Check for compression, you may have bent valves.

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.

Blown timimng belt,how do i retime engine when replacing timing belt


Ok first thing is remove the #1 spark plug from engine, then turn your crank until you feel air push out that cylinder that means you are at TDC (top dead center). You will then set your cams to there settings ( I am not sure if this is a inline 4 or v6) so I can't tell you the marks. But the cams pulley will have marks that will align to marks on the head, The crank will have a mark on the pulley and on the block line these up as well. I like to set the top cam marks first then clamp the belt and pulley together with a small clamp to keep the tension. after that is all lined up install the tensioner and make sure you adjust the tensioner it will have two small pin holes that will need to be turned in order to tighten the tension. ( not to loose or belt can skip, not to tight or belt will wine.) Also if the belt snap while driving you probably bent the valves and will have to do a valve job which requires removing the head,

Water pump cracked on suv and overheated, stuck head


ENGINE: ok 3.2L but there are 3 V6 engines. 2 in 3.2L size.
6VD1 (SOHC) free running,
6VD1w (DOHC) belt snap should safe here. gears, put wrong IDK.
you didnt de-mesh the 2 cam gears , right?

6VE1(DOHC) 3.5L (not free running) in last DI form. last year.



the pump seized its bearings the iT CRACKED
the engines power can do that, !
ever heard of DOHC engine before?
and interference engine and how to deal with them?
seems not.


step 8 in cam belt off says
"WARNING Align the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets with their alignment marks before removing the timing belt. Failure to align the belt and sprocket marks may result in valve damage."

the experts say, all are free running but the 3.5L direct injected engine,but the VVT may have problems too, 2004?
never turn a VVT engine backwards.
i can not speak for if the 2 cams on one head the gears are set wrong, some heads on some engines can crash intake row of valves in to adjacent exhaust valve. (wrong assemble only)
be careful,.

I have a 2001 ford focus has no compression in any of the cycl we checked the timing belt and all no damage everything looks good but no compression in engine. Was driving down road the other day it...


Hello, I have read about the Keyways in the crank and camshafts shearing off. If you disconnect the Battery and take out a sparkplug, you can turn the engine with a breaker bar. Then put a probe into the sparkplug hole and you should be able to feel the piston coming up in the cylinder. If the piston does not move you can start disassembling the front cover to check the Keyway on the crank.

If the pistons are moving. remove a Valve cover and turn the crank while watching the Valves or cam on the topside of the engine. This will give you an indication if the Cam is not turning. It is not impossible for a Cam to snap so watch to see if all parts the entire length of the cam are turning.

Another potential problem much easier to fix is the Starter bendix. If you only hear the Starter cranking without a load, was the engine turning? The Starter gear could fail and the starter will just spin while the engine does nothing.

Would be interested in the outcome of this problem.

How to remove timing belt/head for gasket replacement on 1992 ford laser 1.6


Is this an over head cam? Must be if it has a timing belt. OK, Pull everything off that is in the way, take fotos if you have to remember where everything went, air filter, intake, dist? anything, everything. Fan in the way? Timing cover, Expose the belt, highlight the timing marks on the cam and the crank, put the mark on the belt as well, Pull off rocker cover, Look underneath cam for head bolts, If the cam has to come off, Mark it with a white pen or a junk yard marker, Do not let it move from its position, Pull the cam, pull the head bolts, pull the head off. Check it for flat, see if it got hot and warped. If it did, you will need to get it planed. You might as well get it checked out while you got it off. Get a new gasket on there, no adhesive, no silicone, no glue, dry. You are supposed to use new bolts, but we'll let it slide. They cost about $50. Torque it down according to spec and pattern, Put the cam back on, align the marks, put the belt on, It should line up with the mark, or better yet, it has to. Set the tension on the belt, put the covers back on, you could crank the engine over by hand to make sure it is OK, then put it all back together, to make it easy to spin by hand, pull the spark plugs out. Get all the fan, air filter, intake, wires, cables, etc back on there, check the foto, fire it up. Hope this helps.

Can any body help put cambelt back together


You need to rotate the cam until timing marks on the sprocket are in line with the head, then make sure crank shaft timing mark is lined up. Install the belt. Might have to loosen the timing belt tensioner. Put timing belt tensioner back on, rotate the crank shaft with a wrench first to make sure there's no interference. Next, check compression.

How to replace timing belt on 1997 kia sportage


you have 2 sprokets to worry about the top two and crank gear, the crank gear has knocht on it and index on block ( towards back of gear visible from top) place on tdc mark ( top dead center), install the timing belt on this gear first then secure it with a piece of hose or anything that fits in between housing and belt to secure belt from moving from gear) then align the right side sproket on "E" for exhaust cam at top marks on cover and sprocket, then install belt over that sprocket, finally align left side sprocket "I" for intake to the top mark and install belt not too tight or it will make noise just make sure it is firm. now to double check from left to right with you standing in front of vehicle you should have left cam sprocket with "I" for intake to the top and right sproket with "E" for exhaust to the top. having bottom gear on tdc (top dead center mark) and all marks lined up with belt installed and proper tension secured, turn engine over twice and make sure marks meet in the same place then put everything back together. ( recommend you replace both idler and tension pulleys and check water pump, replace if needed or you'll be back.- this procedure goes the same to spectra, sephia, sportage, you will not damage the engine on these vehicles if belt goes out except rio. if timing belt goes out on the rio it will need an engine, if lucky just head. recommended replacement on all is every 60k miles) goo luck tightening the power steering drive belt when you put everything back together, just use a long bar to pry and good leverage. and a second hand comes in handy.
