You mean it will crank but not start ? Do you have normal compression, spark and fuel pressure ?
If the timing belt broke you won't have compression on all cylinders.

SOURCE: 93 Jeep Grand Cherokee Won't start

Are you getting spark from coil wire when cranking? If so, check the cap & rotor. If not, the most common failure is the crank sensor. If you have a 4,0, you can find it on the drivers side of the bellhousing, in line with the flywheel, just where it's annoying to work on. There is a test you can make, but I don't have the specific test values or the correct terminals to check. (you can find that info in any half decent manual.
Good luck

The crankshaft position sensor was seriously problematic in those old jeeps. It's located towards the top of the bell housing slightly to the driver's side I think.

SOURCE: Lack of power when accelerating

You really should have a code check done. There are numerous items that can give you similar symptoms. Two places to look are the fuel filter (usually overlooked till they gum up, and the throttle position sensor (but test it first with an ohmeter. You will need a manual (vehicle specific ones are available at most larger parts stores and most of those stores also do code testing free)

SOURCE: 96 Dodge Ram suddenly had low bat power - hard start - runs poor

Any time the computer loses power it has to go threw a set of things to Learn how to run the car, it must go threw relearning process sometimes they never set all flags because you don't drive in conditions to set a flag, for example if you are in the desert and never drive up a hill like in Colorado then you would never meet that flag requirement, as for the low voltage it seems that the ASD shorts out on these rigs and sets the codes so you have to do a pin out of the computer to see if you have a bad ground a bad asd or asd relay and you would have to charge your battery to full capacity and do a voltage test and a load test on the battery and then see if the alternator is putting out.. Check the battery and charging system first.

1997 pathfinder se 4wd vg-33 motor just changed timing belt waterpump ect and now wont start


Does the engine turn over? If it does and seems to crank faster you may have miss timed the belt. Your okay if just a couple of teeth, if more engine damage will occur.

My nissan pathfinder is 220,000 km, im not sure if they change the timing belt, i went to mechanic and he told me i have to change my timing belt,do i have to change my timing belt now, it works fine now


Nissan suggests the timing belt be replaced every 103,000 miles. If the belt has never been changed I would say you're living on borrowed time. This is an interference engine so if the belt fails you could end up with a seriously damaged engine.

The distributor on my husbands 99 Nissan Quest stopped turning. I'm guessing that it is broken. Is this expensive to replace


most likely timing belt failed.this turns camshafts which in turn rotate distributor.fotunately for you ford insisted nissan make this a non interference engine during their joint venture with mercury villager.so no internal damage should have occurred.im guessing about 700.00 to replace timing belt,water pump and drive belts.

When do you have to change a timing belt


The timing belt should be changed every 60,000 miles cuz when they break they can do alot of damage to the engine. The 2001 Pathfinder might have a chain but it should still be checked at 60,000 miles.

1997 Nissan Pathfinder Timing Belt snapped, how do I know if this has caused engine damage?


You will have to take off the heads and check the valves. Your valves might be bent. But do not try to crank the engine again.

1994 Pathfinder,A/C belt broke;replaced it, but it will not start


A broken A/C belt should not have caused your engine to stall. It is possible that the timing belt failed, I hope not because it will probably need a valve job if it broke under power.
