Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.com.
The fuel pressure should be 50 to 57 psi. You are a little high, but it should run. If the engine is backfiring and has sat for four years, I have a feeling you have some valves that are stuck open causing the backfire and no start.
You mentioned checking compression. That is where I would start.
This link shows in general how to check it. You may already know, but thought I would add it in case.
Here are the directions specific to your vehicle for checking compression. The attached picture correlates with these directions.
Engine Compression Test
J 38722 Compression Tester
A compression pressure test of the engine cylinders determines the condition of the rings, the valves, and the head gasket.
1. Important: The battery must be at or near full charge. Do not block the throttle open.
Remove the air duct from the throttle control module.
2. Remove the ignition control modules.
3. Disable the fuel system.
4. Remove the spark plugs.
5. Measure the engine compression, using the following procedure:
1 Firmly install J 38722 to the spark plug hole.
2 Have an assistant crank the engine through at least four compression strokes in the testing cylinder.
3 Check and record the readings on J 38722 at each stroke.
4 Disconnect J 38722.
5 Repeat the compression test for each cylinder.
6. Record the compression readings from all of the cylinders. A normal reading should be approximately 1482 kPa (215 psi). The lowest reading should not be less than 70 percent of the highest reading.
7. The following are examples of the possible measurements:
When the compression measurement is normal, the compression builds up quickly and evenly to the specified compression on each cylinder.
When the compression is low on the first stroke and tends to build up on the following strokes, but does not reach the normal compression, or if the compression improves considerably with the addition of three squirts of oil, the piston rings may be the cause.
When the compression is low on the first stroke and does not build up in the following strokes, or the addition of oil does not affect the compression, the valves may be the cause.
When the compression is low on two adjacent cylinders, or coolant is present in the crankcase, the head gasket may be the cause.
8. Install the air duct to the throttle body.
9. Install the spark plugs.
10. Enable the fuel system.
11. Install the ignition control modules.
If compression is off and you determine the timing chain has jumped or is an issue, here are the directions for replacing it. The remaining pictures correlate with these directions.
Timing Chain and Sprockets Replacement
J 44221 Camshaft Holding Tool
J 45059 Angle Meter
1. Remove #1 cylinder spark plug.
2. Remove the camshaft cover.
3. Remove the camshaft position (CMP) sensor.
4. Remove the engine front cover.
5. Rotate the crankshaft in the engine rotational direction clockwise, until the #1 piston is at top dead center (TDC) on the compression stroke.The word Delphi on the exhaust camshaft position actuator will be parallel with the cylinder head to cam cover mating surface.
6. Caution: Refer to Camshaft Holding Tool Caution in Service Precautions.
Install the J 44221 to the rear of the camshafts.
7. Release the tension on the timing chain by moving the tensioner shoe in.
8. Place the tee into the tensioner to hold the shoe in place.
9. Remove the exhaust camshaft position actuator bolt.Discard the bolt.
10. Remove the exhaust camshaft position actuator.
11. Remove the intake camshaft sprocket bolt.Discard the bolt.
12. Remove the intake camshaft sprocket.
13. Remove the timing chain.
14. Remove the crankshaft sprocket.
15. Clean and inspect the timing chain and sprockets. Refer to Timing Chain and Sprockets Cleaning and Inspection.
1. Important: Ensure the #1 piston is at TDC. The pin on the crankshaft for the timing chain sprocket should be straight up.
Install the crankshaft sprocket to the crankshaft snout.
2. Important: Every 7th link of the timing chain is darkened to aid in aligning the timing marks.
Install the intake camshaft sprocket into the timing chain.Aligning the dark link (1) of the timing chain with the timing mark on the intake camshaft sprocket.
3. Feed the timing chain down through the opening in the cylinder head.
4. Install the timing chain on the crankshaft sprocket.Aligning the dark link (2) of the timing chain with the timing mark on to the crankshaft sprocket.
5. Important: Ensure the alignment pin is properly engaged with the camshaft
Install the intake camshaft sprocket onto the intake camshaft.
6. Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.
Install the new intake camshaft sprocket bolt.
1 Tighten the intake camshaft sprocket bolt to 20 Nm (15 ft. lbs.).
2 Use the J 45059 to rotate the intake camshaft sprocket bolt an additional 100 degrees.
7. Ensure the camshaft actuator is fully advanced prior to installation.
8. Install the exhaust camshaft actuator into the timing chain.Aligning the dark link (1) of the timing chain with the timing mark (1) on the exhaust camshaft position actuator sprocket.
9. Notice: The camshaft actuator must be fully advanced during installation. Engine damage may occur if the camshaft actuator is not fully advanced.
To aid in aligning the actuator to the camshaft, use a 25 mm (1 inch) wrench on the hex of the camshaft to rotate
Ensure the alignment pin is properly engaged with the camshaft
Install the exhaust camshaft actuator onto the exhaust camshaft.
10. Install the new exhaust camshaft actuator bolt.
0 Tighten the exhaust camshaft actuator bolt to 25 Nm (18 ft. lbs.).
1 Use the J 45059 to rotate the exhaust camshaft actuator bolt an additional 135 degrees.
11. Remove the tee in the timing chain tensioner to regain tension on the timing chain.
12. Remove the J 44221 from the camshafts.
13. The dark links (1) on the timing chain should be aligned with the marks on the sprockets as shown.
14. Install the engine front cover.
15. Install the camshaft position (CMP) sensor.
16. Install the camshaft cover.
17. Install #1 cylinder spark plug.
I added these directions just in case. It is not an easy one to do.
Let me know if this helps. Also, if you find the compression is low, do a wet compression test to confirm it is not a ring problem. Let me know what you find.
