sense we do have a spark..and fuel pressure....
we need to make sure it is in time,,a quick way to test this is to spray starting fluid into the throttle body just to see if it will fire up
what engine do you have?
will it fire with startuing fluid?
it has spark
not at all?
let me check -
ok..let me know
can we communicate via email?
you may need help
he just turned the flywheel.
let someone turn the engine while you spray a little starting fluid into the thottle body
yes,,i read your post
Ok - will do.

I got word from my step son that was there, that the guy "cook" did spray starter fluid in the intake and did not get it to start. I am confirming if my step son "Justin" was actually there or not & am waiting for confirmation from Cook.
I'm wondering what he could have done by turning the flywheel. Talk to you soon.
Ok - my son Justin said that he was there and sprayed starter in the intake and nothing. It sounded the same as when I was there, which was the engine just turning.
if it didnt start with the starting fluid
and it does have a spark
this tells me,it may have jumped time
there is really nothing at the flywheel that would cause this
the crank sensor is in the side of the block
it should fire on the starting fluid if you have a spark
car ran fine
even if you dont have injector pulse
I will have them do that again
and check back with you
may be just a fluke......just so happen to jump time at this time
yes - that would be a fluke and I'm buying a lotter ticket.
again,,there is no reason for it not to fire for a second on the fluid if it has spark,,other than being out of time
I will check the starter fluid again. Talk to you soon.

What is the ring that works the crankshaft position sensor ?
it is on the crank on this one
but,,isnt the problem if it wont start with starting fluid
and has a spark
I'm happy to give you a good rating. Just need to know if you are aware of this ring this person is mentioning.
do you know where the crank sensor is
it is the ring on the crank
here what I was looking at: 00 isuzu trooper 3ltr just fitted new flywheel in the 6oclock position turned engine before fitting clutch & gearbox & the engine started so i fitted clutch and gearbox and now the engine is turning but wont start! Answer: Would think the ring that works the crankshaft position sensor has got moved or the sensor itself has been disturbed .
that the crank sensor reads off of
This was for a Isuzu Trooper
it is thesame
again..the reluctor is what the cranks sensor reads off of
on the crank
unlikely that would be the problem then.
ok - I give. Thx.
Got spark & got fuel. Not start. Took to mechanic and I will confirm that it sounds like there isn't any compression. Engine kinda spins rather than trying to crank. So, he will check the timing. This is the MOST bizarre run of events I've every heard of.
Happy 2013. I will entertain you and let you know what it was.
After all this, I finally got the information from my step-daughter that she failed to mention. Before parking the car as the clutch was slipping, the car reved up then finally engaged, lurching the car forward. So now I fully understand that the timing probably jumped. The mechanic said that the engine sounds like it's spinning, because there isn't any compression.
Thank you - I wish you the best for 2013.
