Hi juiceman1342,

Based on your info, either the sparks are too weak, (bad ignition coil), compression is bad or the injectors are not working.

Hi juiceman1342,

Since the engine started when you squirt fuel into the intake then it should either be the injectors or fuel pump/pressure.

Check for power supply to injectors. To test if injectors are shorted or have open circuit, you need to test the resistance across the 2 pins.

To check if the injectors are working, turn ignition switch to ON and use a grounded test lamp to probe the wire connector on the wire that has no power supply. If it clicks, the injector is working.

Hi juiceman1342,

So it is a fuel problem?

To check injectors you need to test the resistance across the terminals first.

Check for power supply to the socket and you cn test the injectors by applying current intermittently to check if it clicks.
