93 base Dodge Stealth wont start

Asked by May 16, 2013 at 03:28 PM about the 1993 Dodge Stealth 2 Dr STD Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i recently bought a 93 stealth that would start but die if you let off the gas, we checked compression and it was all low so we did a pass on the heads and a valve job and cleaned both of them put them back on and compression is back to normal but the car wont start. it cranks fine but wont start I don't know if there is something with the heads that aren't quite on time, i thought i read something about having to re-do timing marks when you get new heads or something but the spark plugs are working distributor is set, fuel pump is working starter+battery are good, and injectors are also good it just wont start...

Check that plug wires are installed correctly

do you think that perhaps you put the distributor in off one tooth?
