Hi all, thanks for taking the time to look at this.
So this car has been giving me nightmares. It's a 90 Loyale and I can't for the life of me figure out why it won't start. The problem started after replacing the head gaskets. After re installing the engine it will not start. It seems to have a healthy spark and the injector is pulsing and injecting fuel but it won't start. I have re checked he cam and distributor timing as well the spark plug wire locations and they are fine. The compression is good. The resistance on the coil primary and secondary is good. i also swapped out the distributor. The one thing that might be strange is that there is quite a bit of fuel being injected per pulse. I'm not sure how much should be shot in in each pulse though. The first time I try to start it it sounds as if it wants its going to fire but just wont quite take off. I'm thinking it might be flooding it out but not sure if this the cause or the effect. There was a little damage to one of the wires in the engine harness, it was only the oil pressure sensor wire but i had another harness so i swapped that in with no change. I have checked all the the grounds, fuses and fusible links and there are all good. There are no codes in the engine control unit. In my checks i found there was some corrosion on the plug for the coil power transistor under the coil but it seems be working because i'm getting spark. Power to the coil is about 11 volts when cranking maybe a little less. I am dropping about a half volt from the battery to the coil. I'm getting to the point where i want to throw a engine computer at it and there only about $75 if i can pull one out of a junk yard but it's money that I'd rather save it if i'm missing something stupid.
Anyone out there have any ideas.
