Problem solved with special thanks to Daryl from North Carolina. It was indeed a small tooth from the crank gear that was broken. We had looked at the gear when doing the timing belt, and were not happy with its condition, but there wasn't any previous problem... Trouble codes: P1300 (Igniter Curcuit).

Well the customer had just been to a tire store and said that the air quit working immediately there after. When we ran out of options we ordered an a/c relay and found an open spot on the fuse box and plugged it in and it worked. Dont know why it was removed ...

Sorry to say I have been unable to fix the car at this time, mainly due to the customer not returning with the car. I did replae the plug wires, coil ,#1 injector but no change. I will post more later. Thanks for all the help
