Can you be more specific about how the car runs when it does run? Does it lack power is the exhaust glowing red when it does run ?Is it easy to start or hard and when it runs at an idle does it run smooth or misfire. Is there white smoke coming from the exhaust? is you coolant level ok or is it down does the car overheat when it runs ? The problem is not in the timing belt as this car doesn't have a belt . It runs a timing chain and its quit rare to have an issue with it. You can check by getting a timing light and checking your timing

Hope this helps
