Customer Question

Hello I have a 96 GST Eclipse and I just replaced the head due to the timing belt snapping off and it bent the valves in the process. Those were replaced as well, now the car won'[t start. It cranks but won's start. Can you give me some pointers as to what else I may be missing? THanks!

We need to have compression, spark and fuel for the engine to run so lets start by verifying each of those.

Please compression test each cylinder, check for spark while cranking, and check for fuel pressure and fuel pulse from the injectors while cranking.
