Help Please. Cant start
Need your advice and guidance. Due to work, my 146 1.7 boxer has been idle for two years. Finally i am back in Malaysia and now trying to bring it to its best condition. So here is what i did:
Changed the timing belt, timing bearing and the oil seal, new engine and gear box oil, new battery, water pump, break pads front and back, back brake disc, new oil filter and air filter, cleaned my idle valve with carb cleaner, serviced my radiator, new battery, drained the old petrol and put in 20 liters of new petrol and changed the fuel filter as well.
Having done all this, the car wouldnt start. after looking around, then i found the fuel pump was not working. changed it and still wont start. then i checked all the relays in the black box, cleaned it, checked for loose contacts, took off the battery terminal, tied the leads and then put them back and still it wouldnt start.
so i went back to the fuel system, took off the injectors to check if there is fuel coming in. there was fuel coming through the injectors.
all plugs are firing. then i check if there is compression, all had compression, didnt do it electronically, just took off the plugs and stick in a wood and crank the engine and then remove the wood piece and if there is a loud pop then there is compression ( i maybe be wrong with this method).
Anyway i am lost now on whats the problem. tried starting with master key. no problems with the code, it goes off after about 2 seconds.
GUys do you have any other suggestions? HELP ME PLEASE. Anyway I am from Malaysia. Appreciate all your help and suggestions.
