Are you getting the engine to turn over, or do you just turn the key and nothing happens?

We have skim the head and pressure tested the head as well.


Okay, it's either a spark or fuel issue. Have you checked for spark while cranking over the engine yet? Have you tested you injectors to see if they are pumping? Spray some starting fluid into the throttle body and crank it over. See if it will run for a couple of seconds. Also try unplugging your MAF and see if it will crank over and start for a couple of seconds if you can determine if it's actually pumping fuel.

recheck timing i also did cam belt on my one but when i tighten the crank nut it jumped did not want to start due to nock sensor not lining correct after i figured it out it started first time
