Icon8 92 Prelude won't start

After much testing it looks like the injectors don't get a signal to fuel.
I bought a 2nd Prelude that was running to test components with. I tried the other injectors and still won't start, but one of the injectors leaks. So after a day of standing the car with start but dies straight away. I've also changed the engine lume but still nothing. This is a neat car I'd hate to see it go up in flames

Re: 92 Prelude won't start

so you're sure that it is not getting fuel? did you try a fuel system pressure check? did you check if its getting spark?

Re: 92 Prelude won't start

I haven't checked the pressure, if I loosen the blead screw on the rail there is plenty of pressure. I'm going to swap somemore electrical parts tonight, if that doesn't work I'll swap the pump. I have been going threw a prelude manual just cant find the part that shows what could be blocking the injectors from fueling. I've checked the continuity of the injectors to the ecu, that's all fine.

Re: 92 Prelude won't start

i would say that maybe you have a clogged up injector but it wouldnt seem right for all of them to be clogged. has this car been sitting for a long time?

Re: 92 Prelude won't start

Tried working pump but car still won't start. Only thing left is to change the motor. The fuel smells fresh. If anyone has any thoughts as to what else I can try I'm all ears, but if you can think of it I've probably tried it. I would like to know if there is anything that I can check that would be stopping the motor from starting, like sensors.
Cheers

Re: 92 Prelude won't start

The cam timing was about 3 teeth out. Prelude runs sweet.
Thanks for the help
