I just replaced the valves in the rear head on my 2000 eclipse GT and after it was all back together it had no fire. We got a new distributor and it fixed that problem. Now we have too much gas. It keeps flooding and there is gas standing on the cylinders. Any ideas?

Do you
have the same problem?

Check the fuel injectors for sticking. Is the Check Engine Light indicating?

Just got back from the garage. We changed the fuel pressure regulator. It doesnt flood like it did, but still will not start. I have spark and fuel. And the check engine light has been on since I got it, when it was still running.

Yeah we already done that and it said the ECM. Isnt that a plug on top of the plenum? If so we already changed it.
