Sorry if this has been answered before couldn't find a answer for it


I have 94 Eagle Talon, 1.8 engine non Turbo.The former owner parked it thinking it was the fuel pump.Changed it out and the gas tank they were both corroded .Still didn't run so checked and found out the fuel control relay was burned out and replaced it, now I have gas in the injection railing.But it still does not run, and now I have checked out the injector relay and it was also bad and so I changed that out, still does not run. I have checked all my timing system I have spark in spark plugs, the timing is right, it still does not run. The car Cranks but the engine doesn't start. Any Ideas?

Welcome to AF.

Is there fuel getting into the motor? Does the fuel pump turn on when you try and crank the car?

Do a compression test on each cylinder. Hook up a compression tester and turn the motor over to see what the compression is on each cylinder. This test is suppose to be done at WOT and when hot but since it wont run it will be ok to do it cold.

Also pull the intake pipe off and spray some carp cleaner or some starter fluid into the intake manifold and try and crank the car. If it fires up them your not getting gas into the motor.
