Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. Does the engine crank over and not start or does it not even crank over at all?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It cranks over
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for that information. Have you checked for spark and or fuel when cranking it over? Are there any codes in the computer? Does the engine run on starting fluid?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It has fuel no codes a mechanic looked at it said there is no injector pulse but couldn't figure out why after the ecm cam and crank sensor where changed he pretty much walked away and had it towed back to my house. He said he didn't understand why after all that it still won't start
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 1 year ago.
I can figure it out. Would you be willing to talk on the phone? I get off work at 7 o'clock tonight and can talk then.
