Next things to check would be to make sure the gap on those plugs is correct, ignition timing, a crack in the distributor cap worn rotor or bad plug wires, faulty emmissions components, weak ignition coil, vacuum leak at the intake, dirty fuel injectors, leaky egr valve.
Not sure what engine you are working on but sometimes you can roll the engine backward and get the gear to disengauge .
Could be the TDC Sensor, sometimes called the crankshaft Sensor.
Worn main bearings sometimes knock when cold starting
What to do before starting auxiliary engine?
the engine will turn over but sometimes wont start. it also sometimes dies while its idling. whats going on
Sounds like starter going bad.
Normally it will last the life of the engine and is changed when the engine is overhauled.
It will last the life of the engine and is changed during a complete engine overhaul.
1) the vehicle is upside down 2) ownership has changed 3) common term describing cranking, or starting the engine
Every engine makes a sound when starting ... please be more specific.
If you are asking about the 2.0L engine....the ECM was changed to what is called a NGC and the crank and tone wheel(pickup for crank position sensor) was changed. Also, the blocks are not interchangeable due to the position of the crank sensor was changed. It may be possible to change the crank and and sensor then extend the harness to reach the front of the engine where it was move from the rear starting in 2003 but this would be alot of work. Everything else on the engine should changeover fine.
You probably have a vacuum leak. Check and replace all of the rubber emissions hoses around the engine.
Depends on the engine. A fuel injected engine will run the fuel pump to prime the engine. A diesel engine might have glow plugs run prior to starting. Some older heavy equipment engines had a gasoline pony engine to get the crankshaft turning prior to starting the engine.
Yes a blocked exhaust will keep the engine from starting
Since it is starting from 0, the engine idle is low.
Your engine could be losing power and your check engine light coming on for many reasons. It could be your spark plugs needing to be changed. Your fuel pump or fuel filter could be clogged or starting to wear out, or your engine oil is to low.
That would be a judgment call on what the old belt looked like.
Changing a valve cover gasket really has nothing to do with an engine starting or not. You need to check your power and gas for problems in starting.
Sometimes the name is on the plastics. You can probably find it on the side of the engine. Just look all around the engine and you should be able to find it.
Because sometimes, doing things the WRONG way can damage the equipment, or damage YOU. Engines are like that, sometimes. Some engines will not start if you do not follow the correct starting procedure, especially older petrol engines, diesel engines and steam engines.
Have it checked for codes. The code should give an indication to the cause.
please confirm the year and engine type or size, in general, it could mean a weak oil pump. i have a85 Nissan 720 4x4 2.4 ,and the engine is new and it does it too ,its normal ,sometimes it does it and sometimes it doesnt.
If the engine has a timing belt, it should be changed around the 150K mark. If there is a timing chain, it does not have to be changed unless it is damaged.
