.i broke down yesterday and it will crank like hell and back fires but will not run timing chain or fuel pump
My car has 300000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hello. I would typically start by doing a compression test of the engine. If the compression is low then there is a timing chain issue. If the compression is fine then you may have an issue with the ignition timing so that would need to be tested also.
