Question about MG Cars & Trucks
Hi I brought a 2001 mg zr 160 , suspected head gasket which I did, can turns over by hand tried to start car with key it turns over but there is no spark, I have changed the ecu and imobliser, I tried to hook up to a diagnostic machine but it wont read the ecu it says cannot connect still no joy, if any can help, I would really apricate it thank you ed
Because you have changed the head gasket I am thinking that there is a valve timing problem. If at any stage you turned the crank when the head was removed and refitted the head and cam shaft
and turned the crank to align the marks then there is a distinct possibility that there is valve damage. Do a compression test. Turning an engine by hand is difficult because each piston will have compression.

SOURCE: obd diagnostic
Look under the hood in the engine compartment.The emissions sticker will tell you if it is obd compliant...If it is manufactured in the u.s. since 1996 , federal laws require it to be obd compliant..I would give the manufacturer of the scanner a call to check compatability...Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: car wont start
these cars go through coil packs regularly as the packs overheat due to their position on the end of the engine. I have 3 lanos and have replaced all coil packs at around 90,000 k's.
Hope this helps.
