Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Have you verified your getting good fuel pressure, ignition spark, and injector pulse. I know you replaced or checked these parts but are they actually working?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We have spark and fuel but not positive on exact amount of fuel pressure yet
And how do you check pulse
Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Fuel pressure needs to be 31psi or more

To check injector pulse you unplug an injector. Plug up a noid light in its place. Crank the engine, the light should flash rapid of the injector is getting constant power and a pulsing ground.

The compression is barely within specs but should be enough to run.
