About to trash my car!!!!

3 Months already and my car still aint starting.. I got new spark plugs because there was no spark.. then fuel was the problem so i brought a new fuel pump and filter, and cleaned out every fuel injector and still nothing.. even changed the main EFI relay and still nothing. I also got the timing right... my CEL doesnt even come on when i put the ignition to key on.

Anybody knows what else i should try doing before i trash it???

I'm sure there's another Bronx member who could come out and take a look. Unless the rest of the car's rotten, there's no reason to scrap it yet

I put ignition to key on and the fuel pump doesn't turn on.. one time i touched the wire to the fuel injector (1) and i heard like a spark (like it made connection) and then i heard fuel flowing, then i was able to start it and drive for like 10 minutes till it turned off and left me 10 minutes away from my house lol... but that was like a month ago....

the CEL doesnt come on wen the ignition is on key on.. isnt it suppose to for like 2 sec.?

The engine is a swap, i didnt do it though, but the engine was running fine when i first got it... it just now 3 months ago started messing up.... im going to get my ECU rebuilt monday.. i have no idea wat an immobilizer is... i tested spark and i clean out all 4 injectors

Re: About to trash my car!!!!

test for fuel pressure, and fuel injector pulse(noide lights). If fuel pump isn't turning on check for power at the pump when key is on. If your not getting 12v at the fuel pump when key is turned on then there is the problem.

Yes, the Check Engine Light should be on when you turn the key on, for 2-5 seconds or so. If the light is not on either the bulb is burnt out, or the ECM isn't getting a signal. Check Ignition fuses, ECM fuses, grounds?
