8 out of 10 times for me with a car that wont start its a fuel problem. Best way to test for me is to dump a little start fluid on the throttle or intake and if it starts then dies out. I knw its not getting fuel.

Ok so someone help me out here. Everybody says you need to touch the plugs to metal(ground) when testing if they have spark. Plugs are designed to arc by themselves. I've watched my dirt bike's plug spark by itself without touching metal, so I think this is something people have been told for so long they just accept it

If you did a new fuel system, why did end up having to fix the fuel system, and it looked pretty old? Not trying to bust your balls too much. Don’t bullshit a bullshitter.

I once bought a mint coupe style s13 with an HKS turbo kit, fully built RB25 red top and about 9k in upgrades for 800 bucks because the owner couldn't get it started for years. $15 ignition coil on ebay and it fired first try, drove it home.

Love the videos Zack! Though between that low compression and the smoke at the tail pipe, I think you have some refreshing to do internally. Compression should be around 150psi or higher I believe

If you confirmed that you have air, fuel, spark, and combustion; then check your crank shaft position sensor and camshaft position sensors.

I have, and only ever had, two passions in my life since I was 8 years old: Computer Programming and Cars. I had to move a few years ago, so I don't have any friends anymore. I would love to be able to get a project car and work on it, but I'm afraid because it will be only me. I have no knowledge to fall back on other than what I have learned online. I purchased a 240sx when I was 17 for my first car, but sadly, I was screwed over. It was the funnest I've ever had. I tend to overthink things, so maybe I'm making it seem more scary than it is. What concerns me most is the suspension - also things that require welding and such... like subframe connectors.

It also needs timing to run lol, fuel won’t do much for you if it’s coming and leaving before the spark
