correct after doing the head gasket the motor has not fired...ran. I don't have a scan tool,
ive set
Auto Mechanic: Greg, Technician replied 7 months ago
Need a scan tool to check a few things like sensor failure, check connection on the Cam and Crank sensors .
Engine to chassis grounds.
Most like bad connection or faulty
Crank sensor . This I would check first not having a scan tool to check for malfunction codes.
If you have checked and double check timing should be okay. Bad timing will not cut of spark to plugs .
Check this then please get back to me.

Ok Greg my crank sensor connector broke apart so I took the individual stab on connectors and connected them directly on to the mail conn located at the frnt top of the motor...i wouldnt think that because the plastic casing is gone now i5 doesnt work..do you know the color code of the 3 wires from facing the motor left to right..
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I'm not ready for the phone call I'm not at my house so I wouldn't be able to do or verify your assistance I was hoping to get a break down of a trouble shoot that would lead me to the failed part or connection
Auto Mechanic: Greg, Technician replied 7 months ago
When I get back to my shop in a few hrs will check the color’s for you .
