Engine Mechanical problem
1991 Other Oldsmobile Models V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles
I have a 1991 olds wagon with a 305 msd distributor.
The car started normal and ran about 2 to 3 seconds, then it stalled. When I tried to restart it, it rolled over hard like it jumped time.I changed the cap and rotor, it made no difference. Due to the mileage I tore the front off and checked the timing chain. The chain was baddly worn, but did not jump time. Iput a new timing chain and gears in. This made no differnce.
I am getting spark and fuel, but it will not run. It sounds like I am getting pre-ignition. Can you give me some things to check?How can I test the ECM?The spark is not in time. Thank You
