1992 mpv 4wd 3.0 je

odd story:
recently purchased and only had time to replace the struts when the bottom of the timing belt covers rubbed a belt until it snapped off on a long freeway trip. the belt freakishly took out the hose mount on the radiator, and flash purged coolant (the guage never even changed). it went from running fine to acting like it was out of gas, and when I pulled over, there was barely any steam, but the head gasket was already blown.

the teardown and gasket replacement was uneventful and lots of pictures were taken before/during/after. when done, no error codes, cranks flawlessly, spark and compression are good and the fuel rails are charged. cannot see any disconnected wiring but it seems as though the fuel injectors are not being actuated.

any ideas or posts that I could be directed to would be appreciated!

What is the possibility that the valve timing is off? It is really easy for it to get off when you remove a head and it wouldn't take being off by much to result in what you are experiencing. The only good news is that nothing has been damaged if that is the problem.

Go through the stickies at the top of the forum page and pay particular attention to Gen1Hawaii's posts. Unfortunately, most if not all of the photos have disappeared, but the narration is still very informative.
