Ok the original problem was that the car wouldnt start. I replaced the distributor and all the components inside it, the ecm, the ignition coil, and probably a couple things im sure im forgetting to mention. Anyway I later discovered that the fuel pump would not come on when I turned the key, so my first thought was the relay, but it checked out fine. So I ran a jumper wire from the battery to the ecm diagnostic port under the dash to energize the fuel pump that way, and it came on. I then tried to start the engine while energizing the fuel pump manually, no go. Im getting perfect fuel pressure and a perfect spark, so then I realize the injectors arent working either. Thats when you told me to do the noid light test, which I did (with all the connectors unplugged at once) to discover theres no power to the injectors at all. The car WILL run when I spray starting fluid into the throttle body, but only until it burns that up, so about three seconds. So in a nutshell, no fuel pump when the key is turned, and no injectors either, which sounds to me like the entire fuel system isnt working. And now here we are. And keep in mind this is not a neglected vehicle, ive always taken excellent care of everything, im the type that hates dirt and dust under my hood, the car has always ran perfect. Would a faulty ignition switch cause any of this maybe? Or what about a bad oil pressure sending unit?
