Stop drinking and learn to like riding the bus to work even though bus driver doesn't want to go where you want him to go.

That scanner code is as helpful as swervsalot... It says it's a problem with the downstream O2 sensor. Since you are not getting anything to fire on starting fluid, the problem is in the ignition side. See if you can find the firing order and how to run the spark plug wires.

THX transpeed, I understand p0420 as a cat issue but I'm on the bus... I do have wires running correctly and firing order is 18726543 1 being p/s firewall. I did replace crank sensor since I had starter off I'm keeping battery charged . Connections good harnesses intact. Any additional gifts of knowledge is appreciated.

Sorry TENSPEED!
