Pontiac Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.
I will do my best to assist you.
what engine do you have?
how many miles is on it?
tell me how and when this problem first began
are you there?
i understand,,but when did this problem first begin,,,what did it do?
tell me,will it fire up with starting fluid or a little fuel into the throttle body?
it never fires at all?
but the engine doesnt fire up at all with the prime?[starting fluid or a little fuel into the throttle body]
does it have a fuel injector pulse?
ok..have you checked the compression?
the fact is,,there is no reason for it not to fire up for a second with a prime if it has a spark and is in time
so,,if it does have a sprark,,i would think the timing is off on the chain
it should fire with the prime if it was in time and has compression,reguadless of what else may be wrong
so,i would think it jumped on the chain
that is correct
sometimes the chian may stretch and jump a notch..it doesnt have a belt
you are very welcome
