New motor is all hooked up - tests positive for both fuel and spark but still doesn't want to fire up. At some points, you can hear some backfire and popping, but that's about it. Any ideas on what to investigate from here?
I'm thinking timing or vacuum, but as far as I know, even if both of those are slightly off, the car will still start, just run crappy.
The only thing I've managed to find online was if the plate behind the crank pulley was installed backwards, it won't start (We changed the TB/WP while the motor was out). I plan to investigate it but apart from that, I don't know what else to think. Could potentially mixing up the two ignitor wires that connect to the coilpack cause this issue?
Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Here are some videos I took:
Note that contrary to what it sounds like, the car is getting enough power. It's hooked up to an external charger. In addition, I just put in 2.5 gallons of new fuel today to ensure the tank is not empty.
Thanks everyone for your time,
