are you sure you haven't put the tdc on the bottom instead of the top? Are you hearing the laboring of the compression taxing the startermotor?

basics, air, fuel, spark, timing~

triple check, hopefully this is not an interference situation..will check~ If you've the dual overhead cam, then yes must be correct the first time, easy cheezy with the holes for the pin punches, but if not then belt, think the DOHC has a chain~ so the round things all have marks, look at the guide for stickin' them in the correct orientation..triple check~

Yes I checked the timing and gets fire when it turns over it pops one time but no start

Gregory Boggs

I even replaced the map sensor. It had 3 codes and I replaced all three and it still won't start. Check engine light comes on and blinks 10times but shows no codes.

Not start even if I put starting fluid won't start. Will I get fire if the crank sensor is out. I was told no I wouldn't have spark
