Do a compression test and look at the oil and the coolant.
spray fuel spray into the air intake at the throttle body,and if it fires you have a fuel issue. if not,check for spark with a tester .if no spark it could be a crank or cam sensor,coil, etc that is the cause.

2000 mazda 626 over heated and turned of but not before white smoke came out tail pipe , now won't turn over , sounds really rough when I try.


It probably does have a blown head gasket unfortunately. And it will not crank? or just not fire up?

If it will not even crank, the motor may have seized. If so the damage may be so severe that another motor from the wreckers yard is the best option, unless you are handy with a wrench..

No spark I believe?


the valves can be open if the cam is still in the head, if you remove the cam and any of the valves are open they are probably bent, this can happen if the timing belt is out of time the pistons hit the valves, if that's the case have the valves replaced and check the heads for damage, the replace head and new timing belt, making sure the timing is correct

98 nissan frontier cranks but wont start when hot


Unless the head gasket is leaking, I would think you are looking for something electrical that is not working when hot, or a fuel problem.
Do you know if you have spark and fuel pressure when it will not start ?

Car turns over but does not start. Battery good


If it over heated, could have bad head gasket's, fill radiator with water, crank engine with radiator cap off, if water is push out of radiator while cranking, bad head gaskets', also remove spark plug's, crank engine if any water, bad head gasket, also when spark plug's removed, check for any water on them.If there is any water on plug's, bad head gasket, also could try doing a cylinder compression test, if bad compression, head gasket, no compression, wont start that way.

I put new gaskets in a 1990 5.0 f150. It cranks good but wont start. It has compression, gas and spark. What is wrong/or needs to be checked?


Your timing is off. Did you have the distributor out when you changed gaskets or maybe took the plug wires off?
