How did you manage to rebuild an engine without removing the cam and crankshaft? After doing that, proper cam phasing is essential! Get a manual such as chltons or haynes and follow cam setup instructions, distributor install etc.
Problem starting may be due to improper setup or a mistake or previous problem that existed before you did whatever you did to the engine, so go over everything carefully.
I'm not there, but I'd give the same advise to anyone if I wasn't able to look at it myself!

If the tensioner is for the cam timing belt then it certainly WAS touched. You can't install a new belt without releasing the tensioner.
Maybe you can back off a bit and see if they won't share the cost of maybe finding a used replacement engine from a salvage yard - you pay 25% and they cover 75% or some other arrangement. A used engine is going to be cheaper than rebuilding your damage engine.

After all, you didn't wrench on the engine, they did.

timing belt replacement is dependant on mileage usually around 100000 km. A timing belt can break without warning and the result is an expensive engine rebuild. If in doubt replace it depending on mileage

The Timing belt broke on my 1995 mercury mystique I was looking for a manuel to fix it. thank you


This can be a big problem if it is a Non Interferrance Motor, meaning that when your timing belt broke you engine basically free wheeled during slow down. This can bend the intake and exhaust valves, extended cranking on motor trying to get it to start after the belt breaks can also cause this. You can get a Chiltons manual to have a guide in replacing the timing belt, i can say i know the motor in your car is a dual over head cam engine. These can be a little more difficult to do if you have never replaced a timing belt. May be best to take it to a professional that can test the head and make sure that no valves are bent before you pay for the belt and timing tensioner.

1996 olds cieria 3100 engine has had three engine failures\r\nanti-freeze in oil replaced first engine second time engine was rebuilt


Sounds like the head gasket. See if it has any warranties on the rebuild to have them redo it. Regardless, you need it replaced. Make sure you also replace the thermostat to a low temp to keep it from overheating. And get the oil pump checked to make sure you getting oil circulation and prevent this from happening again. Good luck.

it sounds like the timing belt may have moved of the crank shaft timing gear one or two teeth ,this can happen when working with the belt tensioner you should reset all the timing marks and make sure nothing moves when the belt is retensioned

I put on a new timing belt.both cam gears marks are up,crank grear mark is in line,will not start.


the arrows should face up and there are marks on each gear that should be across from one another in between the two gears{were the gears are nearest each other} al marks should line up again after you turn the crank two complete revolutions. if not remove belt and redo. also make sure cam and crank sensors didnt get damaged/uunplugged

My 99 300m won't start


this is an interference engine. Make sure you have timing marks lined up correctly. if so then you have bent valves.As far as rebuilding or replacing it all depends on your skill level and if you want a warranty or not. Using a reman engine from jasper would come with a 3yr 75k mile warranty parts and labor. where as rebuilding your self would have none.
