Hello and Welcome to Justanswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question
I would check the crank sensor the belt may have broke the sensor or the connector
also make sur the front crank pully did not slip when the belt broke
this will get you out of time
the crank sensor is on the timing cover nest to the front vibration dampner
I want to make sure that you know the belt that broke was the one that runs the water pump which is on the driver side of the motor. Is that the belt you are referencing to.
the crank sensor is next to the belt on the front dampner
I'll look for the sensor
The sensor or connector has been hit by the belt
causing the no start
here is a pics
Facing the car is the crank sensor on the right or left side of the engine. I looked at the left side where the main belt is and found a sensor but on the side of the engine where the other belt broke I couldn't find a sensor mostly water hoses from the pump. I hope Iam explaining myself well enough to be able to help you analyse the problem.
have you lookes at the pics?
sorry you have a dohc engine thought you had a ohv engine
you are right the belt is at the back of the engine
does the check engine light come on key on engine off
and does the check engine light go out when cranking the engine?
let me know
engine light stays on
does it go out when cranking the engine ?
then the crank sensor is bad
make sure you do not have any codes if you dont then replace the crank sensor
I will check out the crank sensor thank you
also make sure you have no codes a code will also cause the light to stay on in the crank mode
I have no way of checking the codes I'm 10 miles from town and I don't have a code checker myself. I may have to have it hauled into town.
click here for removal procedure
remove the battery for five minutes and retry
when you remove the negitive battery cable for five minutes it will erase the code
click on the blue link for removal procedure
it is a bitch to replace
I'll try that
I though it was just my luck
bummer on that one
Light goes out when cranking after I disconnected the battry
you had a code and the crank sensor is ok
how much fuel pressure do you have?
when checking spark only check one plug if you check for more you will get no spark
need to check the inertia switch in the trunk see if it is tripped
in the trunk on the passenger side is a black box with a button push down on the button
Did you overheat the engine ?
when I check it at the injectors it had good pressure i did not gage it. We checked the spark one at a time. I'll check it . The engine didn't get over heated
may have low compresion if the engine was overheated severly
be right back
need to check the pressure with a gauge for proper pressure for a no start should be around 40lbs
I couldn't find a black box in the trunk
I couldn't find the black box
I couldn't find a black box
Sorry I didn't know i sent the message the first time
ON THE PASSENGER SIDE BEHIND THE BLACK TRUNK COVER ON THE SIDE CLOSE TO THE FILLER CAP

I found the little button but it was depressed aready I tried to push it
down and couldn't
need to check for fuel pressure with a gauge if you have spark
You should have spark if the light goes out when cranking
I'll have to get a gague to do that.
go to a part store and buy one goes on the fuel rail lookes like a tire valve
should have 40psi
If it acts like it wants to start maby the plugs are fouled out
Ok Ill do that tomorrow
try pulling the front plugs and see if there are wet or black
I'll get back with you tomorrow ok
may be fouled out causing the no start
ok have a great night
