    This just happened to me. I am told it jumped time. If it the primary chain then there could be major problems. If it is secondary chain, then it can be fixed with out too much problem. If you try to crank too much you will file down the plugs, so be careful.

My suggestion to this is to check the basics. Check fuel pressure and check spark during crank. There is no quick answer for a no start condition. You always have to start by checking the basics. An engine with no spark or fuel will not start every time.

It sounds like just a coincidence. I dont know what a GRR noise is supposed to mean. It either Cranks, No Crank, or it Cranks but does not Run. Just tow it to a qualified shop and find out what the problem is.

Simple solutions first, check fuses, if they are ok then the relays need to be checked, if they are ok then deeper issues arise, there could be a number of issues, the nuetral start switch, solonoid on the starter motor or faulty ignition system, this will have to be analized by someone with a code reader, this will determine the fault and he can tell you the cost. Hope this guide will help you, Good luck
