Could have jumped time. Bring number 1cyclendar up to top dead center. Look at roter see if pointing at # 1 on cap .

Are the fuel injectors pulsing ? Test with test light made for testing fuel injector pulse.

Bender, timing checked out OK. Firebird, will any test light work or do I have to have the fuel injector one?


You'll need a 'noid light to check for injector pulse. Run a compression test. If all cylinders test low or zero, it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
