Question about 1986 Plymouth Reliant 4 Door
I have everything lined up, based on what I read from another posting, and the car still isn't wanting to run (so I can run it for 30 seconds, then I am supposed to check to see if anything moved...) What could I have missed?
What are you trying to do exactly?
when doing timing belts your not supposed to run the engine to see if anything moves. you rotate the engine over 2 full revolutions and recheck timing marks. depending on the car you have to rotate with tension loose or somewhat tight then loosen and retighted once crankshaft has been rotated 2 full times. remember some engines can be destroyed by a timing belt breaking and installed incorrectly. I have books here so list your car with proper engine. note SOHC,DOHC

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
