The car turns over fine but acting out of gas
I checked the following:
Firing order - good
Fuel pump - pumping gas when in start mode
Spark - has spark at all six plugs
I removed the fuel system relay and tried to turn over but still wouldn't start
There seems to be fuel on the plugs also? Was thinking flooding issue so I tried to floor it while turning over and still no start.
And I did have oil in the spark plug holes which I think is from a valve cover leak but I have cleaned that all out now and re-cleaned plugs. Could this affect something with the spark?
My CEL light is on but this was also on before this issue and car was still running good. I think that is related to the MAF sensor. I have been having to clean it recently also.
Would this rodent have caused a short somewhere else? I did try and turn the car over before noticing that the wires had been chewed through, could this have messed up a sensor or something else somewhere?
Do I have a bad camshaft position sensor and how would I check this? And would this affect it turning over somehow?
It has tried a couple of times to actually fire but to no avail. It almost seems like it acts better when I give it a little gas while trying to crank over.
Please help! Thank you
have the same problem?
