    I tried the 3 second drill several times and nothing. I cranked over 20 seconds and nothing. Not even did one piston fire. I smelled for gas fumes onder the hood and the tail pipe. No smell of gasoline. I will check for spark. Can not check the computer. Thanks for your help. James

    Yes, 3.8 v-6

  • did you check spark ? there is a magnet on the timing gear that goes bad and you have to take the timing cover off to change it big job you can take out the cam senser and tap the motor over a little at a time and see if the magnet is there it is in the cam gear

  • is that the 3.8 v-6?

    By doing no start diagnostics, check fuel pressure, check for spark, check for diagnostic trouble codes in the computer.

I had an auto mechanic shop look at it and yes, it was the fuel pump. It was replaced and I'm on the road again. Thank you for your help. James

Cold start low ideling

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

I don't know if this is helpful but an engine needs three things to work. Air, fuel, spark.

Car was running then just quit and won't start. 3/4 tank of gas. will turn over rapidly

Really sounds like a broken timing belt. Such a problem "sounds like" you hooked 2 car batteries to the starter at once and it seems to crank twice as fast as normal.
For sure, remove the cap on the valve cover where you add motor oil.
Take a good flashlight and peer intently inside. You will see the top of a valve and the valve spring just to the right of the opening. Have a helper crank the engine.
If it is a broken timing belt, the starter will turn the craknkshaft, but the valve will stay motionless.
