84 rampage 2.2 won’t start

2830 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  chuzz
I have a 1984 dodge rampage 2.2 automatic. Last year it just died and won’t start now. It’s getting spark and fuel. It turns over sounds like it wants to fire but won’t. I was told it was not timing either. A shop looked at it and said they think it could be electrical but it it was nothing he could handle there. Anyone have any ideas?

Is the spark bright? Have you pulled spark plugs to look at them? Are they damp or dry? Has the timing belt jumped a tooth or two? If spark and fuel are present and good, the either timing is bad or the engine can’t pump air through (like a blocked exhaust).
If compression is that low everywhere, the timing belt is what I'd suspect.
