If you are sure the chain was installed correctly then you have bent valves, my bet is on the chain install.

How to set timing on a 1985 Mercedes 300d

If the timing chain broke, the timing of the injection pump is likely off also. In order to time that correctly, you need to remove the pump. If you want to tackle that I'll send you more information about setting the basic timing of the pump.

Was driving down road and car started making a funny noise like a belt broke so I pulled over and car cut off and now will not start but dose turn over

If the timing chain broke; your cylinders will not hold pressure because the valves letting air in to your cylinders would be bent. Have the cylinders checked for holding pressure. If your timing chain broke; you will need another engine used or new.

Timing chain

bent push rods could have been caused when the chain broke and not from the chain been replaced wrong or the timing out.

if the engine was running when the chain broke the cam would have stopped leaving all the valves in the same positon as the mometum of the fly wheel continued to turn the pistons in the cylendars could hav come up and hitting the valves and bending the push rods. and or damaging the cylendar head.

recommend removing the head and have it checked for damage, as well as replacing the bent push rods, and cylendar gaskit. once the head is checked and the valves are seated well. then replace and follow instructions in the set up for the pistons and cam prior to replacing the chain and setting the timing.

I hope this was helpful.

1999 chevy 1500 stalled at 70mph turns over and has fuel but no spark

if if the crank sensor has been replaced and still reads bad it could be a timing issue,maybe timing has slipped or maybe timing chain has broke.. remove oil cap and look down into valve pan while someone tries to start it. if rocker arms do not move then this would indicate timing chain or gears are broke.... hope this helps and good luck....please rate this post

Does the engine of a 2001 oldsmobile aurora 4.0 have to be pulled to replace the timing chain

No you do not need to replace pull the engine. Replacing this chain takes many special tools, I would suggest if you can afford it to avoid trying to do this at home, it is a very difficult job even for a professioanl. You will need a factory service manual to get all set up right.

My ford f150 is getting fire and gas but wont start i replaced the module,pickup in the dist.,cap,button,new plugs fuelpump,filter any ideas

check to see it the timing chain broke or jumped,have checked to see if you were getting spark and fuel in the begining.if you had these before then you replaced some things without needing them,unless its been a while since a tune-up was check the timing chain turn the engine over until the timing marks are aligned.the pointer across from the 0 mark on the timing cover.then pull the distributor cap noting were #1 plug terminal is and the rotor should be pointing at that spot.if the timing chain broke it will sound like there is no compression.

Timing chain broke ~ drove car all day and was very sluggish and would not go over 50. Drove it to dealer and parked it, they went out the next morning to start it and it wouldn't start and they said...

There is no way on this earth that you would be able to drive a car with a broken timing chain. The engine would stop immediatly if the chain broke and there would probably be some very expensive collateral damage as well. Any timig chain can be replaced, but it may include replacement of things like tensioners, guides, sprockets, several valves and possibly even pistons - basically a complete engine overhauls.

Turns over but won't fire

well the plastic piece are from the timing chain guides are either broken or ripped off,and the metal rattling was probably the timing chain,,i think the timing chain jmped or broke and broke the guides,if thats the car you most likely bent the valves in the head,,,i would remove the cam cover and the timing chain cover and see what you got,you may need a engine

94 lincoln town car timing chain!

First, the timing chain runs from the crank around the gears on both cylinder heads. There may be 2 chains. What it does is keep the closing and opening of the valves "in time" with the compression and exhaust stroke of the combustion chamber (pistons).
No compression on the entire left side is not good. If right side is okay then you have 2 chains one for each side. Left side chain must be broke or damaged.
To check the compression without using air , someone had to turn the crank over. If this was done with a bad or broke chain you may have bent valve(s) as well meaning cylinder head rebuilding or replacement.
If you plan on keeping the car for a while consider replacing or rebuilding the engine.
