So yesterday I got a good fresh oil change, today down the road, right after I leave the driveway the cruise light starts flashing and the engine light comes on. I bring it to autozone crossing my fingers for an o2 sensor when he reads out "Camshaft timing positioning sensor, timing belt, cam timing is off" or something along those lines.
I am $1300 behind on my car meaning I have to take out most of my paycheck every week just to get caught up by February, and now I have this?!

Can I just get the timing belt done or is this something more serious? I have to drive to work every day, what are the odds the engine will snap on me? It's not running differently. I'm at 102,229 miles. Just the night before my mechanic said not to worry about the timing belt and just focus on not getting the car taken now what do I do? I still have to drive it to work
