Engine Mechanical problem
1990 Mercury Sable 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 127000 miles
i recently treated my engine for a blown head gasket. The result as follows.
had the heads tested and serviced, new top end gasket set installed, new thermostat. Set #1 TDC on compression, set rotor to #1, set FO. Now the problem is the motor either rotates and will not start unless I use ether, but fails to run on its own or when gas petal is press it shuts off. I replaced the fuel pump, now I have 39-40 psi at the rail. Got it to start but will not idle or run on its own. Replaced battery but now it is acting like it is having a hard time turning over, almost like it has too much compression. Took all the plugs out and it turns over freely. I am at my whitsend please help!
