Post 83 olds 88

Have replaced timming chain, pick up coil, map sensor and rerouted spark plug wires according to the book. Car will not start. What am I missing to get this car started?

What was wrong before you did all this? Did you check the basics, air, fuel, fire? Leave anything disconnected when you did all this work?

Start with my "The Basics" first.

You're missing something simple. I have the 84 version of this car. A very fine automobile.

Thank you for this information, rechecked and found a deep bend in the fuel line which was a problem, Also rerouted wiring order.

Thank you for your reply. It was true I over looked something like a bend in the fuel line, also I wired the car in the opposite direction. I,m glad to have certified mechanics like yourself to help a person like me get a job like this right.

And you KNOW I have the 81'... I dont even have the "Check Engine" light hook-ups on there,beacuse the light has no outlet to it.

Ive had that ignition modulator go out. Always keep a spare one in the glove box. If no spark,then there you go.

The fuel line had a deep bend in it, also I routed the wiring wrong. rerouted the wiring. Thank you for your reply, Sometimes it pays to recheck.
