Re: Car Won't Start! - Seeking Advice!

I'm glad to hear you got the car running. Thank you for posting a follow-up. I don't suppose that you replaced one part at a time to actually figure out what it took to get it started, did you?

If you plan to let it sit for long periods of time again, that would be a good time to take advantage of the trickle charger you recently purchased.

Re: Car Won't Start! - Seeking Advice!

Rod,

Well, that was the problem. Since my battery wasn't good (in order to test) it was hard to know what part/s actually were causing the issue. It could have been a combination of things and each part I replaced wasn't expensive so I figured why not? I actually plan to drive it on a regular basis because it has less mileage than my main car. It's always good to have a spare vehicle anyway so I can slowly work on the others.

IKR!

Well, there were obviously some issues at first, but after I replaced most of the major parts it's fine. I really think it boiled down to a leaking fuel injector and bad valve gasket. It was a mess inside the valve cover and all the plugs were garbage.

It was a fun little project! I'm proud of myself that I actually fixed it.
