Hello, I'd be happy to help! First, do you have access to a scan tool to check for any codes? Do you have any other diagnostic tools that we could use to eliminate some possible issues?

my friend sprayed some starter fluid into manifold , still didn't start like engine had no spark
Expert:  Roger replied 1 year ago.

Ok in that case all I can do is give you common failures for these based off the symptoms, but without codes it's not a guarantee these will work because they're just common issues, not all possible issues. The most common that causes this is the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors, they both fail equally often, and either could give you a crank no start condition. Timing problems are slightly less common than that, but enough to acknowledge that it's not rare. Without a scan tool however, it's difficult to say and in your case to accurately diagnose it you would need one that shows live data, so we could see actual values for the cam and crank sensors. I would start there though if no diagnostic equipment is available, replace those sensors and go from there. If you have any more questions let me know. Please don't forget to rate, they won't compensate me unless I've been rated. Thank you!
