07' 2.2 Fuel+Spark=No Start???
Hello, my brother has a 07' 2.2 that turns over but won't start. Car has 170k on it and was running good until it didn't start the other morning.
The first thing I tried was to pull any codes but the scan tool wouldn't connect, found a blown fuse (radio I think) and now the tool connects and I can get the live data but there's no codes stored.
Second I hooked up a fuel pressure gauge and it's getting around 50-55psi.
I used a spark plug light and all 4 cylinders have spark, then tried spraying starting fluid in the throttle body but won't fire. I replaced the plugs too but still nothing.
At this point I was sure it had a broken timing chain so I pulled the valve cover but everything seems okay, chain is tight and the camshaft moves freely when you turn it over.
The only thing I think it could be is a bad crankshaft position sensor that's throwing off the timing so bad that it won't even fire with the starting fluid but I wanted to get your opinion before we start spending money because my brother is a broke college student. Thanks in advance for any help!
