Q: Engine quit after ticking, then louder ticking.

asked by on

Started making a ticking noise a month ago, but did not affect anything. Then ticking got louder. Quit running after driving for 15 mins last week. Now it is hard to start, it will idle if i don't touch gas, once gas is depressed, chokes. Had P0341 code, replaced cam pos sens, same. Also has P0104 code (MAF?) cleaned MAF with special MAF cleaner, did not replace. Tensioner pulley is shaking too. Help!

My car has 119000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
