You either have the belt 180 degrees off. So you have to take belt off and turn crank only (slowly) around once to its mark again, but first you need to go to a website that lists motors that are called "interference fit" engines. (Think Gates belt co. has a list) If your motor is an interference fit then when belt broke the motor is trashed. Interference fit means that pistons can hit valves if the belt breaks. That is why they tell you to replace the timing belt before too long. Also if motor is interference fit when you try and turn crank go slow because you may bump into valve.

2and3 cylinder not firing


Have you checked compression ?
Both engines are interference style which means you can damage the valves if the belt breaks while the engine is running.

Car not firing


Most likely the valves were bent.
When you attempt to start the motor does it turns over a bit fast and will not sound quit right - Not even attempt to spark up or fire up.
Check engine cylinder compression. The valves were bent when the belt broke.
you will
1. check compression (and when it fails)
2. decide to have the head checked and if possible rebuilt (use new head bolts)
or
3. Look for and buy a low milage used motor
or
4. Look for a rebuilt head

2001 ford focus will not start. The engine will turn but will not start.I have changed the fuel pump and cleaned the canister where the pump sits. new spark plugs and cables. Replaced fuel relay switch. I...


I will try to help you. You are correct about the starting fluid, if it has fire starting fluid should do something. So the problem must be either no fire to the plugs or the timing belt is broke.

Check to see if the plugs have spark. If they do not, then get with the Autoparts store and ask if your car needs a Ignition relay to run. Then ask if your car takes a rubber timing belt. If your car does not have a rubber timing belt try the Ignition relay. If you do have a rubber belt check behind the shield in front of the engine to see if the timing belt is broke.

The timing belt is different than the serpetine belt that drives the pulleys. Cars with rubber timing belts have both belts. Should your timing belt be broken it is not an expensive repair. But you will need to details on replacement of that part.

Hello.. i alredy change my timming belt but when it is done my engine shaking.. so what is the problem? can someone help pls..


Are you replacing the belt because it broke, or just routine maintenance? If you replaced it because it broke, you probably have bent valves. When a belt breaks, the cam(s) stops turning, but the pistons keep going up and down a few times before the engine stops completely. The pistons will hit the valves that were open at the time the belt broke and bend them. If this is the case, the heads must be pulled off and repaired.
