86 engine turns but won't start


Recommended Posts

Ok, I went to start it up after I drove it a week ago. Engine turns but won't start. I park on a slight slope. First, I switched the DME relay with my spare, no luck. Fuel pump fuse is good. Thought I needed more gas since I was low and on a slope. Filled up to 3/4, nothing still. So, then I was thinking fuel pump because the week I drove it, it felt a little slow responding when I gave it gas also it idled a little werid but closer to normal. Replaced fuel pump, nothing still. So, I tried my spare DME relay again, nothing. Then I got my brothers new DME relay, nothing. So, went out to get a new battery because the old one wouldn't hold its charge. Still nothing. Borrowed a good coil to see if it was that, a no go. Removed both sensors at flywheel, pretty dirty, cleaned and installed. No luck.

Any ideas?

I guess the next step would be to look at the DME harness contacts and DME unit.

Was going to check the DME but got an offer for the car and sold it. It's going back to europe...on the hunt for another.
