I suggest you check the timing belt/valve timing and replace if necessary ad then perform a compression test. A broken belt could mean bent valves.

SOURCE: dead cylinders 2003 sebring

it sounds like you may have the wires on the wrong coil. It should be #1 on the #4 coil, and the #3 wire on the #2 coil. you probably have them backwards so 1 and 3 are firing on the exhaust stroke.
the firing order is 1-3-4-2.
they should be hooked like this.

SOURCE: turns over but wont start

Yes.. connect a fuel pump pressure gauge to the fuel rail - turn the ign key to 'start' and watch the fuel pressure gauge.. if NO pressure.. you found the problem... .could be wiring or the pump itself.

SOURCE: no compression in engine

Hard to believe broken rings on a car only 8 years old?
If rings break, there would be lots of crankcase pressure, blowby, and oil leaks everywhere. I have even seen dipsticks shoot out.
Rings are broken by not letting an engine warm up, before very hard acceleration. And you will never break rings evenly in more than one cylinder at a time. So seems very unlikely.
Finally, if compression really gone, then engine would crank over like a demon. With no resistance, it would spin like crazy.

I think the real problem is the timing belt jumped.
The belt did not totally break, but a backfire or something caused it so jump one or more teeth. This will cause the camshaft to hold the valves open and you have no compression then.
Check the camshaft timing.

Basically what you do is turn the crankshaft to TDC (Top Dead Center) of the timing marks, (usually on the crankshaft pully, but sometime on the flywheel, through a viewport).
Then with the cover off the camshaft shaft should have a visible mark that is supposed to line up with a marker, the plane of the tops of the head, or something. Not hard to do, and you can look up the actual marks in the library.

SOURCE: my 1994 nissan pickup cranks but will not start

Need to check for fuel. Easy way to do this is wipe one of the plugs clean and dry and put back in without wire attched. Crank truck as if you were trying to start it. Pull plug out and check to see if it is wet. Should smell like gasoline. If so, recommend you replace the plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. If not, you have a fuel problem.

You probably have a bad or failing battery. Will it jump start and continue to run OK?

97 dodge neon timing belt broke while going down the road need to know how to get car back in time bought a new timing belt new tensioner and still cannont get car to start junk yard says my car does not...


I do not have good news for you.
According to the Gates Timing Belt guide 2002 Edition, both engines offered in the Dodge Neon are interference engines.
This means that your engine has likely sustained sgnificant valve, cylinder head or even piston damage. Have you tested the compression?
It is probably least expensive to buy a used engine, change its timing belt and replace your engine with that one.

My 1996 dodge neon's crank balancer will not come off. i need to take this off to get the timing belt off. to fix a blown headgagsket.


Take everything in front of it off.  Use a long breaker bar and socket, 1/2" drive, 3/4" if you have one.  Put the socket on the nut and the bar across to a piece of the frame.  BUMP the starter.  DO NOT CRANK IT.  This will break the nut loose.

Car died and will not restart


Have you had your Battery,starter and alternator checked? if starter or alternator bad will drain battery. If battery is bad will damage alternator over period of time. If not changed. Also check your battery cables, make sure your +/- is without corrosion. Possible voltage regulator.Hope this helps..
