Long story but I'll try to summarize:
Stock Mistu eclipse GS (96) except for an intake and a msd coil pack.
New timing belt and water pump
new plugs and wires
new CEL light bulb
All fuses check out ok
Crank angel sensor and cam positioning sensor - OK
Ran fine all day. After parking the car and coming back about half an hour the car wouldn't start.
It cranks, doesnt sound like its spinning freely, or being bogged down.
Fuel pressure checks out ok.
No Check Engine Light at startup (dummy light when your turning the key)
No retrievable codes from on-off-on-off-on dash CEL method.
No visable damage to any wires. 12v feeds to ecu are working and reading 12v on multimeter.
Other thing to note, though may be unrealted. A day or so before the car died, I noticed the battery light flicker a couple times while driving. It went off and never came back on so I never thought anything of it. I did end up replacing the battery because the battery was dead and not taking a charge anymore, so I just accounted for the blinking battery light on the dash as a dieing battery.
I would really appreciate any tips or suggestions. Been working on this problem for over 9 months now, with no luck.
have the same problem?
