Is this a 2.0L 8 spark plug fuel injected OHC?
- Check for proper spark. Remove one plug and ground it to the engine with a pair of vicegrips. Check for a hot blue spark.
(Ignitor or secondary ignition)
- Pull one intake side spark plug. Does it smell of or is wet with fuel after cranking?
(Proper fuel delivery.)
(Fuel pressure and regulator and clean filter).
- Verify valve timing
(Timing belt slippage or failure).
This will get you started. You need three factors for fire...air, fuel and timing (compression).
Your ECM is self diagnostic on this model I believe.
