Gm 350 runs rough and back fires at idle after head replacment


Sounds Like a timing issue . If you rebuilt it i feel silly to ask if you set the timing to 12-13 BTDC . And also keep in mind it could be 180 degrees out (same marks yet still a little bit off...) Keep me posted with more info and ill keep replying

88 jeep cherokee turns over but won't start... as if its out of gas... its not!


Try spraying a little ether in the throttle body/carb and if it starts and runs for a little bit then dies then you have a fuel problem. Probably a pump or fitler. If you replace the pump also replace the filter. Note: if you are trying to start it with the ether in it and its not starting and you see a little fire keep turning it over to **** the fire into the engine, etherwise you will burn up your glaskets.

My jag xj sport v8 3.2 will not start


give the battery a full charge....un clip the air filter housing and leave it resting in place, put your foot to the floor on the gas pedal and keep cranking til it starts up,dont release the ignition key til it fires up,it will pop and bang and then when it fires up will smoke for a little bit (couple of mins) and then it will be fine.
If that doesnt work you will have to remove all 8 plugs,clean them,pour about 2 teaspoons in each cylinder before replacing plugs then do the same as above.
What happens with these engines is the cylinders get a bit too much fuel in them and it washes the oil away down the bores thus losing comression so it wont start.Instead of starting it up and switching it off briefly,let it run a bit and then give it a little rev before switching off...hope this helps
