If your using a secondary fuel source to make the engine run(such as carb cleaner or ether) then either your NOT getting fuel to the injectors or your injectors are NOT firing. You need to test for fuel pressure with a pressure gauge.

The fuel pressure is good and yes will fire right up with carb cleaner

Mike 04-15-2014 08:38 PM

What's your fuel pressure?

zhayward 04-15-2014 08:40 PM

52 psi I think I no it was with in spec

Turn power to ON and probe 1 of your fuel injectors. You should see 12v on one of the wires. Usually a pink wire on injectors.

Yes I do

A noid light would come in handy right now unless your creative with a multimeter.

You said you think it's at specs. Did you actually put a gage on it? You can have pressure but no volume. How's the fuel filter?

zhayward 04-15-2014 10:02 PM

Yes on a gage and Wat would make um not fire
