The timing may be out.The timing chain may have been installed wrong with the timing marks out of alignment with the ones on the camshaft and crankshaft.If the distributor was removed that could be it too. To time it, if the timing chain was installed right , Take off the distributor cap. Make a mark where the number one spark plug wire is. remove the number one spark plug. turn the motor manually (in nuetral) with the parking brake on.Turn the motor and install a screwdriver or other shaft inside the number one sparkplug hole. Turn until it is at the top and you can feel it with the screwdriver. turn the rotor to the mark you placed on the number one wire. replace the cap. remove the screwdriver and replace the sparkplug . Your engine should be timed now. if not check your timing belt to see if it is in alignment with the proper marks on the cam and crankshaft.

My 2007 lincoln mkx over heated yesterday so we shut it off right away. Found water/coolant in the crank case. Wondering what a common problem in these cars is that would cause this?

It could be from a head gasket problem so have a compression test done
most times if there is no evidence of a gasket failure , the reason can be found to be corrosion holes behind the water pump impeller in the timing chain housing
these holes allow water into the sump by way of the timing chain
if that is the case the fix is a new timing chain case

Timing chain guide broke on a 2007 Chevy malibu Eco tech engine 4cylinder. I've had the head reworked, new timing chain kit, head bolts, etc. I just got the head on and set the timing. Now here's my...

First, are you rotating in the correct direction? Second, remember, timing chain tension is held tight by oil pressure on the rear timing chain guide. If the engine is not running, there is nothing there to keep it tight.

My 4.7 2002 dodge 1500 will not start

i purchased a new timing chain set and the cam pickup was bad on the new cam gear and we had a no start problem. i took the valve covers back off put the old gear on the cam and it started. BUT be careful if u do that you have to wedge the timing chains apart before you remove that gear so the hyd adjusters do not over expand. 4.7 dodge engines **** BIg they made them trying to save gas but the parts and repair over-ride any gas saving i got.

Check the cam/crank sensors. Also, if the car happens to have a distributor, make sure it is not 180 degrees off. If this does not help, then do a compression check. Remember, and engine only needs three things to run. Fuel, Spark, and Compression. (in order of course.) The firing order for your engine is 1,4,3,2.
