2002 Mercury Villager cranks but wont start. It was running we changed the valve cover gaskets and now it won't start


Recheck all the connections that were disconnected when you changed the gaskets. Also moving brittle wires sometimes causes them to break .

I have a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara i just replaced valve cover gaskets and spark plugs now the vehicle does'nt start it cranks but does'nt it has fuel but its nnot


no engine stated, and is an engine question.
G16,J20, or H25?
1.6l, 2.0L or v6 ?
my guess, is you removed spark plug wires and put them back out of order, never do that, always change wires 1 by 1.
or the firing order will be wrong, (cops excepted, coil over plug)

how many coil packs do you have.
1
2
4
6?
we cant guess any of that.

How to change head gasket rx300 2009


This is pretty involved as you must remove top of engine completely. Top cover reveals all your air intake manifold and there quite of hoses, brackets to remove as well. Do you know which head or you planning to do both? A YouTube video shows the process of changing valve cover gaskets, which shows the efforts required to start this job.

Valve cover gaskets


Valve cover gaskets are a snap, even for a real dummy.  Get a set, don't fall for the "BEST IN THE MARKET".  All you need is a cheap set of something, that will seal the covers.  Get a small tube or bottle of NON-HARDENING sealer.  Clean both surfaces , put some sealer on the engine, and the valve cover, put the gasket in place and tighten it down to a few foot pounds of torque.  It doesn't need to be cranked down tight enough to hold back an elephant, just enough to squeeze the gasket.  Let it dry overnight before you start the engine.

Need to replace valve cover gaskets on 1992 camry and howmany are they


Buy the valve cover gasket in one of local auto part stores.
Don't start the car, put it on parking breaks. If you drove before wait when engine cools down. After then you will need a 10 mm wrench (it can have different size). Loose all nuts on the valve cover. After that remove the cover carefully. It's possible that you will have to disconnect and loose more stuff from the valve cover. When you open the cover you will see 4 gaskets for each spark plug place remove them also. Now you will need something to clean surface where the gaskets go. It can be special spray to degrease surface or it can be regular gas. Don't spill any liquid on the engine it can be harmful. You can use also sandpaper of minimum roughness to clean the surfaces. After that put the spark plug gaskets on it's places. If they don't stay there you have to buy special sort of glue (usually it's not a case). Then put the valve cover gasket on it's place, there are special grooves. Install the valve cover gasket extremely careful the valve cover gasket is very fragile. After you putted everything on its places start to tighten. You should do that in certain order. Start from one of the edges then middle opposite side and then the side from which you started but another edge (the same for another side). Don't tighten it comletely for one time, make couple "rounds" before you finish. After you check and connect everything remove all your stuff from the engine compartment and start the engine. Don't close the hood you need see that there is no leakage.
