Not Firing

Recommended Posts

Happy to swap you a 1.6 for a 1.9 ECU if you've numerous of them spare? I seem to have ended up with several 1.6 spares when I only have 1.9 powered cars...

Are theses year/part number specific? Wouldn't hurt to have a spare if you wanna sell another? (1.6)

They're all the same - Bosch 0280000340. Let me double check how many I've got spare, but assuming that I've got another surplus, yes I'm happy to sell you one.

Finally got back to it. With new ECU on nothing has changed. It back fires no matter which way we turn distributor. Plugs arent wet now so injectors must be ok, good spark.

 

 

Fuel pump is staying on but this shouldnt stop it from firing properly, should it?

 

Really out of ideas and enthusiasm, anyone fancy a trip down to Cornwall with spanners and stay in a NT cottage? :wacko:

If it's backfiring, you sure the HT leads are in the right order and you've not done something silly like putting the cap on 180 degrees out?

Not sure on the full history but I would say go back to basics now.

 

Check the cam timing by pinning the crank and cam pulleys and ensure the pins align.

 

Then compression test it, see what the results are.

 

At least you can then prove basic engine condition and move onto the management stuff.

Thanks for the replies. I did a compression test too yesterday and all is good there. I will do the cam timing.

 

we have tried the leads in every conceivable configuration and distributor too.

 

Wish id kept the Trabant!!!!

If the comp test is good then the timing "should" be ok, but its worth checking, as if the cam is in the wrong spot then the dizzy will also be wrong as its cam driven.

Couple of other ideas

 

There is a tapped hole on the side of the inlet manifold that the oil fill tower bolts to. This is a through hole into the inlet manifold. If there is no bolt fitted then there is a large air leak in that position which can cause issues.

 

Another one, in the gasket sets there is usually a carb inlet gasket, this sits across the injector pocket and blocks the spray, worth checking the correct injection inlet gasket has been fitted, and so the injectors are not firing straight at a bit of gasket material.
