    shut off, next morning wouldn't start. checked spark plug-dry and okay. pulled timing chain, all okay. checked fuses all look okay. hear fuel pump when i turn key on. starting fluid made no difference. acts like it wants to start but won't. put in new battery.

    All the engine wants to do is turn over. Starting fluid no help at all. Had battery tested and came back just fine. Checked all fuses. The box up on the firewall behind the battery makes a weird noise when I turn the key forward to the on position

    sometimes engine will crank and then park it and come back out half an hour later and it will not crank. It turns over but will not crank. after sitting overnight it cranked but check engine light came on.
