Would havin the wrong type of coil cause my car to have no spark an no fuel, ive dropped a 2.0 8v in my corsa, its crankin over an im gettin all the dash lights etc but theres no spark, no fuel an no management light. Ive went over the wiring twice an it all seems ok an everything seems to be connected

any ideas?

are yous sure this would get it goin, ive the totally wrong coil for it at the moment, i.e - it not bein the coke can type. i would have thought that was the cause.

if you have no spark,no fuel and no eng management light on with the ign then it all points to faulty fuel relay as said above

Have you got the engine loom wired up to the switchable live wire? their is a black wire in the loom from the donor car that you need to put either onto the batter or to a switchable live. you can see said wire as it will appear to go to no-where next to and between the battery and where the water enters the engine at the side.

ive the black wire running into a black on the car loom. I think ive all the earths on, ive checked the wiring twice, anybody know wat all the earths are an where. ive the 2 for the fuel rail an one off the bk of the manifold for the battery. There shouldnt be a crank sensor on a 8v version, never seen one anyway.

check the ignition coil is getting 12v when ign is on

if your getting fuel then its trying to spark

it wouldnt inject fuel at all if it didnt think it could spark

i guess the coil your using simply isnt right, get the proper one for the engine
