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
