Welcome to JustAnswer, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to help get your problem resolved. Ask follow up questions, thanks.
Did you check for spark?
Valve on rail is best place to test if filter isnt clogged.
I would try again with starter fluid and if it doesnt even fire do a compression test. If compression is low check timing marks.
So only the number two cylinder had any compression, and it only had 40psi
I think your timing belt jumped........Remove timing belt cover and check to see if marks line up. Then replace belt and tensioner.
The intake and exhaust valves should be closed at the same time, correct? this should be the compression stroke. Is my assumption correct?
One of the camshafts was 180 degrees out of alignment. It is fixed and it at least started.
okay, we got it running, but the timing is a little off. We couldn't find the hole for the crankshaft alignment pin, so all data said to get it just before TDC. Well, we did that but I think the timing is just a little off and the computer is trying to correct. Its just far enough out where it cant quite compensate. My big question is: Where in the heck is the screw that come out for the alignment pin? the close up in the Haynes Manual and the images on AllData are just not clear. It almost looks like it should be on the same horizontal line as the crank. any ideas?
