Hello there! I'm Eurocar ! I will try to assist you as much as I can. Quality research = Quality answer!!
is the belt off already or have not started
its off already
the car will not start
doing the belt or the chain under the valve cover?
duh i cannot read
let me get a pic
its belt not chain
ok to make sure there is a chain that times the cams also fyi
never knew that
the above is the cam sprocket and the lower is the balancer pulley there is a XXXXX XXXXXne and line up to the indent of the timing cover
if the belt broke while driving you have a very very good chance that the valves are bent
it is an interference motor
thanks so much
i am ok
the belt did not cut
but the car will not start
does it sound like it has compression ?
it keeps cranking and turning over but will not start
have you pulled the spark plugs and checked if they are wet and see if pressure comes out of the spark plug hole?
while cranking of course
i checked the plugs
the plugs are good
the fuel pump is good too
i would get the plugs out and have someone else crank the engine and using your hand try to feel if there is pressure
there is current to the plugs
i understand earlier that the vehicle was driving untill the engine oil finished
what if there is no pressure?
then dissasembly is needed to see why! may have jumped time
could the finished oil be responsible for it to jump time?
maybe ? it is hard to tell with out myself being there to check it out. possible
my friend said when the oil finished he stopped and put oil, then he stated driving home, on his way he started hearing knocking sound
that is not a good sign at all!!
when he drove 3miles the car stopped
and wouldn't start from then on
very good chance you might be looking in an engine replacement!!
not the news you want to hear !
but only the metals where affected
but since the engine is not hooked it should at least start
or what do u think?
the upper chain on the cams have an adjuster that is oil pressure fed and if there is a loss of oil pressure the timing cannot keep correct time and if driven enough the cams siezes due to the aluminum has no oil and then the engine is no good
by driving 3 miles when knocking is very bad situation and damage to the engine has been comprimised
okay thanks so much for your help
i really learnt from you
hope to meet with you agin
please do me a favor please leave positive feedback for the assistance given
i sure will
have a safe evening
