1994 Opel Astra



August, 27, 2011 AT 12:58 PM

I have an Opel Astra 160ie 1996 model. Car's been driving fine all these years and one morning turned the ignition, idled for about 2 seconds, then stalled. Tried starting her again but engine just swings. Removed injectors and gave it a thorough cleaning. Tried starting againg, just swings. Removed spark plugs and replaced with new ones and she just does the same thing. Removed spark plugs and found that all are soaked with fuel. Removed Injector power leads and car idles for about +- 2 seconds (probably because of fuel that is in the cylinders). Attached power leads and car just won't start. Checked relay (Right side foot well)Seems to be fine. 12 Volts on injector leads(Ignition on). Spark plugs are firing. Fuel and pressure in fuel rail. Timing is in. My question is. What controls the power to the injectors.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
