I was working on my car and now it wont start.. maybe someone can come help me troubleshoot?? Lol

I seem to not be getting fuel, but I am getting spark. I have no CEL when the key is on, but I think that's a separate issue, seeing as I still have spark.

Looking at wiring diagrams, it seems the only place where all six injectors could be affected is +B. I have power at the check connector, and the body harness to engine harness plug (engine side of firewall, not by ECU, haven't checked that), but I haven't checked for 12 volts at the fuel injector resistor. Something is telling me that somehow I'm not getting 12 volts there. Anywhere else and it could only affect 2 injectors, unless all of my injector wiring fubard all at once....

After 3:21, I'll be running over to the shop and checking over wiring / fuel injector resistor. Wish me luck!

Well.. I have 12 volts to the fuel injector resistor. I was driving home and it cut out... Threw my test light on it and yup.. voltage.

Now I did notice something odd. The CEL went out when the engine died. I cranked it and no CEL. Then very very faintly it started glowing. Could it be a bad ground causing all these weird issues?

I swear.. I checked the intake grounds about 6 times.. I looked at them for one final time and noticed I could rotate them. Busted out a 12mm, tightened the bolts and it fired right up. Woops.

There's a couple of us here in Omaha.
I have an '89 white package turbo, somewhat BPU. It's decently fast, but its damn clean.
A friend of mine has a '91 turbo, also white. His is quite a bit faster, you might've seen him at ICC or down at MAM later that night.
I've seen a pre89 blue N/A around town, never met them.
There's an anthracite mkIV around here, If i remember correctly its N/A and auto, but I love the color and cleanliness of it.
I met a guy down at U-pull-it who said he had a black mkiii. Didnt speak to him long and didnt see the car, but that just means there's another one around here.
There was a red mkIV around here, built to hell. Saw that at the beginning of last summer, havent seen it since.
I remember a maroon mkiii, i believe pre89. Paint was a little faded, but i know the thing was built. 7m from hell. Pretty sure I heard he sold it, but I have no idea. So many rumors these days.
There's a few mkIV's at Sublime Speed Technology. Not sure if they're customer cars, or personal projects for them.
And finally, from what I can remember, there's a black mkIV that rolls with 1320video. Never seen it in person since I haven't been able to make it to too many cruises this season, but I hear its built pretty well.
Right now, that's all I can think of. Surprisingly, there's quite a few supras rolling around this place. It seems like wherever I go with my car, I hear stories about "I used to have one of these things, I loved it!" or, "a buddy of mine had one of these cars a while ago." Even quite a few of the "I have a mkiii just like this sitting at home. I've been building the engine for a while but I should be getting it up and running soon!"
Looking around on these forums, im not surprised at the amount of those stories Ive heard, though.
Anyways, I'll be looking for you around town! Glad to see theres more than a few actually running mkiiis around here.

I saw this car at icc last year. Could never catch up with the owner. We ended up bringing 3 supras last year. Hopefully 4 or 5 this year.

I'm in the Omaha area. Haven't been on this site in months as ive been working on other projects. I am trying to get my car up and running again though (of course that seems to be what all supra owners say).

Crank that bitch down Matt!

We could take that hard line, shorten it and reflare it, and run an adapter to a stainless AN line to the trans.
Were throwing it on the lift tomorrow night and trying again. Hopefully will get boost control wired up tomorrow night. If I get my trans cooler line fixed I'm going to order a shift kit Friday. Hopefully have it in for next weekend and it'll be time for real power.

Were closing on our house July 15th so its going to be a very busy month. I should have the car most of the way done for ICC. Planning on trailering it since I have no overdrive.

Will do! Kinda thinking we should get a group together before then and meet up. My cars on the road now and I got some lap top time in last night. Drives pretty well around town a/r's are great. Just sucks not having overdrive. I don't no if it would make it to omaha easily. I'm going to end up trailering for icc.

I didn't make it to the actually show. Went down the night before and participated in the mini cash days again. Car started leaking oil from the feed line pretty bad Sat so we loaded the trailer up and went home. Sounds like it was a great showing though.

I wish I was slightly more prepared. I had to sit on the foot brake for along time to make decent boost on the line. I've got a nitrous kit on the car now so I don't have to sit on the break. They ended up arm dropping while I was at 3psi I needed to be up more around 8. When I finally got into power I was pulling on the monte just not quite enough.

Haha, if I would have raced anyone, it wouldn't have even been any competition. I'm probably putting down 200 horsepower. 0-60 in 8 seconds? Hell yea!

Yea I missed it this year too as I was down in TX. All though I did see a white MK# supra with NE plates at a car show the following weekend off of 84th street. I wanted to talk to the owner but never saw anyone around the car.

The 1320video show on 84th and I at that hotrod shop? That was my car. Haha I was walking around pretty much the whole time, and we left a little early. I hadn't even planned on entering the car show.. but somebody convinced me.
