Will not start ran hot then replaced head gasket with new head set put back togeher would not start. Put new camshaft sensor on where should I start next?


Have it towed to the nearest ASE certified repair shop ! What's missing Tammy ? Is there spark ,Is there fuel pressure ? Did you have to take timing chain off to replace head gaskets ? are the timing marks set right ? Why did you replace cam sensor ? You need to find out what is missing first.

What is the compression psi


Hi Randy you need at least 150 psi to start. Check the timing belt it might have broken or slipped.

Ran Hot Won't Start


You just blew your head and gasket. I just had that same thing happen last month. When it over heated is the time that you blew the engine head's gasket. When you kept driving it is when you damaged your engine head. You also should have noticed that the as soon as you put water in the radiator that it was leaking out back of engine from the freeze plug or plugs. Cost of freeze plug is couple bucks "looks like small cup cake tin." The Freeze plug has to be replaced 1st, but depending on how bad the head is damaged you could get off cheap by pouring in a $40 gasket sealer liquid down into the radiator and lots of water to keep the water level up. I would also remove the thermostat and put host back on. Since your car is older that I do not think it ruined the values or rods.

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.
