Bli22 Posted June 25, 2015 Share Posted June 25, 2015 1990 Coupe.I have 2 problems that may or may not be related.When we were changing the harmonic balancer, we had to take off the timing chain cover to get the sheared pin out. Ever since, the car runs horribly. It feels labored and has to run some pretty high RPM to just get moving. Now it won't even start. Here are the facts . . .It smells like it's getting gas. After turning it over for 4 or 5 minutes you can smell it.I hear the fuel pump running.I confirmed that each of the wires coming off the distributer are sparking.I tried changing the ECM.I put in a new battery and new spark plugs.The oil pressure sensor reads empty or one dot. Although that maybe normal before it starts?There's a minor sound coming from behind the glove box. 3 quick, short sounds. Could be nothing.Here's what the engine sounds like. Note how it kinda wants to start at the end . . . Secondly, I can't get to the self diagnostic screen. Normally that's some pretty good help. When I hold down the buttons, it just flashes every few seconds. It won't go into diagnostic mode. See here . . . I appreciate any feedback. This engine was silky smooth until we messed with the balancer. I'd love to get it fixed! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
