Welcome to fixya

There is a way to check the timing ...a timing light but if the cars not running this will not help i would call that shop and tell them they messed your car up and have them fix it ...could be a lot more wrong with it other then just the timing if they pulled the heads

hpe this helps out

Turns over but no spark, after new head askets


are you asking this 3 times removed? really>????
is this the 4 cam v6 or 2?
the 4 cam has 2 gears for 2cams and belt drive. 6ve1
the 2 cam v6 has no gears.
6ve1 engine, they have real names and all run different EFI controls
all do.

ok no spark (tested the wrong way !!!)
fuses good. or not, we test them not guess, on (looks ok)
you need to run compression on any engine with new head (or pulled) or leakdown 10x more safe.
that be first. you can bend valves on the 4 cam engine
(not on 2valve engines,one per bank)
forget the 2 CMP sensors on rear of both heads.?
spark dead on all 6 spark plugs
ckp dead.
CMP 1 or 2 dead
fuse blown.
has 6 ignition coils right, (usa) called C.O.P.'S.

i bet you didnt scan it cranking did you
if the pcm on the 6ve1 engine, sees cams turn wrong
it cuts spark to keep from bending over the head valves
the cams must be timed correctly and not in a cavalier manor
what's your engine vin code 8th digit
that tells the helper what engine is there, as you seem not to know.
there are 3 different V6 used here.

i see you really didnt check spark, just assumed it.
why? extend one cop, use fresh grounded test spark plug
omg got spark omg on all 6 in fact
omg compression is dead. x6 bent valves.

i never ever ever, crank any DOHC engine (messed with like this)
until the leak down test passes, by hand with shop air.
this act,saves further damage

VIN = Y or W
eight digit of vin is engine code. !!!
are 4 camsl

its flooding
so, compression is gone
sparks gone
or it over injecting for some reasons
if compression is ok, 150psi +
and parks good
secret wide open throttle will clear floods, (cut fuel mode )
but all this is risky on any 4 cam interference engine.

when i put the belt back (assuming cams not removed)
I check cam timing 2 time or 3 times, or risk bending valves.
6ve1
then do the leak down test now, just like you are there.
hand turned crank. (at each of the 6 TDC points(skills)
opps its got 0psi on many cylinder
that means valves are bent.

here is the SM quote step 4 belt install
WARNING If any binding is felt when adjusting the timing belt tension by turning the crankshaft, STOP turning the engine, because the pistons may be hitting the valves.
one can just throw an engine like that back together.
they also told you to set cam timing first, before pulling heads
or damage can happen,
but that depends on the event
belt snapped, jump cogs or just leaking head gasket.

Check all of the battery terminals and cables and check the wires on the starter/selonoid, start from the battery and follow the cable out and check all conections , clean and tighten them and if it still does it the starter/selonoid is bad and needs replacement...

pls do rate the solution

thanks.

I have a 90 civic ex 1.6 and it was mixing water in oil and blowing antifreeze out the exhaust when i got it. pulled head and the gassket was blown. replaced it and the problem remained the same. replaced...


To check the block, you can magna flux it or have the machine shop do this for you. Also, was the head a new or used head or reconditioned? Is it warped and in need of shaving?

Perhaps, the new head gasket is leaking, even though it has been replaced.
I know it's a lot of work to get the Honda head gaskets to work right.

My 1992 Honda civic is missing on one cylinder, has compression,has spark and I replaced the fuel injector, what could be wrong


I had the same problem, and I found it by running the car in a low lighted area. I saw the spark jumping out of the #1 cylinder wire to the top of my metal valve cover. I replaced my wires and all was well. My wires had long plastic boots that inserted into aluminum tubes. It was an over head cam motor, so there was quite a reach to get to the plug. Anyway, take the wire off, put a spark plug in it. (not the one in the cylinder, leave it there.) get a new plug, or old plug. lay the wire so that the spark plug tip is touching metal. start your car and look to see if the spark is jumping across the gap of the plug or jumping out earlier somewhere along the wire.

1995 honda civic d15b7 cranks but wont start. new


Are you sure you have correct timing? its definetly a fule problem, if timing is good then turn your key to the on position and try to listin for the fule pump to prime. While the key is in on position go to fuel rail, there is a valve on fule rail called sharader valve. Get a small screw driver and press valve in to check if car has fule pressure. if pressure is present then it is incorrect timing or possible bad cam sensor.

2002 honda civic water is blowing out of the coolant tank


Sorry to hear all this has been going on and the obvious hasn't been detected by a shop. All those parts probably would not of had to be replaced. This is a classic systom of a blown head gasket. Not every head gasket blown will have coolant in the oil. Compression leak from a cylinder will enter water passage in head and blow out the coolant because compression is greater pressure than coolant system pressure.

How to test head gasket (non running engine)?


Yes, remove all of the spark plugs, and test each cylinder individually. This will tell if the gasket has sealed properly. Once you get the engine running, do this again to see if it can hold combustion pressures.
