Question about 1988 Mazda RX-7
I was wondering if anyone could help me revive my 88 Rx7. I bought it after six months of sitting and it wasn't running I told the previous owner to get it running so I could test it so he replaced the fuel pump and it ran. I brought it home and was showing my friend so I rev'd it a bit and shut it off, did it once again 2 hours later, another 2 hours I tried to start it and bring it into my garage and it wouldn't start It was out of gas. I filled it back up and now it wont start, at first I thought It could be flooded so I pulled the EGI Fuse out and cranked it a few times (Nothing), I then tried to take the Spark plugs out and the EGI Fuse out and crank it for a few times (Couldn't see and vapors but did smell the gas), then I tried to take the upper spark plugs out and put a dab of Transmission fluid in to help with compression (Nothing). I checked to see if I had spark which I do, and to see if my fuel pressure was good and it is. I checked my Injectors with a Noid light and it didn't light up (Only checked one). What could be wrong? My injectors/the computer not telling the injectors to work (Keep it mind they were working before I ran out of gas), my Fuel Pump (Could I have sucked some **** from the bottom of my tank up), My fuel filter, or? I also sprayed some gas into my intake and it fired for a second.

I would check the all relays. I would check the vehicles main computer. Sound to me the engine ignitoin system was completely replaced.
The altenator should be putting out correct voltage? The battery must be holding the charge because you are able to re start the car.
I think a relay , altenator or computer is getting to hot internally and shutting down.

You probably have a bad ecm. These engines used the same ecm that the injected b2200 used and they had a lot of problems with capacitors that leaked and damaged the etching on the ecm's circuit board. If you do indeed have 12V on one side of the injectors and no pulsing ground from the ecm, then the problem either in the ecm or the wiring between the ecm and the injectors. When you say good ecm, have you tried a known good one?
If you're really good at desoldering and repairing pc boards, you can fix it yourself, all you'll need is a 47uF capacitor. Or you can send it out.

run fault codes as there is a problem sensor in the system. volts at the injector is suspect as the voltage will vary with the fuel requirement.

Testimonial: "It's not throwing any codes. I was just sitting at idle and the car stalled. It didn't give me any indication at all that something was wrong. I tried to restart it and it just keeps cranking and cranking."
