Hey all so over the weekend i was headed out of town when the engine started stuttering and would not drop a gear to accelerate, i pulled over and checked under the hood and under the car since i had it stuck in the mud the weekend before and had to leave it overnight, but there was nothing in the engine compartment. I did some research and maybe narrowed it down to the timing belt (which was done 60k miles ago) or the distributor. i took the distro cap off and the rotor does not spin by hand, and when i crank the engine it spins at maybe 1-2 rotations per second, unfortunately im not sure if this is bad or good. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. for reference the X is a 2000 6cyl 4wd.
