Having problems with your 1988 Ford Escort EXP ?
Iv got a '87 mk4 s2 escort rs turbo that wont start. it turns over. has a new coil,distribitor,leads and plugs and its getting fuel but just not starting.. please help! cheers
Well if you have replaced all of the ignition components and you have verified that you are getting fuel thats great? I assume you have verified it is getting spark because if you havent it could be your ignition control module or even your ecm. I would confirm you have spark. If you have spark then the vehicle should run. You said you replaced the distibutor? I am going to assume you mean the entire distributor and not just the cap and rotor? I would make sure you do not have the timing 180 degrees out since you replaced the distributor, it can happen and if so the car will never start. If you just did cap and rotor I would make sure you didn't accidentally install the rotor 180 degrees out. I had a guy that did this on his Chevy truck, poor guy just did a tune up and everything on it and it ran before he did the tune up. I took a look and realized he reversed the rotor, as soon as I turned it back it fired right up and ran great.
I have the same problem +1 more lol with the ignition on I can turn dizzy and it will reprime fuel pump im getting a spark and fuel but its not firing any [email protected] cheers
