Ok, we had a nasty thunderstorm that knocked out our power Friday and have been without the Internet, so I haven't been able to pos any updates. What I have done since Friday is:
Pulled the ECU (has a Bosch remanufactured sticker on it) and pulled the panel with the relays, they were all corroded over with bluish green corrosion, cleaned up all the contacts and put it back together. The fuel pump works as it should so I would assume all relays are in workin order.
Pulled the cold start injector and cleaned it, put it in a bowl and fired the car up and it sprays and fills the bowl no problem. Now the car does have spark because it fires up on its own from time to time and always fires with starter fluid, that being said it only runs for a second. If the cold start is spraying, wouldn't you think the car would fire up all the time on its own? Even if it was for a second?
I pulled the distributor out and cleaned the trigger points, need to get the car to TDC before I completely reassemble, didn't think about it when I pulled it, will do this today.
I am also going to pull one row of injectors out connected to the fuel day and place them in a pan to see if they actually fire into the pan.
Will try and keep everyone posted, however it's kinda hard when the only Internet you have at the moment is your iPhone :P
