I thought it was 180 out but same thing


On some vehicles there is an inertia switch that is triggered when there is an accident or shapr impact. This inertia switch keeps power from going to the fuel pump to avoid a possible fire during an accident, rollover or other incident. It is possible that if your Endeavor has an inertia switch, it may have been tripped. They are easy to reset, but sometimes hard to find. Please refer to the owner's manual for location of inertia switch if so equipped. I will do some googling in the meantime to see if I can find more information for you.

I am not finding an inertia switch, but possibly check the relay. See the link.....,2004,endeav or,3.8l+v6,1421435,electrical- switch+&+relay,fuel+pump+/+circuit+opening+relay,3380


OK I will I have set the timing at least 10 times it's like it don't have any compression

If you had to reset the cam timing due to mud or foreign material on the belt then t is likely that valves are bent as this is an interference engine. Meaning that the valves will collide with the pistons if the cam belt breaks or slips. See the link for more info.....
