Hey,im a new member on the forum, used it for a year tho, to start off there's some smart and talented members.
I have a 98(210k) Bu i think a base model has 3.1 v6. I drove it to work this morning everything seemed ok as normal. Im a delivery driver so after an hour I went to start it but it will not start at all.
Replaced Alternator,Battery 18 mo. ago,Replaced starter few weeks ago(USED).
Replaced intake manifold kit,thermstat,spark plugs,basic self tune up/oil chng.
My car will crank and its not the theft issue and i can smell fuel as well. It gets as close as possible without starting, if i try to turn the key for too long
it will make a large zzzing sound (sounds like a starter messing up but 10x louder) and idk where sound is coming from.
Tried to start a hour later starts and ran maybe 1/4 second then backfired and died?
After work tried jumping off still extremely close to starting, but nada.
Trying fuses in a few hours. Will update. I heard maybe crankshaft pos. sen.
or fatherinlaw(DIY'er) suggested maybe timing problem
. Thanks for the insight.
Any suggestions on where/what to start checking to find solution would be greatly helpful. Im a student in last sem. for industrial engineering technican so i have the applitude just dont have many trouble-shooting skills. thanks happy holidays!
