Default Bought a non-running Red Miata today!!!!!!

I guess I found a home for the ebay kit! Me and my brother bought a non-running red 1992 Miata. SWEEET!!!!! The guy said it has spark but no fuel. He replaced the fuel pump and filter. But no gas........ He said he thought it was a cam sensor.
This bad dude has rims, cruise control, power window and locks. My brother is lucky!
If he doesn't keep it Im swipping the cruise and rims. LOL!!!!!

jump FP and GND. try again.


probably just the AFM or fuel pump relay, maybe a fuse, or maybe the pump itself. not much will cause no fuel.

I'll try to get som pics. It needs a paint job and a top. The guy bought some salvage yard parts so they may of been bad too. But he bought a fuel pump, afm, and a ECU. I guess I could always plug and pull from my running miata.Thanks for the advice.

I picked it up out of Fort Worth a little off I-30. He only came off $100. Unless it was a repost on Craigslist. We were the first to show. We got there within one hr of posting.
Did the car you looked at need a fender? It came included with the car though. And it has rims simular to some porsche rims. I personally would of bought a different style. But hey included in total price, They look good.....
Cheap is a virtue!

rim = wheel
simular = similar

BTW, we have a deal set up with the Lotus club to run ECR next month. Hopefully my car will be ready. Its only $170 I believe if you're interested.

Sounds cool if I can get the car together.
I need to get a roll bar too.
That is the next on the list after fuel management. Lol
