There wasn't an initial issue, I just got the car and am trying to get it started. The last inspection sticker on it is from March of 2003, so its sat for quite a while. Before that it supposedly ran great. Tires of course need replaced and rotors are stuck, but for right now I am just trying to get it to fire up but so far no fuel.
Like I said, filters changed, pump working, and I got fuel all the way to the injector pump, and when I removed the valves you can watch the pistons in the injector pump working and they fill with fuel, but with the valves in place its as though the pump dosen't have enough preassure.
I'm new to how diesel pump injectors work.
