Are you getting any malfunction codes set in the engine control computer? What is the compression numbers at? Will the spark jump at least a quarter of an inch from the end of the ignition coils?

150 all around,no codes
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Good blue spark
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
150 PSI is a little on the low side this engine should easily do 170 and even 180 PSI is normal. Are you 100% certain that the timing belt is installed correctly when it is at TDC #1 are both your camshaft marks are lined up correctly? What type of code reader are you using to check for codes?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Yes checked 3 times already.cam marks and crankshaft are rite on spot,engine sound when turns with pretty good compression,snap on modis ultra,it's 5 o'clock over here I'll get to you as soon as get to the shop
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
OK a picture of the cam marks at tdc would help. When the key is in the on position is the check engine light illuminated? Can you bring up a live data list on the scan tool?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I did see a picture there,check engine it is illuminated when starting,and yes I can bring some of the data up,now I just started truck up it ran for like 2or 3 secs the shots off removed spark plugs and pretty flooded with gas
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Still no codes?
Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Nope no codes
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Did you double check your crankshaft and camshaft position sensor wires to make sure nothing a pinched? If you checked the injector pulse is the injector pulse on your scan tool indicating about 3.4 ms of injection time? If you put a noid light on one of the injectors and started up for the brief moment that it does run for a few seconds is the injector noid light pulsing or is it staying on steady?

I found the problem it was the computer
