Hi, welcome to Justanswer.com

MFI CONTROL RELAY

When the ignition switch is on, battery power is supplied to the ECM, the injector, the mass air flow sensor, etc. When the ignition switch is turned on, current flows from the ignition switch through the current relay coil to ground.

MFI CONTROL RELAY INSPECTION

1. Check continuity of relay contacts between terminal 4 (+) and 2 (-)
2. If faulty, replace the MFI control relay. Tightening torque MFI control relay: 7 - 11 Nm (7 - 110 kg.cm, 5.2 - 8.1 lb.ft)
I would look at htis relay to be bad it controls fuel injectiosn and ignition spark.

hope this helps.______________

This did not help me. If I had the timing belt off just one tooth, would that keep it from firing? Someone her in town said it might' the fuel pump is not coming as I said before. Please help
