Does it have spark? Check for spark at the coil and the plugs.

I put new head gaskets on my 93 Chevy ck1500 5.7,put it back together the TB is shooting flames,I know the timing is off where do I go from here,wont start


Set cylinder 1 to TDC on compression stroke, remove distributor and reset to stock marks. Generally there are timing marks for this. If you cannot locate the timing marks then note the direction that the rotor under the distributor cap rotates and reinstall it so it's pointing right at the cylinder 1 contact or just barely before when cylinder 1 is at TDC. That may get you close enough to start it. Then you will need a timing light to adjust the timing to the proper spec.

In the future mark the distributor cap and housing position relative to manifold or block prior to removal. Makes re-assembly a breeze.

Car wont start. rplaces head gasket, spark plus distributor cap.


Its possible that your timing is off since you removed the head and distributor cap, and probably the timing belt. The camshaft, crankshaft and distributor need to be aligned exactly right relative to each other for the timing to be correct. The engine will not start if everythings not aligned right.

Are you sure that you set the timing correctly after you reinstalled the cylinder head?

My van had over heated, I let it cool down, started it again, and it would not idle correctly and I had no power. I put new spark plugs in, new wires, new distributor cap and new rotor, still no power to...


When engine cold, remove radiator gasket, fill with water and start the car with the radiator cap off, if the water is blowing out from the radiator, then you have a blown head gasket or bent head. If the water doesn't move inside the radiator if it's still then your head gasket and head are fine. I asume that you didn't move the distributor to change the rotor and cap so there is no chance to left the spark timing a little delayed. Remove the new spark plugs one by one and look for a sign of rust, that could mean that cylinder is getting water from the head. (Only if it didn't pass the radiator test).

Overheat blows white smoke ( steam) from exhust on start up and runs a little ruff on cold start suspect head gasket its a 93 toyota windom 3g it has a 3vz fe


your diagnosis would seem to be correct. when a head gasket goes, coolant can leak into the combustion chamber where the coolant turns to steam and vents to the exhaust.

hi, it sounds like the head gasket has gone take out the spark plugs and check for signs of water also check the oil for signs of water as this to me looks and sounds like the head gasket has failed and will need replacing.

If water is not present then try starting the car with the coolant filler cap off and see if it starts if it does then this is head gasket failure if it still dont start then your going to need to get a compression test done and then this will tell you if the gasket is good or bad but to me it sounds like head gasket failure.

If the gasket needs replacing then you need to also check the water pump is working and also test the thermostat as any of these failing can cause the head gasket to blow again so make sure you get these checked ok.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Valve cover gaskets, now it wont run


You need to get the timing checked, did you mark the position of the distributor before you took it off. If not you might be slightly off with the new distrib.

I put new gaskets in a 1990 5.0 f150. It cranks good but wont start. It has compression, gas and spark. What is wrong/or needs to be checked?


Your timing is off. Did you have the distributor out when you changed gaskets or maybe took the plug wires off?

To change the oil pan gasket in a 93 Tercel


Stock the car doesn't come with an oil pan gasket but you can order one from rockauto.com you don't have to remove the A/C compressor for any of the jobs you listed. If you want to change the timing belt you need to remove the plastic rock guard under the motor on the passenger side. remove the spark plugs and using the socket turn the engine from the crankshaft clockwise until you are at TDC on #1 cyclinder. (compression stroke) Next remove the upper and lower plastic timing belt covers. The idler pulley is the one with the spring. Loosen the nut and remove the spring then you can remove the timing belt. It really isn't that hard to do. Maybe one afternoon.
