yes i got a spark tester and each plug wire had spark
i also tested all the injectors and one tested bad so i replaced it with a good one but still no start
well i bought a adjustable fuel pressure regulator but could figure why it wasnt reading any pressure and my tps sensor reads 4.4 volts is that bad?
i tried doing a compression test but the way the book explained didnt work so well because it told me to take every spark plug out and gas just went everywhere are you only suppode to take one spark plug out?
Yes the adjustable one is on the car now
ow well it didnt say anything like that but that makes sense wow i cant believe i didnt think of that and what else do you think it could be if that comes out good?
okay i bought a new one just in case but i would think the pressure would be good if its dumping into the motor or does it do that even if its bad?
and is gas suppose to go into the oil pan?
sry i ment if it acting like that does gas usually end up in the oil pan
okay and if the compression test comes out bad what does that mean?
yeah i actually replaced all the injectors with ones that tested out good and put new seals and stuff on them and a rod or a valve that could be a possibility because it was burning through some oil like probably a quart a week is that pretty bad?
it has about 107,000 and no it has not been rebuilt and it has a new blow off valve and i also installed a front mount intercooler
and its burning externally
well i mean i kept the boost pressure always at 12 psi never higher and it ran better when i put that front mount on and the aftermarket blow off valve was already put on there when i bought the car i just replaced it with a new one and there was also a safc II in the car when i bought it
sry i ment internally out the exhaust
yeah that was my guess too but wasnt using oil that bad yet but i bet it was only time before it would and im guessing i got it right at that time and no raw oil is coming out so you think the motor it sill good and should try the compression test ? and i mean the only aftermarket thing i did was the front mount and kept the boost pressure at stock
okay thanks for the advice
alright and im shure ill have more questions and no im actually in cold ass northern Indiana lol
