I have changed the starter, coil, alternator, plugs and wires. I have also replaced the ignition switch and turn signal switch.
I have not changed the points, nor checked the timing, but could those two things be the problem?
I had to select the wrong year because my year wasn't available.
My car is actually an 88, the fuel injector, and fuel pump are brand new. The fuel pump is giving it gas but it will not spray and therefor the engine dies on start up. You can spray starter fluid into the carburetor and it will continue to run but the problem is the injector not spraying fuel into it. We checked the wires leading into the injector and they are delivering a signal when we turned the key but still no spray. This problem started happening after my battery died and I removed it to have it recharged since no one would give me a jump.
it is actually a 87 skylark. was running ok really hard to start but ran fine. now all of a sudden it just cranks over and wont fire but when I let off the key it back fires really loud.
