will it start at all?
do you have spark?
battery voltage is pretty love, but more concerned with the cranking amperage then the voltage.
pull a coil, crank the engine and lay it next to a ground (metal engine component) watch for the spark. .
Good possibility at this point the timing is off, no spark would tell us that's likely the case here.
sounds good, let me know
Thanks for the video, but it only sparked 1 time which is not a good indication. It's normal if the timing is off to have an initial spark when you start cranking, but then no spark as it continues to crank. It should be a pretty consistent spark each time the engine turns. Click, click, click with a spark at each crank.
do you have a scan tool? are you getting any codes now?
Did you look at intake timing fluctuations while cranking with your scanner? at this point it's looking like a timing issue.
What do you mean you couldn't turn the crank?You had the chain off when aligning them?
I know your dreading it, but your doing to have to re-check the timing to make sure its right.
Did you use the factory service manual when you did it?
no, i thought you were saying the crank would not turn with the chain off.
If it's off and your having trouble turning the crank or getting it close. just put the chain back on. Turn the crank to set it and then remove the chain ffrom the cams to turn them back to their marks before re-setting the chain.
if the let the cams move when re-installing the chain it will be off a tooth or two guaranteed.
i am having trouble trying to understand what your issue is because turning the cam or crank to set them shouldn't be an issue
