1300 engine died

driving down the road today and the engine just died in my 93 Suzuki. It didn't sieze up I can still turn it over (a little to well) I can also hear the fuel pump , pulled a plug wire off and no spark anywhere but all my electrical works , radio,heater,lights any ideas ?

Re: 1300 engine died

You might have broken your timing belt.

Re: 1300 engine died

check the wires leading in/out of your ignition key. mine did this last summer and it was an easy fix. timing belt sounds about right though too... good luck,

Re: 1300 engine died

Rhino, have you found the problem yet? If it is your timing belt, I have an interesting story to tell you....

Re: 1300 engine died

I'd second the timing belt. Being able to turn it over "a little too well" sounds like there's no compression - this could be because of the belt. Your cam may not be spinning, leaving your valves open during the comp. stroke.

I'll be back.

Re: 1300 engine died

Timing belt? That would cause valves to stay open, making it easy to turn over.

Are you asking a question about how a broken belt would make it easier to turn over or is your second sentence an observation?

I'll be back.
