Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Experts aren't employees / agents of Just Answer. We are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers. I strive to provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service, let me know what's needed from me so your pleased.

  1. Do you have a scan tool that can show the ICP pressure while cranking and perform an injector buzz test?
  2. While running does it run great with no exhaust smoke?

I do not have a scan tool that can look at the icp pressure or perform a buzz test, and when running it runs great, runs clean and good throttle response, idles smooth..... Not sure if my blue point eecr2 scanner has a module to read or perform that test

While cranking and it will not start can you backprobe each wire to the ICP sensor and tell me the voltage.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can and will do that tomorrow and give you the results
