Post by southcitygroupnz »

well guys, i have the following problem, before this problem occured
i'd driven the car for about 60km at 100km per hour without any
problems, i just parked it in the shed for the night, and the next
day the car wouldn't start

diagnoses so far.

GT 2.0 turbo 1990

i have 3 month old plug packs
i installed new spark plugs last month
when i pulled the fuel line of the injector rail i had heaps of fuel
pouring out when the key was turned.

Well.....the basics are you need fuel, air, and spark in the right combinations.

Have you pulled a plug out to verify that it is truly sparking?

If it's not sparking, I'd check all your coil packs, also may want to check the cam & crank sensors.
