers cranking.

Has half a tank of fuel, and oil is good.
Checks performed:

Battery = Good
Starter = Good
Belts = Good
Fuel Pump = Good
Fuel Filter = Good
Spark Plugs = Good
Fuel Relay Fuse = Good
Ignition Coils = Good

Any ideas?

Sounds like timing belt broke.

I'll check on that tommorow, it's 1am here. I'm hoping it's not the timing belt. I'll being giving all systems and hoses a check tommorow before getting into the timing belt. Engine cranks well with normal resistance. I'll try to check for compression as well.
