Question about Cars & Trucks
Oil light comes on after replacing fuel pump relay and distubutor . took out battery to charge, n installed it after charging
The something plug is the oil pressure switch. You can use an ohm meter to make sure the switch is bad. With the engine off you should have continuity at the switch and with the engine running the switch should be open. Hope fully your problem is as easy as installing a new switch, if this does not fix your problem you will need to hook up a mechanical gauge as see what your actual oil pressure is.

Right under the master brake cylinder, its really hard to replace it. It has 2 screws, one bolt on top and the bottom one needs to be screwed off under the car

On the back side of the drivers strut tower....big silver box with a blue relay on the side.
Please let me know what you find.

The fuel pump relays are mounted on an "L" bracket underneath the ECM. Both have something to do with the Fuel pump. Be careful not to get it confused with the horn relay it is in the same vicinity (under the dash on the drivers side).

There are a few other things taht could be causing fuel starvation. First of all, did you pull the injectors and clean out the individual filters? There are small, conical screens inside the top of each injector, and they could be clogged. Second, There could be some carbon build-up on the intake valves, which would act like a sponge for the fuel after initial start-up. A can of BG44K fuel system cleaner from NAPA will get rid of that. If it is neither of these, the fuel pressure regulator could be leaking. Other than this, the car would need to be diagnosed by a shop before action is taken. I hope this helps you!

Testimonial: "I ended up taking the car to a local shop for diagnosis. It turns out that the fuel pump is week and not supplying enough pressure to the motor. "
I will try to help you. You are correct about the starting fluid, if it has fire starting fluid should do something. So the problem must be either no fire to the plugs or the timing belt is broke.
Check to see if the plugs have spark. If they do not, then get with the Autoparts store and ask if your car needs a Ignition relay to run. Then ask if your car takes a rubber timing belt. If your car does not have a rubber timing belt try the Ignition relay. If you do have a rubber belt check behind the shield in front of the engine to see if the timing belt is broke.
The timing belt is different than the serpetine belt that drives the pulleys. Cars with rubber timing belts have both belts. Should your timing belt be broken it is not an expensive repair. But you will need to details on replacement of that part.
