just tried to fire up my c16xe nova but with no luck, the starter is turning the engine fine but it wont fire up.

there is a spark to the plugs
there is fuel going to the fuel rail but not into the bores

when i pour fuel into the bores the engine trys to fire up but then dies again

does anyone know what could be causing it not too work.

i dont know if the wiring or the injectors are at fault, is there a way of testing either of these.

any help or info would be brill

cheers

which two pins are you refering to, the one on the plug to the injector itself, i will check that as a last resort as it involves removing the top part of the inlet,.

not sure bout a bleed nipple, ill take a quick look. dicko said i wouldnt need to bleed the fuel system,

right ive used an tester on the multi plug that feeds the injectors and there is no power running through any of the connections.

ive also bled the system using a valve type of thing, i pushed in a small needle type thing on the end of the valve and fuel came out.

what next guys, any suggestions, test the injector wires at the ecu end maybe??
