Cranks doesnt start
New fuel pump new battery my boyfriend
sprayed starting fluid on what i call the
butterfly it backfired acts like its not getting
gas the guy at advanced auto parts now
tells me the timing needs to be reset.....does
that make sense?
Yes, spraying starting fluid down the throttle body, the motor should have run until it all burnt off or just stayed running. Does sound like a timing issue. Was it messed with for any reason? Timing belt gone bad?
No it ran fine a couple days before but we had the bad storms and all of the sudden it didnt want to start i kept thinking it was the starter but when i took battery in they said the machine read charge required so i just bought a new one the fuel pump might have been ok but from all the reasing it was my first guess
The belts could be bad some of the hoses pretty worn i bought it used with 250000 miles (fingers crossed)
This sounds like a timing or ignition issue. I am leaning toward a timing issue. back firing indicates a timing issue. That many miles on it, if the timing belt hadn't ben changed in the last 80,000 miles, engine timing may have jumped. It is hard to say here. Should have someone look at it.
Thank you sooooi much dont know people around here all the mechanics i know are 2000 miles away just wanted to have a pretty good idea before putting all my $$$$$ into it ya know thanks!
When was the last time you had a tuneup done ? Maybe miss firing spark plugs.
I never have bought the car 3 months ago from a buy here pay here with 250000 miles basically change oil and power steering fluid now this so idk
I thought about spark plus too with reading on them
Spark plugs do not cause all-of-a-sudden your symptoms.
