I have changed the headgasket on my ford probe 1997 4cyl 2.0 with 135000 Miles -Manual transmission. Everything checked and is ok; cranks but doesn't start! There's fuel thrown by injectors, there's a spark, good compression but when crancking I got only the 3rd Cyl getting slightly warmed. Which mean that sparks at the wrong time and the ignition wires are correctly pluged to their orders.
while I was changing the headgasket and when removed the distibutor I do remember that I turned its sprocket a few turns to inspect the smoothness and I wonder if this could be the reason, if yes how to set it to the right timing position? Please help !
have the same problem?
