Re: 1994 sho wont shart

it looks as like it should be getting gas, unless im completly missing something, but i pulled the line out of the engine and it was pouring out, i tried a spark plug tester on each plug, and the light lit up, as far as timing, im not too sure, didnt really expect that to be a problem, cause of the way it died. although the mechanic at the dealer, told me to pull off the cam cover and check if a cam shattered. which also was not the case.

thanks

you need to check if the spark is a solid blue , that it arrives at the right time and the motor has correctly timed compression , also are you SURE the fuel is getting past the injectors ?
of colour spark indicates coil or ignition modual might be faulty , if you say its ok I suspect maybe fuel delivery

Spark should be a strong blue , I suffered a failed coul recently and it wouldnt start and threw a yellow spark , sometimes the ignition modual if it has a dizzy can cause this , can you try another coil ?
good luck

Re: 1994 sho wont shart

i dont have access to another coil, i had a similar problem with a honda accord. there was a ton of corrosion, i will check if that could be the case, is there a way to have the coil checked ?
thanks

Have you run the codes? The crank senser or cam possition senser may be out, before you though a lot of parts at it, run the codes.

worst case is replace the coil and not fix it , or have a sparky come repair it .. remove a spark lead and test again for strong BLUE spark. then decide. Maybe a wrecker has a good coil ?
