    Do you mean the catalytic converter? You do have pressure in the exhaust? Have you tested the fuell pressure?

You could also look at your check engine when you crank the engine. If the unit stays lit during cranking, you are missing the input from the crank sensor.

How much fuel pressure do I have to have before it will start,


If the car started and ran fine before the serpentine belt broke - that may be the answer to your problem.

If the belt also controls the valve timing (not the ignition timing, which is a different thing) the valve timing has probably altered. You will have to reset the valve timing using the timing marks for your vehicle.

In a worst case scenario, a snapped timing belt can allow the pistons to hit the valves and damage them. If this is the case your engine isn't going to fire up.

If you're not sure what to look for or do - give a mobile mechanic a call

2002 trail blazer will not start,fuel pressure


you might want to check to see if you got a timming chain or belt in that car.
but check that area first .
could be a broken timming belt.
you need to remove the dust cover in that area .
check for no belt present on the timming gears.
good luck,Gary

Replaceing timming belts A, and B,


If I understand you correctly it seems like belt "b" came off. If in deed it came off it is possible that it did som damage to the crank sensor and now since the computer doest have an rpm reference the vehicle won't start. You may have to revisit the work done and make sure everything is in order. Keep in mind this is an interference engine. Meaning that misalignment of the cam and crank or a belt coming off or breaking while everything is in motion will cause internal damage to the engine. Good luck.

Timming belt broke from water pump broke while driving car put new water pump on n timming belt but car doesnt start right plus shakes doesnt sound right 2001 neon dodge


Sounds like timing belt not on correctly. Check timing marks are aligned correctly when installing timing belt. This vehicle should have 2-3 marks to be aligned when installing belt.marks should be on cam gear/ crankshaft gear and intermediate shaft if engine is equipped with it.

The problem im having with the 93 rodeo is loss of power and it seems to be wasting lots of gas. ill start the truck up and after a few minutes i put into gear and apply brake then accelerate but the truck...


Check the catalitic converter.if you start it and the cat gets red hot after several minutes it is clogged. also start it and see if ti has any pressure coming out of the exhaust pipe. there should be plenty

Truck died while driving


IF THE TRUCK DIE ON THE FREE WAY AND NOW DOESN'T HAVE ANY SPARK THAN CHANCES ARE THE TIMMING BELT BROKE OR A TENTIONER FOR THE TIMMING BELT BROKE.GOOD WAY TO TELL IS IF THE MOTOR TURNS OVER ALL FASTER NOW THAN BEFORE THE TRUCK SHUT DOWN THAN THAT IS A GOOD SIGN THAT IS WHAT IT COULD BE. ANOTHER WAY TO CHECK IT IS TO DO A COMPRESTION CHECK ON ALL OF THE CYLINDERS, IF THEY ARE ALL LOW THAT IS WHERE I WOULD START. GOOD LUCK HOPE THIS HELPS
