Question about Cars & Trucks
Heads gasket got rebuild... Then everything was put back to getter with all the correct specs. But car won't start. How would I know if the CPS is bad.
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.

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.

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
