Question about 2000 Lincoln Town Car
Had to replace the timing gears, chains, guides, and tensioners. I purchased an "e-auto-repair" manual on line, and tried to follow directions as close asd possible. When all was put back together, the engine will turn over freely enough, with NO sound of pistons hitting valves, or other noises, but engine does not start. No backfire, and only a hint that it might start, but never does. Was told by a local mechanic that the right bank camsprocket does not go together as shown on most diagrams, but is actually 180 degrees different from diagrams. Needing much help. Thanks in advance.....and diagrams would be definitely appreciated.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The tensioner going out at or above 50k is a very common problem. The longer you drive without replacing it, the more you risk being stranded with a dead battery or, even worse, a broken belt. Get it taken care of as soon as possible.

Replace your coil. This happens on these older vehicles a LOT as the oil begins to evaporate out of the ignition coil. My '54 GMC used to LOVE to do this.
