This is a friends car. Now stuck in my backyard! HELP!
91 Tempo GL 113,000 miles with a 2.3 litre motor.
My buddys wife drove the car approximately 5 or 6 miles when it just stalled out and wouldnt start. She called her husband, He arrived about 20 minutes to a half hour later. Got in the car, It started right up. He drove it another half to three quarters of a mile and it stalled out again. It hasn't started since. Its been sitting in my backyard for 2 weeks now and none can figure it out. They have changed out the coil pack and also something (Electrical)that is attached to the bottom(under side) of the distributor. Due to no spark. (I'm old school and am not not familiar with new car components.) They have a manual and have run numerous tests. Also when you turn on the key but not in the crank position all the idiot lights do light up. Which is suppose to indicate that the computer is still functional. We don't have anything to check codes with. Please Help.
Cleaned throughly both the leads and the ground as well as the Battery terminals and connectors.
We have fuel flow thru the filter, Nothing is makeing it to the plugs. (Dry as a Bone) and still no spark! Are these 2 related? Could one thing solve both problems? All so there is pressure in the fuel rail. Checked it by depressing the Schrader valve( Like a tire valve) on top of 1 of the injectors and fuel sprayed out. Also the fuel shutoff in the trunk rattles. Like something is loose inside. Is this normal? Or will the fuel shut-off also shut off the spark? Does this mean anything? Does it help?
have the same problem?
