I officialy hate my life!!!

uhmmm where do i start!... itwo days ago i was driving my lude, having the time of my life when outa nowhere i went over a speed bump and BAMMM she just dies!!! i was like WTF! i looked at my fuel gauge and it was on E....so i managed to push her to a parking spot(with my super muscles:}) and walked to a gas station.Blah blah blah i got 1 gallon on her and still no start... i checked under the hood and i noticed my camshafts were all FU(KED up... they looked like (\) (/)... today i got them straight again and it seems like the car is only running on 2 cyls... i got a CEL(code 9) what do you guys think went wrong?

Are you referring to the camshafts under the valve cover? (being you can't just pop the hood and see the camshafts without removing parts first). Kind of sounds like your timing belt skipped a tooth and is off time, or maybe the distributor moved as well and needs to be advanced more...

Re: I officialy hate my life!!!

^^^^ What he said, I don't think that you're running on two cylinders though, I would freak out if I opened the hood and was missing the valve cover. Is it vibrating to hell? Make sure you open it up, check your timing belt like suggested. Wouldn't it be entirely possible that a motor mount could have gone to hell?
That could give someone the feeling of running on two cylinders as well.

YES... the camshafts under the valve cover... i know need to remove the valve cover to see the cam shafts, but you can clearly see the cam pulleys without removing anything.the reason i think am only running on 2 cyls is cus i unplugged the spark plug wire on cyks 1 and 2 and nothing happened i unplugged cyl 3 and the engine stalled....yes my engine was shaking like crazy!!!i know my engine mount is fu(ked but it was shaking WAYY more than usual!

Re: I officialy hate my life!!!

Sounds like you may have jumped time and bent a few valves. The new miss is probably making your mount problem seem worse. Id do a compression test.

I think to start you should check if the oil pan is still there or at least check it for any cracks or huge dents that might be interfering with the crankshaft, I think if its obd 1, code 9 is the cylinder sensor

if cam-gears were off may be down the crankshaft is off as well, if you got it fix check the oil pan. code 9 on OBD 1 is cylinder sensor
I agree on the compression test

Re: I officialy hate my life!!!

Check the oil pan for sure and pray you didn't smash the crankshaft.
