- 15 to 30 minutes of cranking and it will start and run fine
- cylinders will flood out on intial cranking
- fuel pressure is good
-spark is great
- timinmg belt, tension are new and right on
- noticed welding done to the exuast manifold, believe the ECU might be fried because of this.

Clean ground wire on where it connects to engine block and clean connections on battery. Make sure battery is charged. If battery is low, jump battery with another vehicle and see if it cranks at normal speed and starts.
Start by making sure you have a good battery, or a good charge on the battery. locate the starter signal wire on the starter , usually the small wire, connect your test light. have a friend turn the key and see if test light lights up. if so, your starters bad, replace the starter and you should be good to go.
If you can jump and start the car then the starter is good.
I had a similar situation where the battery tester showed 13V and green/good LED but I could not start my car. After many tests, I found out that the battery had good Voltage (13V) but not enough Amperage to crank the starter.
I replaced the battery and the car started like a champ!.
- clue to see if you need to replace the battery is if you have used it for
about 3 years or more.
- Dead battery happens a lot more often than bad alternator.
