Exclamation Peugeot 508 2013 - Engine rebuilt but still won't start

Over a month ago whilst driving down the motorway my Peugeot 508 just lost power and i had to pull onto the hard shoulder and get it towed to the garage.

It turns out the timing belt had lost a lot of teeth and as a result the timing went and the engine needed some work. My mechanic has rebuilt the engine now 3 times making sure everything is timed up and built correctly with all new parts but the car still won't start, they have checked everything the can think of including fuel tank & sensors etc.

Has anyone else had this issue or have any idea what the problem could be? like i said it's been over a month and we're still none the wiser to what's stopping the engine from starting

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried the bleep test to make sure the key hasn't lost it's programing? With the key in the ignition open the door and it should bleep, if it does then the immobiliser is ok.

What engine are we talking about

Live data readings while cranking will help the diagnosis after the above mentioned beep test.

It's a 1.6 hdi engine, the mechanic is going to try that bleep test tonight so hopefully that works

Tried the bleep test and that wasn't the problem, so we're still trying to get the the bottom of the issue so any other suggestions or recommendations on a fix it would be greatly appreciated.

I had an issue with a C3 as did a garage next to me with a partner van after cambelt failure my car started but smoked badly partner would not start turns out the cam lobes on these cams are able to move and the impact when the valves hit the pistons moved the lobes once camshafts were swapped both engines worked perfectly.

Check your cam lobes you need to compare it to a new one as my ones looked ok but were indeed wrong but not far wrong !
