Hi, my name is ***** ***** there a antitheft light flashing on the dash, when you try to start it?
Have you had codes pulled from the computer yet?
ok, have you checked for spark at he spark plugs yet, we need to see if its losing spark or fuel?
ok, how many miles do you have on this?
ok, so it sounds like either its flooded, and has washed the oil off the rings, which will make it soin faster because there is no compression, or the timing chain has broke, which is unlikely, resetting the battery will not clear the flood, you must remove the spark plugs and blow the cylinders out and dry off the plugs, one thing you can try is to put the gas pedal to the floor and hold there while cranking, this is the clear flood mode, if it starts, great, if it does not, then you will need to remove the plugs,Tim
let me know if it starts,Tim
ok, can you pull one plug and see if they are again wet?
Ok, then the next step is to check compression, do you have a compression gauge?
we need to see if adding a teaspoon of oil into each cylinder brings the compression up, can you get a gaige, most parts houses like autozone and oriellys will loan you one?
we need to check the compression, and then add a little oil in each cylinde and see if the compression comes up?
