Car started running rough one day, then losing power upon acceleration. It progressed to where it would barely run, and now won't start at all, just cranks over. Replaced fuel pump, distributor & cap (timing correct), MAF sensor, tried used PCM, new spark plugs and wires. Timing belt good and in time. Have great spark, fuel pressure & compression. Tried starter fluid with no response. Catalytic convertor is clear. Checked power and ground to injectors, even pulled fuel rail (held injectors with nyties) and watched each injector fire w/ good mist. TPS is within specs. Changed fuel in tank. All fuses are good. Ignition switch good. Throttle body and intake manifold is clear (via scope). Pulled off IAC valve no difference, engine just cranks. One interesting thing, when we pulled off fuel rail and pointed the injectors toward their holes, the car actually started and ran really rough for a short time. It will try to run with injectors out, but put them back in, no start.
have the same problem?
