My head gasket blew out so i did that and it never turned back on so i did the timing chain and nothing so i put fuel filter nothing new plugs and still get it what else could or be

Year make and model ?
It takes spark, fuel, and compression at the right time for an engine to run. So you are probably missing one or more of these three things.
Have you checked compression on all cylinders ? Is the cam timing correct ? Do you have fuel and spark ?

What is the reason piston #4 is misfiring

The misfire could be being caused by a number of things, such as:
1. Worn/dirty spark plug - Clean/replace spark plug/s
2. Spark plug lead breaking down - Replace spark plug lead
3. Or possibly the intake gasket. If the intake gasket is leaking it causes a vacuum leak. with this vacuum leak at idle it will cause a misfire. - To check this, take a can of carb cleaner (or WD-40 may also work) and when the car is running, spray it along the intake by cylinder number If you see/hear the engine change then you have a leaking intake gasket.
Trust this helps

2001 Buick Regal keeps stalling and running rough has white smoke coming out of tail pipe

The upper intake plenum is leaking coolant into the cylinder heads. The head gaskets on this motor are awesome. So, chances are it's the upper intake plenum. You can check this, by removing the vacuum hose that runs between the upper plenum and the brake booster. Stick your finger in and try to touch the top of the lower intake manifold. If your finger is wet it the upper plenum. You might as well replace the lower intake gasket while you're performing this work because they are prone to failure also. Use a shop vac to pull any coolant out of the cylinder heads. Get brand new spark plugs because the old ones are probably fouled. Once you get the plenum and gaskets replaced, remove your fuel pump relay and leave the spark plugs out and turn the engine over repeatedly for about 10 seconds to push any excess coolant out of the cylinder heads. Then, put the spark plugs in and turn the engine over for 10 seconds again. This will burn excess fuel as coolant out. Then, replace the fuel pump relay to allow fuel to be pumped into the heads. Car will smoke for a few when it fires up, but will clear out quickly. CHANGE THE OIL! Twice within a week if possible.

1997 olds bravada, 4.3 Liter . Lower intake blew its gasket. replaced gasket. cranks but wont start. rotor / dist. was marked prior to removal. placed back in original postion. #1 plug is sparking. coil...

Reinstalling the distributor can be tricky due to the worm gear. Did you verify that the rotor points to the #1 terminal when piston #1 is at tdc? Can you check the timing with a light?

Engine vibration at idle, goes away after a little acceleration, mostly when the engine is still cold..

Check the rpm gauge while running. If the RPM needle fluxuates while idling that is caused by a defective spark plug and or a spark plug wire

Head gasket was leaking on my 86 mr2 Replaced the

Check all the wiring connections that you loosened or took off when you removed the head. something is loose or disconnected ,eg., ground wires .
Make sure you have spark at spark plugs whemn cranking ,and fuel pressure.
Did you try spraying starting-fluid in the intake, see if the engine runs for a little bit.
Compression to be anything above 100 psi will firean engine ,sometimes lower too.

How to replace head gasket and how to put it back in time when assembling back together on 2.4l (quad4) engine??

There will be marks on the cam gear and the crank gear. Some are dots, some are diamond shaped. You just line the two up so the top mark is directly over mark on the crank. You may have to turn the crank by hand which is easier with all the plugs out, to line it up. You will want to drain oil,change filter, and put in new oil to get rid of contaminated oil in oilpan.
If you fail, you are not talking about a lot of money to try to fix the top of the engine compared to engine replacement. For the most part, you could still tow it.
You could ask how much it would cost just to replace the gasket and let someone else bust their knuckles.

There may be a ground wire that you forgot to put back or a power wire that give power to the coils. Re-check all electrical wiring and make sure they are all connected. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
