156 ts wont start, help please
i have just got a 156 2.0 ts, i bought it as a non runner for very little money
the seller told me that it runs but had a knocking from the crankshaft bearings
after getting the car home and trying to jumpstart it turns over but does not start, it had an aftermarket immobiliser/alarm fitted which i have removed, checked the fuel cut off switch, checked it has fuel, the code light goes out so no problem there, engine management light goes out...
my next things i will be trying are compression test, check for a spark from the plugs, check maf (and of course removing the sump to check the damage)
does anyone have any suggestions?
also, would damaged crankshaft bearings be noisy on turnover? as it sounds normal when turning it over?
