    hey guys i just finished putting in a new headgasket in my dads old 1994 Civic DX. I tried to start her up today and it would just cranks and cranks I am getting fuel to the rail and all the connectors look good. Could i have damaged a sensor while cleaning the head/tb-intake. The timing should be fine to i did not disturb the cam engine block and it was TDC. I dont have any codes to point me in a direction i am just scratching my head. If anyone can tell me what sensors to test that would cause this problem i would be grateful

    It is most likely a timing issue or you forgot to plug in a sensor...

    see if it has spark. If it has spark, see if starts with starting fluid. If it runs rough on the starting fluid, then it's a timing issue. If it runs fine on the starting fluid, then it's a sensor.

    So i tested for spark today and did not get anything :( then i tested the ignition coil with my multimeter so it seems like that could be the problem
