View Full Version : Wont start rotates backwards

11-18-2006, 10:03 PM
MY friend has a 94 camaro. The engine will not start and when he stops cranking the starter the engine begins to rotate backwards a few seconds & shoots fuel out the air inlet tube. Some times it does start but is very rough until he gets the rpms up above 3000. I am at a loss as to what to tell him as I know very little about electric fuel injected cars.

Sounds like the timing chain jumped a tooth or 2, it's ready for a new one.

Did you just do some work on the car ?? And, if you did, what was done ??

Timing definately... but what was done recently to induce this ??

NO work has been done as far as I know. He is not a mechanicly inclined individual. Other than wheels the car is completely stock.
