      You're saying the harmonic balancer key broke? Seems the case seeing how your vehicle runs a v-belt system (as opposed to serpentine belt system). Hopefully the keyway on the crankshaft is not shredded....but this repair would require timing belt removal, as well as crankshaft gear removal. The labor time for this would be similar to what you'd pay for a timing belt replacement, plus or minus some. AllData quotes about 2.1 hours, however every shop may charge differently based on rates and what they feel is appropriate for this repair. I'd estimate you will end up spending around 300-500 for this repair IF the crankshaft keyway is still good. If not, you're looking close to 11 hours for crankshaft replacement.....may as well drop in another engine or get another car if that is the situation.

      Synthetic oil is a lubricant consisting of chemical compounds that are artificially made (synthesized). Synthetic lubricants can be manufactured using chemically modified petroleum components rather than whole crude oil, but can also be synthesized from other raw materials. Synthetic oil is used as a substitute for lubricant refined from petroleum when operating in extremes of temperature, because, in general, it provides superior mechanical and chemical properties to those found in traditional mineral oils.

      Note: both my cars have 150,000 miles and I use the synthetic oil for a better performance.

      Did you check oil level. Also, check correct oil pressure. Could be a problem with oil pump? Could be other issues? I wouldn't drive it till you check for proper oil pressure.

      cranking for 30 seconds max with a 2 min rest in between is recommended any more will over heat and possibly melt a connection in a starter. the battery could have just ran low also the tear in the intake is pretty important to fix especially if you don't live in a city. sucking in dirt is horrible on an engine. i would start by replacing hose and charging the battery.

      You may have run the battery with all the cranking? Make sure battery has a full charge, battery connections all clean and tight. Then check voltage and ground for the starter motor. Any testing make sure the tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set.

      Some of the national brand auto stores will test the starter for you if you take the starter off and take it to them.

      Local auto parts stores will test your vehicle charging system with their electrical analyzer for free and it will detect accurately the problem involved .
