will spark plugs fire if timing belt broken?
2001 Neon RT 2.0L - plugs get spark, fuel to injector rail, no leaks, no noises, cranks strong, loud pop after/during cranking. Isn't the cam position sensor responsible for the firing of the plugs? If the timing belt is broken then the cam won't turn and the plugs won't fire? Won't start. Ideas?
It's very possible that the belt is not broken, and could have jumped a tooth or two, also.
cam and crank sensors are both responsible for the coil not getting juice and firing the plugs. Still sounds like it jumped time on you. Have seen this post by you a day or two ago. Check your timing.
If it jumped on you chances are the tensioner isn't working correctly, recommend doing timing belt, timing belt tensioner and waterpump all at the same time.
