    Did you reconnect the plug wires correctly ( the right order ) ?
  8. Test the battery with a voltmeter to see if it's dead. May need to recharge it.
  9. I had a similar problem. Even though I found no problems in my brake system and bleeding did not help solve the problem, I got improvement by re-bleeding the master cylinder. I did it while it was on the car. 1. make sure the car is adjusted by lift so the MC is level, (important!) 2. crack open a brake line connection 3. depress pedal and hold it down 4. close the brake line connection 5. check fluid level in reservoir. 6. repeat for other brake line 7. check brake pedal response. Repeat a few times if necessary. If you have 4 line connections on the MC you only need to do the two side connections because air rises. Also if your brake cylinders have the notches for turning them back in make sure the notches are aligned correctly to the brake pads.
  10. A failing fuel pump can also produce this behavior.
  11. Raise the car up and see if there is any play in the wheels by rocking the 12 and 6 o'clock positions. Movement or klunking sound will indicate worn bearings.
  12. Is the rotor turning when you crank the engine ?

    I would definitely recommend doing the simple things first. Pulling the engine essentially means a complete reseal is in order. Along with several other things while the engine is out.
