Run a compression test. If all cylinders test low or zero, it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim

stop throwing parts at it, sometimes it is better to just pay the diagnostic fee to the dealer then determine whether or not to pay them to install the parts, ask to talk to the tech and have him explain why he suggest replacing the failed part or at least his diagnosis and have him show you test results
