OK, I have a 96 Sportrak ELXi 1.6i. 4000 miles in the last month no problems - gave it an oil change 2000 miles in. However - last week I left the car at home and my wife yoused it. Last Friday I tried to start it and it wouldn't start.
engine cranked but no bite - strong smell of petrol.
checked spark - ok
fuel - ok
timing - ok
removed air unit still wouldn't start.
I reckoned that the issue was the strength of the spark - strong at coil so have today replaced dizzy cap, rotor arm and leads -
this time she started after a while but runs horribly - lumpy stalls when revs are dropped and lupms along at low revs.
I suspect I have connected the HT leads wrongly - and a cylinder is misfiring (not firing)
can anyone let me know the firig sequence and which plug goes to which dizzy point?
