when you crank the engine turn the ignition to on and hold the pedal to the floor to shut off fuel and have someone mist it with starting fluid to see if it fires up. the engine may have be flooded rotary engines flood very easily.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.

IT NOT FLOODED,I KNOW HOW UNFLOODED, WHEN PUT THE IGNITION SWITCH ON I LISTEN IGNITION RELAY MAKE NOISE CLIP CLIP,ALL TIME .

Expert:  mike switzer replied 6 months ago.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!It sounds as if you have an engine controller issue, either an internal failure or a poor power or ground feed to it. The relay clicking and tach jumping along with a no start condition are indicates that the PCM is just partially waking up.Do you have a scan tool?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.

YES I HAVE SCAN TOOL,

Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 6 months ago.
The PCM won't communicate, correct?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
