    Sounds as if your timing chain isn't installed properly; cam gear, and crank gear mis-alignment. There is no timing adjustment for your vehicle. If you're not getting it to start with starting fluid, and you have good spark, sounds to me like the cylinders aren't firing at the right time.

My car is getting hot and not showing its over heating found. leak in radiator fix that got a new thermostat now it won't start it sounds and acts like its out of gas when its trying to turn over.it...


You did not say what the make model and year is, so I will give a generic comment.
I would check compression to find out if you may have damaged the head gasket. A shop can do the test and also check the cooling system for other leaks. Problems with the timing chain would not cause the engine to run hot, and running hot would not cause damage to the timing chain unless something happened to the valves.

Van idles fine but when going the the road giving it gas it acts as if it isn't getting the proper gas ... it back fires....repleaced fuel filter and pump, crank and cam sensior


sounds like the timing is off. check the firing order to be sure your plug wires are on the correct positions on the coil packs. if that checks out, possibly a timing chain may need replaced. i hope this helps

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start


Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

Just because it get fuel,but does the fuel injector pulse? Add fuel in the throttle body if it wants to start your problem and solution will resie in bringing the fuel injector to working level
