    considering these questions can help lead to the answer: has timing belt been changed on schedule? does engine rev fine in neutral or does it choke/cough/miss when you try to rev it in neutral? what is the rpm number shown on the dashboard gauge when idling in neutral? is the emergency-brake engaged? will the vehicle roll when in neutral/engine-off/brake-disengaged? be careful if you try that last test, be sure to stand clear and have someone is in driver seat ready to hit e-brake and footbrake!
