I have a 2000 Ford Taurus with DOHC engine, 119,000 miles. I replaced a head gasket. With the DOHC engine, you have to tear apart the whole engine to remove the head (oil pan, timing chain cover, etc.) I did this in my spare time, and the whole process took about 3 months. The car will not start. I have checked fuel pressure, the fuel injectors, all spark plugs are firing. The engine cranks a bit slower than usual, even with a new battery.
My guess is that it's hard to start after setting up for 3 months. If this is the case, then is there something I can do to make it easier.
have the same problem?
