LucaKE Posted September 8, 2022 Report Share Posted September 8, 2022 (edited) Hi there fellow corolla nerds! I have just recently built a 5k for my ke38, and I got around to turning the key today. I took the spark plug leads off the spark plugs. The car cranks, which is good, the oil pressure light comes on, but doesn't go away. Its not currently making oil pressure. The engine was assembled with plenty of oil, so I don't believe that I've done any damage. I took off the oil filter to see if the pump was working, and oil filter is very dry! I then took off the distributor to see the little knurled camshaft gear turns and hand cranked it. Nope, no movement at all. Also, the fuel pump is not pumping/making any pressure. My suspicion is with the timing chain assembly at the front. My guess is that the cam is not being turned, but before I begin the process, what are your recommendations for how I should proceed? Cheers legends! edit: just saw i posted this in automotive discussion, not general mechanical.
