I recently purchased a 2005 SRX. The engine will turn over and hit once and sounds noisy, but after it tries to start once it only cranks over and over. Replaced a cam sensor that did not fix it. Pulled the intake, most of the bolts were loose. What could be causing this not to start?
No I did not change the spark plugs, but I took all of them out and ran a compression test and found no compression on any of the cylinders. I bought this vehicle from the bank it was a repo. I was hoping to get lucky and it be a simple fix. What would cause a engine with 114,000 miles to go bad this soon?
I don[t understand, why would watching the crank turn over make a difference/ Is there a post on how to replace and remove a northstar in our srx. I have removed the left valve cover and the chain is intact and it does not look as if it has jumped time. I guess i will take off the other valve cover and strip the front of the engine to see the chain assembly. This thing is hard to work on.
