Hi walter, you can edit you other question about the 1989 Chrysler new Yorker. Hard to start & you're on the right path to check that the belt isn't broken.
If you have a similar problem like the YouTube video link, the comment as it may be the fuel pressure regulator /but he got his eventually running...

Those guys also point towards a fuel or battery problem.

You may be better off at a Chrysler car owner forum to start ruling things out on that last link I posted, that's a lot to check over and rule them out one by one...

Overheated while driving.

Your timing belt broke. Normally it won't start after breaking, but it could have jumped a gear and when it did start it ran very poorly. Finally it broke completely. Timing belts are only good for 60-80,000 miles, most never change it till it breaks. Unfortunately many engines are ruined when the timing belt breaks due to no clearance between the valves and pistons. Your car, depending on which engine, is safe. It has clearance built in . While you replace the timing belt, I would reccommend replacing the timing gears too, and if you have high mileage, replace the water pump, because it is behind the belt.

No. The 2.7 is noted for having the timing belt break. It will roll over but not start. Must replace timing belt.

Something is very wrong with the camshaft (lobes worn down?), or the oil galley to the hydraulic lifters is blocked or otherwise has inadequate pressure. I initially considered a broken cam pulley key or slipping belt, but that seems to be ruled out by the distributor rotor turning - it is driven by a gear on the camshaft. It's possible something has slipped out of time - check the timing marks on the crank and cam pulleys, and verify that the key slots on the pulleys are lined up with the key slots on the shafts.

1997hondacivic just shut off when driving now only turns over but does not start

I would unscrew oil fill cap, and spin over to see if rocker arms are moving.There are 2 engines, interference,and non-interference.If rocker arms arent moving the timing belt is broken.I would recommend finding out which style engine it is,hope fully non-interference which means if timing belt breaks,the pistons doesn't bend the valves.I kinda went off the deep end,you should try starting fluid to eliminate fuel problem,and check for spark,but those are some dependable cars and usually only tear up if timing belt breaks.Notice too if engine sounds different than normal when spinning over.

first check the timing belt because it may be broke.Another solution could be a clogged catalytic converter.It really sounds like a timing belt.Remove inspection cover for the timing belt and have someone turn over the motor and see if your camshaft is turning.

Hello, and Welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.

Your mention of "on trying to start the engine turns over very fast" is indicative of a timing belt issue. Either the belt has broken, or the belt has jumped a few teeth. When the belt is out of "time", there is less compression, which results in the engine 'turning over' faster, and a no-start condition.

What you need to do: Replace the timing belt, and, while the belt is being replaced, check the water pump for any evidence of seepage; if so, replace the water pump at the same time.

The good news here is this: Your engine is NOT of the type that will 'bend' the valves when the belt breaks or jumps teeth.

Replacing the timing belt will fix you right up.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

if poor performance was noticed right off the bat, the timing belt is not timed properly. this will cause lack of power, rough idle, pre ignition(little noisey), and rich exhaust.youre going to need to first, find a friend or someone whom you trust to do your automotive work.second youre going to need to start over by tearing it all down systematically and taking note of anything done wrong. third find reliable information on the timing marks for this vehicle. i hope for your sake nothing is broken. let me know how this turns out, ill be happy to help further if you need.
