I just bought a second g60, i figured between the one i have and this one i could get one of them running right. Anyways, this new one, the PO said it was getting harder and harder to cold start, so he bought something more reliable and let the corrado sit for 3 years. The PO didn't do any modifications at all. He kept it just as he bought it. However, someone before him put a isv reroute kit on it. i figured since this one is mostly stock it shouldn't be that hard to get running again. here's what i've done/checked since i bought it the other day.
first thing was drop the gas tank and swap it with the other one since i know the fuel and fuel pump were good
swapped plugs and plug wires
swapped fuel rail and injectors
tried a different coil
swapped distributor caps
checked the timing
weird thing about the timing, i got the dots on the cam gear lined up with the valve cover and head, and the distributor rotor points to the #1 plug wire, and #1 cylinder is at the top. when i check the flywheel the only mark on it is a white dot that is nowhere near where it should be if it was the timing mark. If it is the timing mark, how would i go about getting it to where it's supposed to be without screwing up all the other timing marks?
she wants to start so bad, when i turn the key she starts then dies immediately. right after i swapped the gas tanks it would start up and let me get a few revs from the gas pedal but wouldn't stay running. i plan to get a compression tester tomorrow, and maybe a brand new distributor cap and rotor cuz i'm not sure the one i swapped was really that good. any other tips or things i should check or replace for this car that sat for the last 3 years?
