So I drove my 87 gl turbo coupe about 43 miles to the nearest smog shop. When I got there I changed my o2 sensor and put my exhaust back on. From the stock downpipe back. And now it won't start.

It has the ea82t. Long lock has about 50k miles on it and it has all stock intake and exhaust.

I had the exhaust off so it sounds like a subaru.

Any help will be appreciated.

Have you checked the EA82 usuals?


Is the driver side timing belt still in one piece, not strippped, hasn't skipped?

Is the rotor still screwed to the distributor spindle?

Is all the ignition wiring etc. OK, hasn't been disconnected accidently, or not reconnected?

Is the fuel pump working?


More exact symptoms may help us diagnose this problem long distance.


I suspect that when you figure it out, it will be a "short between the headphones" problem.

One of the wire plugs from under the , under hood fuse box, was super loose. I also used a piece of sand paper cloth on the points in the distributor cap and she fired up. But now it idles at 1600 rpm. Which is too high to smog. Ugh
