Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Was the new computer programmed, if not that can be to blame. Verify with the key on the injectors are powered on the pink wire. Verify good signal from the optical distributor is getting to the computer. No injector pulse normally means bad distributor or PCM.
