Why is my 1990 grand am 3.2 v6 sputtering and back firing after I changed timing chain


you must of not put the chain on right. to set it right you must have the number one pistion at the top of cylinder on compression stroke. then line up your timeing marks on the cam shaft then put on the chain.

Lifters/car not starting


Do you have the 2.2 liter Ecotec 4-cylinder engine, the 3.5 liter V6, or the 3.9 liter V6 engine? If you have the 2.2 liter engine, there may be a camshaft/timing chain issue if you skipped a tooth when you put the chain back on the cams. If it's a 3.5 or a 3.9 liter V6, you may have incorrectly installed the push rods back into the engine. 3.5 liter intake push rods are approx 5 3/4" long, while the exhaust push rods are approx 6" long.
The 3.9 liter intake push rods are approx 5.81" long, while the exhaust push rods are approx 6.1" long. If you mix the two lengths up when you put them back in the engine, you're going to have problems.

I currently own a 1986 Ford Ranger 2.9 V6, RW Drive. Was driving like a charm!! I was driving it yesterday morning, no problems, I parked it after 10 minutes of driving... Last night I went to start it, it...


The cranking will usually sound different after the timing chain has slipped. Does it spit or backfire when you crank it? I suggest you rule out some easier things before going after the timing chain. If you are getting spark and fuel, then maybe I would take a peek at the timing chain to see if it has skipped on the sprocket.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Car won't fire. I change the ignition coil and crank sensor.


I had a Beretta a while ago. I think it was an 89 or 90. It had a 3.1 engine. I don't know if the 2.8 used the same system, but at least one of the coil packs went bad and the car wouldn't start. It was running fine when I shut it off to go apply for a job and wouldn't start when I came back out. You could try looking at that.
