My timing belt had snapped, breaking one of the rocker arms. We replaced it, put on a new head gasket and thermal shields. Timed the belts, reassembled the water pump, carburetor, radiator, air filter, and hooked all the lines up and tried to start the car. It turns over, but it wont fire. The injectors are ticking. We replaced the fuel relay, check the fuel pressure (44PSI)but there is still no gas getting to the spark plugs. We cleaned the carburetor, still didn't work. We took the tube off the carburetor and sprayed the start spray in there and it still didn't start. We have now taken the manifold off? The silver thing that looks like bent metal tubes, we tried to see if we could smell any gas from where the injectors supply to the spark plugs and I could not. We will be checking the rectangular tube that supplies the fuel to the injectors to see if there is blockage tomorrow, but does anyone know what else it could be? My husband is getting a little flustered. Everyone keeps telling him he did the repair correctly. Does the 89 have an anti theft mechanism that may be stopping us from starting the car? Oh, It has been off the road for 4 months now, so could the fuel be bad? Please help!
have the same problem?
