Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
If you mean it turns over and does not start, try a whiff of starting fluid. You need to check fuel pressure, but need a Noid tester to check if injectors are opening even with fuel pressure. Crankshaft sensor regulates fuel pressure and timing.

SOURCE: im changing head gasket on
all these suggestions are spot on remove the cover loosen off the 10 mm and pull the cam sprocket back into place.
when the sprocket and chain are fitted again lightly push on the little knob next to the 10mm bolt you backed off just a little presser not to much and then tighten up the bolt.
if you are not shore if the chine has slipped wind the engine over by hand twice before you start it if it is free it should be ok thouse engines are bullet prof you should be ok

SOURCE: TIMING CHAIN BROKEN
yes it is very possilbe that it bent the valves as these cars do that when the timing belt goes. i reccomend taking off the head and taking it to a machine shop to eveluate. it is easier and cheaper as you do not have the proper equipment to do so. also replace water pump and head gasket as well. nothing is wrong with the bottom end of the motor. it is the head

i purchased a new timing chain set and the cam pickup was bad on the new cam gear and we had a no start problem. i took the valve covers back off put the old gear on the cam and it started. BUT be careful if u do that you have to wedge the timing chains apart before you remove that gear so the hyd adjusters do not over expand. 4.7 dodge engines **** BIg they made them trying to save gas but the parts and repair over-ride any gas saving i got.

If you have a dohc quad four type engine, if you did not get the chain alignment absolutely correct, chances are that you have severe engine damage if you cranked it over. Both cam gears must be locked while putting chain on and must be perfect (not close) otherwise the first time you crank it the valves will hit the pistons. (did you get the tensioner on correctly?) Don't attempt to start it, tear it down again.
