    I just changed the head gasket in my 1996 Tacoma 4x4 2.7 speed. I can't get the truck started. I have fuel air and spark. The timing marks are correct at TDC on cyl#1, cams & crank pully. The plugs wires cap and rotor are all new. I am getting spark at all 4 plugs and fuel. I can't figure this out and we are suppose to get a large snow storm within the next 48 hours. Please help!

    Do you have enough compression to create an explosion in the cylinders ? The only thing I could think of.

    I would recheck the torque values of the head. Have someone else crank the engine, and you get under the hood and listen for odd or improper sounds.
