Check your sparkplug and wires, make sure that there are no cuts or kinks in the wires, also be sure the plug wires dont cross over eachother. Check the sparkplugs for any builed up of composits or damage.

My 2003 freelander crankshaft mark is set as well the cams but piston is not on top dead center on safe mark on sude mark piston is on top but cant turn it gets stuck

I've worked on freelanders loads of times presuming yours is the petrol model when you set the timing up on these when working on them. all pistons are at the halfway mark in the bores this is so no pistons strike the valves when taking the cylinder head off. So the actual mark if you want it set at tdc you need to take off the crankshaft pulley wheel it won't do any harm just four little bolts if I recall when this crankshaft wheel is out of the way you still have the gear there what the cambelt sits round. It is on that gear where the true mark is to set up the timing with no1 piston at tdc. Infact the pulley wheel needs to come off when changing a cambelt make sure the timing marks are set up properly check twice if nessessary then turn engine over one revolution by hand slowly to make sure no internal parts are hitting and timing marks come back together

Auto brake problem

year make model engine size?

Are you referring to the caliper piston?

If so look at the piston, if it has four symmetrical slots or the caliper has the e-brake attached to it you will need a special tool that turns the piston and pushes it in at the same time. Do not buy the "cube" to try and do this. Get the caliper piston tool

it will look like this4_2_2013_5_46_37_pm.gif

Can not seem to get the calipher to open up on the rear brakes. My husband is trying to replace them and it will not open up- how do u unlock them??

When you say replace,I assume you mean brake pads
Calipers last for years
You have to turn the piston in first,that is later ratcheted up, for parking brake initial setting
Then you need to push the piston into the caliper,works best if you open the bleeder valve
You will be bleeding all four calipers every two years anyway.
You may be able to get a tool for turning the rear piston or modify one as I had to since none were avail for a Lincoln LS
Have the rear rotors turned,don't put new pads on a worn rotor

IF the crankshaft turned ANY after the belt broke, you have bent the valves. The valves only have room to extend when the piston is down in the cylinderhead. IF the piston comes up, and the valve is down still, due to a broken belt that cannot turn the cam to let it back up.... BAM!
