My friend has a 2001 dodge dakota and he had been putting a lot of water in. Then when he thought a friend put water in he drove it and then it died. So my boyfriend was working on it and took off the
Heads off and put it back now it almost
started but nothing can you help
IF IT GOT HOT THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THE RINGS WENT AND LAY, HAVE COMPRESSION TEST DONE ON IT
Well he took the timing chains off and checked the pistons. He thinks it's the timing chains? Any idea's? Thank you for the information.
CHECK TIMING MARKS
He did but he doesn't want to have to take everything off again he followed by the book it all lined up.
He took it all apart the fist time because it wouldn't start this time it almost started but nothing. Could it be something else? He followed it by the book. Thank you.
Could it be a sensor? Could this be why it doesn't start? It makes a cranking sound and the truck is getting sparked. We even tried starting fluid but it won't start that way either
IF it doesnt start with starting fluid and there is spark, check the intake for leaks, or make sure the spark isnt cut off. recheck the timing aswell.
