I installed a new head gasket and now the car will not. It turns over but does not start and it seems that my spark plugs (I pulled them out and connected then to the spark plug wires and there is not fire or spark). Please help!

Hey BRYON,

First check all system grounds which can get left off when doing a big job like that, Also check the grounds and the battery. Next check all fuses they can sometime blow when reconnecting the battery.

Please check the injector pulse to see if the system sees the engine turning over, here is a guide

Please let us know what you find so it will help others.

Best, Ken
