First install Link ECU No start...
I have done a lot of searching as well as diagnosis and I'm ready to pull my hair out. So I have come to you guys for help and advice.
Here is a little background of the project...
I bought the drive train and turbo setup out of the Yellow submarine from Wallyman. From there I located a decent shell that had a cage, coil overs, aftermarket wheels and a couple other nicknacks but had a 1.6 with a short nose crank failure.
I replaced the engine, wired everything up and went to crank over the car for the first time. Turned the key on, engine off for a few seconds and everything lit up. Went to crank it then... Click! nothing, no lights or anything.
I looked around at the wiring and figured it had something to do with the starter. After messing with that I turned it over again and this time it cranked but wouldn't start!
DIAGNOSIS: I have fuel but no spark.
Here is what I have done so far:
12 volts at the plug for the coil
tried two different coils
"room" fuse is good
12 volts at 1a on the ecu plug
checked all related fuses, they are good
checked resistance on the 80amp fuse, that is good
Plugged in the old ecu, nothing changed
Spark plugs look good, gapped at .040
Things I haven't done:
resistance on coils
resistance on plug wires
It honestly could be something really simple that I am overlooking. Do any of you have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
