A dead cell can cause havoc in a car (this is rare, but possible). Have you checked for any altenator issues? A tits up altenator can cause a car not to start.

Do you have the fuel lines hooked up correctly?

Supply lines and returned lines are right next to each other....

so i replaced icm, still no start, but upon further investigation cuz valve cover was leaking and found out screws were loose i took off valve cover to see if what gasket i needed and to my surprise i found out 2 push rods were bent and was wondering why they got bent if car was running good in june, maybe someone sabotaged it when i took it to get brakes bleed at brakes plus cuz it did run worse when i went to pick it up or maybe something else maybe improper valve adjustment cuz the set screws are at different settings compared with each other . so now i may have to do a compression check to see if the valves are working properly

 i found out 2 push rods were bent and was wondering why they got bent if car was running good in june, maybe someone sabotaged it 

 

In my experience, this is most often due to over-revving it.

 

I have seen it happen due to a backfire, but that is maybe 10% of the time. 


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Maybe someone who had access to the vehicle did this, maybe brakes plus when they were trying to pressure bleed the brake system

over rev, mis aligned valves most common. i'd agree.... rare occurrence of a back fire

On a sidenote, kids like this irritate the living hell out of me. Claims it has a rebuilt engine and trans and now the new owner states it broke down days after purchasing it. Kid who owned it looked like some trailer trash tweaker lol. :poop:

well guess what folks? did a compression check various readings, but me and exboss mechanic checked everything again and found out that someone did a incorrect valve adjustment, probably to compensate for push rod tubes that were going bad, so we reset the valve lash setting to cold specs according to manual and sticker under hood and boom fired right up and started, god im glad that it started and runs now another issue is no lights, maybe bad switch or fuse/relay
