The brake rotors? They turn with the wheels.

No I'm taking about the timing belt it cut off on me in the middle of traffic and it wouldn't start.

Replace the belt but your engine is an interference engine so you may have bent valves.

the cam shafts aren't moving

what are bent valves

it was the timing belt that was broke

The valves are in the head of the engine. There are intake valves that let in the air and gas that burn to make power. The exhaust valves lets the burned fuel out of the engine. When the timing belt breaks the pistons can hit the open valves which bends them. At his point you may need a full engine rebuild or just a rebuild of the heads in addition to a new timing belt.

Tom the information I can find indicates that the 3.3 is an interference engine. If I am wrong let me know.

your right my dad was saying that it was the timing belt that's was broke

I have a question, How do you set the timing and cams on a 2002 Nissan Xterra and which way do you turn the cams?
