A dead battery is usually the 1st thing to check. It also might be your starter.

Can you put a socket and ratchet or breaker bar on the damper bolt,, Can you turn the engine over at all?? that is the big bolt on the pulley where the crank is. If you cannot budge the engine, then it is seized up more than likely and the bearings have melted to the crank.

Check the cam/crank sensors. Also, if the car happens to have a distributor, make sure it is not 180 degrees off. If this does not help, then do a compression check. Remember, and engine only needs three things to run. Fuel, Spark, and Compression. (in order of course.) The firing order for your engine is 1,4,3,2.

SOURCE: blown head gasket. will rebuilt .uch pressure on pistons and rings, causing failure

The conventional wisdom is that this is a possibility with high mileage engines. But the option of just rebuilding the head versus the entire engine would make the choice easy for me -- I'd rebuild the head... I would say the probability that a new head would damage the engine is kinda low.

SOURCE: how to put a 98 cadillac deville in time

Take a finger and place it over the #1 cylinder plughole, after the heads are back on of course, and have some one else turn the key in very quick spurts util you feel the commpression of "that" cylinder against your finger. Do this very slowly and once you feel the pressure you shoul also be able to see the timing mark on the crankshaft very near the timing mark TDC top dead center coming into alignment.At this point just turn the crankshaft mounting bolt with a 1/2 inch drive ratchet wrench and the appropriate socket until it is on TDC. Then insert your distributor which will turn clockwise. So you have to account for this movement until the rotor points directly at the number 1 cylinder plug wire insert. It is usually marked on the distributor cap on a GM product. Make a small indicator on the ridge of the distributor housing to match the mark.Using a large black marker works well. That's about it. Thanks, Dana

Replaced head gaskets on 91 legend and car won't turn over and the battery and check engine light stay on with key off hooked everything up right and torqued back to manufactured specs don't know what...

Are you sure you got the timing correct with both heads and the crank shaft, when you installed the timing belt? If wrong, this can cause a no crank/no start situation. As far as the battery and check engine light staying on when key is off, sounds like ignition switch is malfunctioning, or computer. Why did you replace the head gaskets?

96 ford windstar when i put water in the radiator it comes directly out the oil pan plug i just replaced the head gaskets the heads are sitting flush and are torqued to specs

My statement would be, either one of the head gaskets is not on correctly, or you have a large crack in one of the heads, or the block.
Did you have the heads checked for cracks when you had them off the engine ? Was either gasket blown ?
There has to be a gap between a water jacket and an oil jacket for the coolant to enter the crankcase.

Do i need to have my 2004 dodge intrepid anti theft code reset through a dealership if the heads and head gaskets were replaced? the entire top of the engine ws taken apart adn put abcl together.

i would disconnect the battery. removing both the positive and negative battery terminals. with both ends disconnected, hold the two terminals together for about 10 seconds. this will proform a hard reset on most chrysler vehicles. also, if this doesnt work, try turning the key to the on position, and then proforming the hard reset procedure.

After doing a head gasket repair 2001 Chrysler Sebring 2.7 v6 won't start. It makes a noise like growling but does not turn over. My mechanic is saying we may need to rebuild bottom half but makes no...

You say that it does not turn over, how would you know there's no compression if it don't turn over, unless you mean if won't start up, lets go with it won't start up, if you have no compression, did you bleed down the lifter's, if you did not, with the lifter pump up will hold the valves open and you will not have compression, will be very hard to start engine, remove lifter and bleed them down, also make sure you replace the oil just in case there's water in the oil pan when heads were removed, if there is water could lock engne, now you would need to overhaul lower engine, hope this was very helpful.

when you get coolant coming out of the cylinders when you have removed the plugs and turned the motor over by hand then you have a head gasket leak or cracked cylinder heads or possibly a cracked engine block.the only fix is to either rebuild the engine if there is nothing seriously damaged like a block or heads or find a good used motor from the wreckers and have it put in.

I just had my car head cut and resurfaced the car worked good for a week now head is leaking again it a 2002 dodge stratus dual cam 4 cylinder what's the torque on it I gave it 50 pounds torque what if...

Bad news, you have to take it all apart again, and replace the head gasket, you can't just retork the heads after running the engine, now there is damage to the head gasket, you need to get a manual and tork the heads to correctly, tork specs, and sequence
