Customer Question

My 1992 Dodge d 150 with 318 engine won't start. I just bought it from a guy who said it was sitting for five years and needed a fuel pump. I put in a new fuel pump and am getting gas to the fuel rail but after repeated cranking it won't start and the spark plugs are dry

Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. Your saying that the engine cranks but does not start? There is plenty of fuel pressure and spark but the engine still does not start? Is that correct?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes. The truck Sat without starting for five years and the guy told me it needed a fuel pump. I put a new fuel pump in and a battery. There is gas to the fuel rail but the sparkplugs are dry so I don't think any of the injectors are working

Ok, to diagnose this concern, we need to check injector pulse. This is done with a tool called a noid light. Simply unplug the injector connector going to one of the injectors and plug this tool into the connector. It should blink as the engine is cranking over.

Here is a link to a noid light set. http://www.harborfreight.com/11-piece-noid-light-and-iac-tester-set-97959.html
