1993 Honda Accord died while driving.

Today TMF Auto got dispatched for a stranded motorists on the off ramp of I 355 and 159th in Lockport. First thing TMF Auto did was to hook up a spark plug tester between the spark plug wire and spark plug. Next we disconected the fuel line and installed our fuel psi gauge in to the line. We then removed one spark plug and installed a cylinder head compression gauge into the spark plug location. Next it was time to turn the key.We found the battery was out of charge do to the customer cranking the engine over for a long period of time trying to get it to start. Now we had to hook up jumper cables to charge the battery to get a good 12v down to the starter.Once we cranked the engine over, we saw a good amount of fuel psi, but no light from our spark plug tester or cylinder head compression gauge.
The next thing TMF Auto did was to remove the 3 screws from the distributor cap and place cap to the side. We then cranked the engine again and found the rotor was not moving.The last thing we did was remove the bolts from the top front cover and inspect the timming belt. Once the top of the cover was pulled back we could see that the timming belt had broke do to old age.
Regular scheduled maintenance would have prevented this from distroying his engine. Please check the owners manuel for your scheduled maintenance log or contact us and we will tell you what and when it is do.
It was to much money for the customer to put in such an old car, he had declined any further repairs on it and sent it off to the junk yard.
