Is the fuel pressure within the manufacturer's specs? Are you getting a good hot spark to the plugs?

Iam not sure as to the actual fuel pressure all I know is I released the fuel and it went everywhere till it stopped and I didiit agatin to be sure the fuel pump ewas working, and as to the spark I was told that checking for spark with out a special tester would destroy the ign coils

Go to our homepage and follow the directions for checking spark. As long as the plug is grounded, it won't hurt the coil.
