View Full Version : Won't Start, Backfiring from intake?

Hey all..
I just put a new timing chain / Cam Sprockets and a crank sprocket on my 92' Grand Am .. Its got the 2.3L DOHC Quad 4 in it.. Its timed exactly as it should be, As far as how I've been told to time it, From a couple people I know and using the Chiltons Manual .. I've cranked the Cams over until the the alignment dowels fit into the cam sprocket fully.. On both .. I've lined the crank sprocket up with the dot on the sprocket itself and the dot on the side of the block, Fit the chain on tightly, Its not loose anywhere.. I've turned it over twice by hand making sure nothing was hitting.. Now when I try to start it, It just continually turns over, And occasionaly backfires from the intake I guess ? .. To me it acts like its out of time.. But I dont see how it could be..
Any help on the situation would be greatly appreciated =) .. Thanks!

Please try not to be jealous of my freaking awesome paint skills..

Tell me if I've done something wrong as far as how the timing should look..
