Hi,

This sounds like you have a communication problem between one of the sensors which send a signal to the ECM to switch the fuel injectors on.

Check your cam position sensor and the crank angle sensor these are the 2 sensors which can cause this problem.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thanks

Jason

My 1992 Acura integra 1.8L does not start. Garage changed the main fuel relay but no start so they replaced the pump. still no start. Now they're saying it's the distributor.


Since you have spark, It must not be in time. The age of the Acura warrants investigating the timing belt. The belt is supposed to be changed every 80,000 miles. Intake and exhaust valve damage can occur if not corrected. The ACURA is very dependable ,so don't let some mechanic throw your money at it

There is gas in the intake manifold of my 99 Silverado LS 1500 5.3?


Sounds like a stuck open injector to me. I think most if not all of those codes are ghosts caused by the computer trying to make sense of all that fuel. Plug the injectors in and bump the key and see if one is spurting fuel. Have a fire extinguisher ready, and aim the injectors into a bucket if you can.

It sounds like a fuel delivery issue, you may have a bad injector. this would cause too much fuel going into engine and cause the lack of power. First try adding fuel injector cleaner to your gas and get the highest octane at the pump, if that doesnt work pull the plugs and look for one that is wet or has higher carbon build up.

It sure could be. But, first...by "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.

I had a Grand Prix one time (basically the same car) that had a problem with the fuel pump harness. This harness plugs into the top of the fuel pump as you know, and into the floorboard underneath the car. Check the floorboard end for corrosion or broken wires.
