  • dead in the water

    Well went to the tech meet and did my timing belt and water pump. Did not turn out so well. My car still won't start up. One of the owners of the shop happened to have stopped by (the older guy). He said the timing was still off. We fixed that. It was off by maybe a tooth or two. Replaced the spark plugs and got my other car to give it a jump. Still does not want to turn on. The owner said that he was going to bring in his computer tomorrow to figure it out. He said maybe the the marks that you need to line the cams up are wrong. I was thinking maybe the cam sensor is broken?

    If any one can help that would be great.

    could easily be the cam sensor.

      Did you guys remove the cam sensor at any point?

        well the cam sensor must be removed to get the valve cover off. How much to those sensors cost anyway?

            The Cam Position Sensor I had to replace on the backside was around $90 a year/year plus ago.

                    yeah it ran just fine before i came over. no problems. The car does have spark and fuel. The timing was off on the exhaust side by one tooth. It was dark and we could have messed up. But if the sensor is bad it wouldn't matter how good the timing is.

                        Did you align the timing belt pulley notch with the notch on the block?

                          And you're sure the crank didn't accidentally move? Because if the crank move, then the cam timing is off even the gears are lined up with the marks.

                            We verified that the crank was lined up with the timing marks on the block wnd the cams as wel and verified according to the manual.Man I feel kinda bad for how that thing went down,I have some of your tools if you send me your address I will mail them to you.

                              well the shop there is going to be giving me some help. He said he's got a computer with all the miata specs and what not. I'm completely stumped. I thought that it was the crank sensor and not the cam sensor that prevented a spark. Hope fully we can get this sorted out.
