When was the last time the car ran?

It may have fuel in the lines, but is there fuel pressure? Can you hear the fuel pump? Are the injectors spraying? Are the spark plug wires in the correct order?

there is fuel pressure, the fuel pump is working, and the spark plugs are in the correct order, but i do not know if the injectors are spraying but is there a electronic device that tells the injectors to open to let fuel into the cylinder

don't be dum like me and switch the fuel lines around.... i took me three weeks to figure that one out.... switched them back after i found the bonehead mistake and it fired right up

did he sask is there an electronic device that tells the injectors when to spray? ok i just hope hes had carbs all his life yikes

and yes... there is, its called an Electronic Control Unit but usually is not the problem unless you have some electrical shorts or crap like that
