Re: URGENT!!! Need to get my car started before tomorrow's cruise!!!
having never done a multi-point conversion i wouldnt really know, but heres a list of things i do when a car wont start.
car needs spark, fuel, air and compression.
take a sparkplug out and earth it to the rocker cover and see if its sparking.
put your ear to the fuelpump in the boot and make sure its priming the lines (you'll hear a humming noise for a few seconds when the car is turned to accessory position). if your conversion doesnt incorparate priming, unplug a the fuel line attached to the fuel rail and put it in a glass jar or similar (be careful, i dont want a burns victim on my concience lol), turn it over and see if you get anything. if you do, look to the injectors for a problem.
take off your air filter and see if there is a slight vacuum when cranking.
compression is the last thing, not very likely seeing as you havnt taken the head off or anything.
