Okay so I just finished a head gasket replacement on my 2.5 (2003 Altima). I've got it all back together, but it won't start. turns over and gets fuel but nothing.

I threw a code reader on and got a code for the variable timing solenoid. My question is... could I be getting this code if my timing is off? We were pretty sure that we were right when we put it back together, but it was tricky. Or would I only be getting this code because the solenoid is bad? It just seems weird that it would go bad like that, it ran fine before I pulled it apart.

Interesting. Maybe it's off a tooth. Try cleaning the crankshaft/camshaft sensors. If that doesn't work, I'd take a look at the chain and the markings on the sprockets.
