Question about Cars & Trucks
We replaced bad timing belt and balance belt. Then re-timed. Car will crank with key but won't start, but if you put a ratchet on the crank, it will crank only about a 1/4 of a turn and stop...will crank fine with key, but not with ratchet turning crank. Has spark and fuel. Put plug wire in plug hole, when cranked with key, wire blew out of hole. So there was compression. We have tried everything we can think of but car will not hit. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We have been trying for over a week to get this thing going. I just bought this car 3 weeks ago to drive to school, I am full time student and really need to get this thing going.

Tune ups are always a good place to start , including air, fuel, plugs and for the extra 5 bucks a PCV valve. If these havn't been done in the last year at least might want to start there. If that doesnt make any difference please post again and we will look at something else!

SOURCE: 50 percent compression on piston
Squart some oil into that cylinder through the sparkplug hole and test again. If the compression is now a lot better your rings are bad or broken, If it does not improve then you have a bad or burned valve.

did you use aftermarket crank sensor? if so that might be your problem. dealer has several different ones, by providing vin number, but there is only one after market for all optimas 01-05. try to connect thick pink wire and thick orange wire together on the ignition failure sensor. you might have the same problem as me. good luck.

If it has a distributor it is possible that the reluctor / stator has a broken wire. preventing the computer from firing the engine. This can be intermitant and would require the removal of the distributor. If the engine has a crank shaft sensor then this may be a possible place for a broken wire or bad connection. Location for these can be on the harmonic damper at the from=nt of the engine or located at or near the flywheel......

Your driving a '94 laser... thats definately a large portion of your problem. I would take it to a salvage yard, part it out, or sell it for scrap. Then take that money, invest in a huffy bicycle and the only problems you should ever encounter is the tires going flat or the seat being a pain in your rear parts.
