Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

Hello my name is*****'ll do my best to help. When you say "hits" do you mean cranks ? How many ignition keys do you have and is there a theft light flashing on the dash ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we have two keys I have put new crank bearings rings valves and a ecm programed to my vin number and ran the relearn for it turn of the security lock
Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

Ok so does the security light flash when cranking ?does the engine start with starting fluid ?

Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

And have you tried the old ECM if you still have it ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
dose not start with starting fluid and the lite dose not flash when cranking
Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

Ok , well you have a lot of variables that can be going on. Does it backfire or any signs of fire with the starting fluid ? Did you double check compression and all sensors plugged in ? Do you have a code scanner ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no but it showed more than 5 v at the sensors
Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

Ok lol. Please answer all my questions I have asked a few and your one word reply doesn't help either of us

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have a scanner no codes it dose not backfire and I have put in all new rings pistons and valves
Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

Ok thank you :)

Ok have you verified timing again ? Does your scan tool read live data ?

Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

First thing is to double check the cam and crank sensor to make sure they are plugged in.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it starts when pluged in and says it conects and then says no codes
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

Ok , first thing I would suggest is a compression check just to make sure all is ok mechanically

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.
