Replaced cam sync still not running. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
I just replaced the cam syncro and sensor on my 00 ranger 3.0 flexfuel, and I'm pretty sure my father and I did everything correctly, but when we went to see if it would start it wouldn't. It would crank and would act like it wanted to start but then it would start popping through the intake. We followed all the steps to removing and installing the part other that disconnecting the battery since it was dead(sat in the garage all winter). Is it possible that we washed the cylinders when we tried to start it, or is there another issue, fuel pressure is good, compression was good when we checked it (tripped the inertia switch to kill the fuel pump), and it has really good spark (the spark jumped about a 2 in gap on my dad's spark tester). This has been an annoying problem and it started acting up as soon as I moved back to Michigan from South Carolina where I bought the truck. Any help is greatly appreciated, as I'm to the point of takeing the truck to the scrap yard for the lously $250 that I'd get for the weight.
