Hey there, well sounds like you have your hands full. If your certain the timing is correct, I would be checking firing order, possible Idle air control valve, poss. EGR valve stuck open, but really sounds like a timing issue, or firing order issue. hope this helps point you in the direction you need, anny questions feel free to ask. Thanks again
I have rechecked the firing order of the spark plugs and they are correct. The Idle air control valve is not listed in my alldata program could it be call something
else or go by another name? You also state the EGR valve may be stuck open
any suggestions on how to get it to work again.
To check the EGR valve, you can use a small flash light and shine it in the small hole, not the vacume supply hole, the hole that bolts to the manifold. You will be able to see light out the other hole. If you havent taken the EGR off yet, you can disconnect the vacume supply line and plug the hose from the engine. Try to start. If no luck continue to take the valve off and use the flash light test. Let me know what you come up with. Good luck
Do you have any subjection were this sensor is? There is not a clear incation in the information that I have.
OK, for some reason i cant the picture for you, but its a two wire green connector on the upper coolant housing. Sould be at the front of the intake. Please let me know what you find.
