Well I went and tried starting it again. After a few times it actually roughly idled for few second. The check engine light came on (flashing). Turned it off and did another check for a code and it finally showed one P1039. Mentioned #2 cylinder. Anyone know what this code means? Also does anyone know where I can find the wiring diagram for the ECM?A MultiAir problem will usually set a code. You can do a compression test.

I need help my dodge dart 2014 cranks but no compression we replaced the entire motor along with starter and now it has no compression helpppp2014 Dodge Dart SXT 2.4L
I replaced the MultiAir "brick" because I kept getting a p1067. The code would go away after changing the oil but recently the code came back up at 80% oil life. After doing some research I found out that you can't just replace that one solenoid. It has to be then entire actuator. I replaced the MultiAir Actuator yesterday with a new one and did an oil change at the same time. Now the engine cranks but won't start. There is spark, fuel pressure, and oil pressure but after checking cyl 1 & 2 i found that there is no cylinder compression what so ever. Before removing the old actuator I removed all spark plugs and made sure all 4 pistons were at the halfway mark. Can someone tell me what am I doing wrong?

Reemplacé el "ladrillo" MultiAir porque seguía recibiendo un p1067. El código desaparecía después de cambiar el aceite, pero recientemente volvió a aparecer al 80 % de la vida útil del aceite. Después de investigar un poco, descubrí que no se puede simplemente reemplazar ese solenoide. Tiene que ser entonces actuador completo. Ayer reemplacé el actuador MultiAir por uno nuevo e hice un cambio de aceite al mismo tiempo. Ahora el motor gira pero no arranca. Hay chispa, presión de combustible y presión de aceite, pero después de revisar los cilindros 1 y 2, descubrí que no hay compresión del cilindro. Antes de quitar el actuador viejo, quité todas las bujías y me aseguré de que los 4 pistones estuvieran en la marca de la mitad. ¿Alguien puede decirme qué estoy haciendo mal?
I have a 2015 dart and replaced the whole vvt and it still won’t start after the crank wait crank for two days I am not sure what the problem could be and the motor still sounds like it has no compression just free spinsYou have no compression because the valves are not closing. The vales are not closing because you have air in the Multiair actuators / AKA Multiair Brick You have to just keep cranking the hell out the engine until the actuators bleed out the air, and fill with oil. I killed my battery at least 3 times, maybe 4 times, from just cranking it over 2 days. Eventually the engine will regain compression and sputter back to life. FYI, I learned about this because I had to completely take apart my engine after getting oil and coolant mixing together from a blown head gasket. I did not use any special tool either when removing or replacing the multiair actuator / AKA Multiair Brick.
Thank you I will try tomorrow and see if it workedIf the VVAA is being replaced (new part), it is recommended that the VVAA be primed with NEW/CLEAN oil after installation. This will limit the amount of time it takes for the assembly to fill while cranking the engine. If the cylinder head cover is installed the service port can be accessed through the opening at the rear of the cover (1).

Using an oil can with a CLEAN soft tip or similar tool like a NEW plastic syringe, force CLEAN, UNUSED oil into the service port (1). Continue to inject oil until oil flows continuously from the bleed port (2) or until a maximum of 200 mL has been injected.
