Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I RECENTLY BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE FROM SOMEONE THAT HAD JUST REPLACED THE TIMING BELT , THE CATALYTIC CONVERTERS WERE CLOGGED, I HAVE REMOVED THEM AND PUT ON NEW EXHAUST , AS WELL AS REMOVING THE TIMING BELT AND MAKING SURE THAT IT IS IN TIME, HOWEVER THE PASSENGER SIDE BANK WILL NOT RUN, IT HAS SPARK AND FUEL AND DOESN'T BACKFIRE, IT ONLY RUNS ON 3 CYLINDERS

If you have spark and fuel perhaps compression is missing. Timing belt that is not installed properly or bent valves due to a timing belt breaking could be the cause. If it were mine I would run a compression test to find out.

I CHECKED THE COMPRESSION AND EACH CYLINDER IS TESTING 160 TO 170 PSI,( WHILE CRANKING OVER, NOT RUNNING)
