SOURCE: wiring diagram

why would you need a distributor on a diesel engine???
when you removed the engine, you probably left the distributor wire touching the body.

We recently changed the ecu on our vectra 1.8ls 2002 it started and ran fine for 10mins then then stopped,i think the immobilliseron all the time,how can i take immobilliser off


easy way is to join the immobiliser wires they work like a toggle switch otherwise replace distributor just be sure not to connect the imob wires to distributor. worth tracing wires to distributor should be one wire in and one coming out of distributort to immobiliser (not to coil or battery) cut and join them immobiliser is off then. Make sure you leave enough wire in case its not the problem so you can just wire back to normal.

Relaced all that and didn't check the catalitic converter. When you get codes for MAF sensor and 02 Sensors, the first place to check is vacuum leaks, if none are found then it would go right to the catalitic converter. You might want to consider another mechanic.

Check your plug wires to see if there in the right firing order and connected tightly on the cap and plugs.Also check to make sure the coil wire is tight.Also you can try changing your wires also.

1985 Ford ranger died and will not start....getting gas..have fire to the distrubutor, will turn over but not start.


You have fire to the Distributor, but do you have fire at the plugs? The 4 cylinders had an external timing belt behind a shroud. Look to see if you broke a timing belt. Or you could have a bad stator or module in the Distributor.

Replace the spark plugs and wires along with a distributor cap and rotor. Be careful to leave the old wires and plug wires connected to dist.cap, just remove dist. cap from the distributor and lay aside with plug wires on it then install rotor then new cap and proceed to replace each wire for cap and spark plug one at a time so you don't mix up the spark plug wire firing order. Cap laying to the side is used for reference purpose.

This could be a problem with plugs, wires, distributors, fuel filter or fuel injectors. Try changing the plugs and wires first, then the fuel filter. If you are changing the plugs and wires, make sue you use anti seizing compound and dielectric grease.
