Asked by Nov 05, 2014 at 07:22 PM about the 2006 Toyota Sienna LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 06 Toyota sienna that the water pump seized on and broke the timming belt I pulled heads and checked for bent valves there where none. all held water for ever. I put every thing back on and car wont start. I have injector pulse and spark. I have fuel and air. I checked compression its at 120 across all cylders. It wont make a sound or even fire on either. I need help there are no codes and a new crankshaft sensor

Bad timing or maybe you got the spark plug wires backwards


pretty sure it is out of time


I have checked the timing every way even taken the valve covers off and checked the cams for correct timing. every thing lines up perfectly.


Did you check the spark plug wires? And have you tried starting it with starting fluid


yeah I check the plugs there coils on top of plugs wiring to them is correct. have tried starting fluid and still nothing. the plugs are a little dirty but to think they all failed at the same time isn't possible
