Just the other day i was driving my s13 around and when i got home i noticed that it was overheating so i realesed the pressure. Then 10 minutes later went and added more water. So i went to go crank it and as i did that it turned on and died atomatically it happend around 5 times now it just cranks and cranks. And a few days ago i changed the battery so i dont know what the problem could be.

I changed the spark plugs the distributer cap ant the boot. But didnt help any thing. Any one knows what could be wrong or any suggestions to elimating the problem it would be really help and i would appreciate it a lot. thanks!!!

You might wanna post a little more info...

Do you have spark? (even though you checked the plugs)
Do you have fuel? (leaky injectors etc?)

pull the wire off one of the plugs and if you have a spare spark plug lieing around plug it in to the boot you pulled off one of the plugs on the engine and set it on the engine have someone crank the engine over and look for spark. as for the fuel take the fuel line off the fuel rail and make sure you dont pull the return off you will be able to tell then all you have to do is turn the key and watch for fuel to squirt

FYI next time u add water to your car turn it on before you add cold water to a hot aluminum block it can crack or blow your headgasket and have the same problems your having now.check your oil see if its milky if it is blown HG if not probly something else.

if it is a blown gasket would the fuel pump still turn on? cuz when i crank it 2 the second one the fuel pump should be making a noise wich mine isnt! so whats ur suggestion?
