|So got it figured out... somewhat... if I unplug the tach wire coming from the coil I now have continuous spark. However I have to jump the fuel pump relay now to make the fuel pump come on. fuel pump relay issue? I'll see if I can get a new one tomorrow. now it seems as if its a fuel issue (idles but rough and when you give it gas it dies out) Unless you manually open the secondary butterfly. I'm gonna see if I can hook up a fuel pressure gauge and rule that out. checked the spray pattern on all the injectors and they look good, flooded my engine in the process, I'll have to wait until tomorrow to continue, Its not fully running but atleast I made it somewhere today! |
One thing I did to my Jetta after it sat for 4+ years was to fully drain the fuel tank via the line after the primary fuel filter, save it for the lawnmower or some jerk that wakes you up at 3am cuz he ran out of gas.
Also, check again for loose or corroded connections, make sure you look inside the little plastic connctors at where the wire makes contact with the actual spade connector, like I said, one of my coil's negative leads had one wire that was hanging on enough to not break or fall off, but only making intermittent contact, especially when shaken.
Of course, it would provide spark every first crank, then get shifted out of place and we would crank and crank and crank, no spark, no run.
Buy some DeOxIt http://www.radioshack.com/prod...04746 and spray that **** into every connection you can find LOL. I bet all you will hear is frothing and sizzling coming from your green, gunked up wires Plus in the process of shooting each individual one, you'll probably find the culprit, plus some more potential issues and nip them in the bud.
