the only things u need 2 start a vehicle is spark, gas, & compression.......the gas u can smell the spark u can check w/ a screwdriver by putting it in the sparkplug boot and touching it 2 the block while someone tries 2 turn the engine over & the compression u can hear....if your car sounds pretty much normal when it's trying 2 start then your compression is good if it sounds like it's turning over way 2 fast then u have a compression problem if all 3 r present then u r probubly looking @ a timing chain that has jumped or a timing belt that has slipped
