Q: Celica 190 vvtli Not turning over

asked by on

Hi. I hit a pot hole. Next morning car has a knocking which seems to be coming from top of engine. It got louder when idle.also a slight quiet misfire when idle a couple of times. 2 miles up the road the car cuts out and wont restart. There was also a fuelly smell when I got out of car. Ignitions lights come on, radio etc but engine won't catch. Oil is fine also as this is first thing I checked. Any advice appreciated as never had any problems with car until now. Thanks LAINEY
