XT6 turns over, does not start or try
Posted 24 June 2011 - 05:09 PM
Got spark, timing, and fuel....what next?
No check engine light or codes
Fuel spraying hard, brand new fuel pump
Got spark at all 6 plugs
Timing belts are dead on
Double checked electrical connectors plugged in and hoses hooked up.
Plug wires are all to the right plugs.
New timing belts, water pump, head gaskets.
I'll probably try a can of starting fluid next - where's the best place to spray that in?
Then swap the distributor
Any other suggestions?

You should be able to administer some starting fluid in one of the pcv lines where it goes to the intake boot.
I would rule out the disty/cap if you get spark at all plugs.
maybe a weak ignition amplifier?
maybe maf related?
Try starting it with either the CTS unplugged, or the MAF unplugged and see what happens

it does not start at all - won't even attempt to fire up.
Hot syart or cold start?

maybe everything is on but the ECU. Does the code led flash or light up?

i'll check fuse 5.
i had this happen once before like 10 years ago and turned out swapping distributors fixed it...no codes, spark, fuel, everything seemed fine, disty even tested fine. that car sat for a few months as well.
i also pumped a few gallons of gas and added fresh.
weird. at least i can swap in MAF, disty...hope something like that does the trick.
