ello folks ive just fitted a head gasket on a sportrak 16vi,i had a mechanic put the timing belt on
and i put the rest back today,thing is i cant get it started.
and it sounds different when turning over as if its spinning.
the mechanic stopped buy today and said thats normal when you,ve just had a head gasket done theres no compression in the engine and that it has to build up
also said when he worked for a garage some cars after a new gasket were a bitch to start and some would have to be dragged round the block.
what do you say?have any of you had the same trouble do i just keep turning it over till it go,s cheers daz.
