Having problems with your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire ?
I replaced the head gasket on my 97 Sunfire it doesn't start
\015 I replaced the head gasket & cyclinder Head on my 97 Pontiac Sunfire. After putting all the parts back together, it started for a while and when I test drove the car my speed was not going up, it got stuck on 20 mph only. Then, the car died. I did the alternator test already & even changed the starter & the engine is still not running. What could be the problem?\015
If your timing is off you will have no power.check and make sure all timing mark's are correct.Some engine's are contact motor's,which mean's if your timing is off you could cause damage to valve's or piston's.Also you should do a compression test to be sure each cylinder has adequite pressure.Hope this help's.
