    have you looked at the timing belt??? if it's broken, sounds to me like your running into valves...time for a new head...better yet, just get another motor...if i am correct that is

    Did you make sure that the timing is correct and not a couple teeth off?

    Check for spark.

    Check for fuel: crank it over a few times then remove one of the sparkplugs and see if you can smell gas

    Just keep crankin it! Mine wouldn't start for the longest time and you know what was wrong? NOTHING!!!! It just needed to be cranked over a few times. Most of these motors have been sitting on a lot for 5 yrs or more so give it some time. Now if it won't crank after like an hour of cranking, you have a definite problem.

    It might be your fuel pump. Use a volt meter to check if the fuel pump is getting power. If it is then the fuel is cashed. Also check the main fuel pump relay under the dash.
