This is a beater commuter car that has 197,000 miles on it. I parked it for a week to give it a full tune up and replace some gaskets that were leaking. I replaced the fuel filter but had some trouble getting the top banjo fitting off, so it sat with a loose bottom fitting for a few days while I let PB blaster sit on the top bolt. It drained all the gas. I also replaced the distributor o-ring since it was leaking bad. When I removed the cap and rotor, I noticed that the top of the coil that says do not remove was cracked bad and full of oil. So I replaced the air filter, fuel filter, plugs, wires, all fluids, engine mounts, distributor o-ring, valve cover gasket, and clened the intake manifold and IAC. At this point the car won't start because it's out of gas, but I tried a few times. After trying to turn over a few times, it started just clicking when I turned the key. I added five gallons of gas and hooked up my jump pack. No luck, all you hear is the starter clicking. Where is the fuel pressure test port to see if it's getting fuel? Should I replace the ignition coil in the distributor because it's cracked? Is it possible that the battery is too weak to even be helped by the jump pack? All lights and gauges work. I'm going to pull a wire tonight to see if it's getting spark, but where can I see if it's getting fuel? I looked for a shrader on the fule rail and couldn't find one?
have the same problem?
