Running out of patience trying to get my fresh 2.9 build started.... engine will not start/run and keeps flooding badly. At this point I've checked and tried just about everything. Each time I go to start the engine, it tries to fire and then stalls out. When I pull the plugs they're dripping and visible puddles can be seen on the top of each piston.
So far I've check the following:
- pulled the VC and verified engine timing is still bang on.
- checked spark strength on each coil.
- checked connections and measured resistance of the CTS, injectors, cam senosr, MAF, ISV (measured with a DMM at the ECU connector).
- removed the fuel rail and checked the spray pattern of each injector (going to recheck with actual fuel pressure).
New parts include plugs, wires, all coolant temp switches/sensors, 25L of fresh fuel in the tank, and a new IAT sensor. The engine will run briefly on starter fluid with the fuel pump relay out and the lines pinched.... any input is greatly appreciated.
