OK guys, so I am past the point of making myself look like an idiot, and
throwing myself at the mercy and good will of all the present pro mechanics
here. I am a hopeless DIY'er, damn the consequences or the cost (doh!).
In an attempt to get this car back on the road again, I have taken the
advice of dsi and made sure that both fuel pumps are functioning. I have
pulled the throttle body, removed and checked; fuel lines running from the
tank to the throttle body, removed the fuel filter* and both the fuel pumps
(in tank and chassis mounted), removed the gas tank (cleaned/checked),
replaced/checked the fuel pump relay/grounds. I also popped the spark plugs
and inspected visually; I noticed the distinct smell of unburned gas, which
leads me to believe no spark to plugs; as I am a novice (or less than
novice) mechanic, how would I check to see if plugs have spark?
After I removed all the vaccum lines (I did my best to mark these with
colored tape, but with all the gas/grease...) I'm not too sure I did this
correctly. Is there any resource on line that would explain/graphically
depic the correct vaccum line attachment?
*if, just hypothetically, I accidentally reversed the fuel filter
connects(connected the out fuel line to the port marked "in" and so on...)
what affect, if any, would this have?
I greatly appreciate any advice/help from anyone who can help!
THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!
