1.9 primastar

changed my faulty fuel pump tonight, started her up and it sounds awful, almost like there is no oil and the engine is on its last legs

as its a 1.9 the timing belt had to come off, if the timing was out would that make the noise, it fires straight up

i put a pin in to hold the crank the top i left (clown) but im sure it didnt move, these blasted engine have no TDC marking on the cam which makes ir worse

so, timing out?

On a completely different engine, different make too, I got the belt one notch out and it only just started and ran awful. It was also making a lot of smoke.

I suggest you take a look at the timing, if necessary inspect the rockers and the point they are both just opening and closing wrt to the crankshaft.

I can't believe there's no mark on the cam pulley?
