Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 152800 miles
I'm working on a friends 97 olds cutlass (3100 v6) she says it was driving normal and just cut out. 152K miles on it, and for what she paid I'm sure no real upkeep has been done on the car. It turns over fine, and sounds like it's about to start, but wont. It has fuel pressure and spark. (I verfied both and if you keep cranking the engine it backfires through the intake) It sounds like it might have jumped timing. But before I take the front of the motor off I was wondering if there are any sensors that could have gone bad, -cam positioning or crank positioning and if the car had a belt or chain? Or any other ideas?
have the same problem?
