The guy tried to tell me 300 to paint the spoiler. Talked him down to 200, since I was a returning customer. Still seems pretty steep to me.

When you try to turn it on ... what does it do?

You would need to crank the Crank Pulley and look. And there is a marker on the crank pulley that needs to be set at Top Dead Center and then you check ur cam. I don't remember how to check the Cam on an SPi ... but I assume it isn't too hard.

You may have to post this in the Tech Area ... more people with the SPi motor can best help you.

basically what happened is i started the car, was backing up and it died. Tried starting it over and over and over again but no start just cranking no start. Mechanic next door looked at the valve springs when i tried starting it and said they werent moving then he said the timing belt is broke.

Just saying.
