Man I'm totally over caring anymore. Your situation is your situation. If I were up the creek I'd still have plenty of mates who'd lend me a hand.

Either check off the list I gave you and report back with what you find or just give up. We cannot help you anymore than we have. If you can't diagnose the above points then there is no point in spending anymore time in this thread.

Lol man, it seems you instantly get angry when you don't instantly get the answer to your problems.

I'm pretty sure TimmyA gave you a list of things to check and you still haven't, instead you just give him a link to a car that is cranking over.

No wonder he doesn't want to help you, you're not helping him.

hallelujah... Someone who sees what I see...

So those videos fixed your problem you're now saying?

What was wrong?

I bet it's something on the list I told you to check?

Watching those videos, all it said was check spark, check fuel pressure, and the other assortment of things which cause a motor not to run... Strangely, enough looks somewhat similar to the list I just gave you actually?

Have you checked the smartlock jewel to see if it's immobilised?
Have you checked the interior light fuse?
Have you checked all the fuses for that matter?
Have you checked the main fuses/fusible links?
Have you ran diagnosis on the computer (tech docs under the the resource tab at the top)?


So which one was the culprit musky if the video answered your question?

what more do you want from me? if i have supplied the videos and links to what my car is exactly doing then why do i need to tell you if I
Have checked for Spark?
Have checked for fuel pressure?

if i have shown the video of what my car is exactly doing then i dont need to tell you this list, my dad can find a problem to carbie engines without turning it on to see what it sounds like or how it runs he opens the bonnet and he sees whats wrong ive shown the video of what its doing so by how its running and by showing you these videos i dont need to tell you the checklist cuz you could see whats going on???? you all claim that im the bad guy the rude person yet this bad guy has apologised and admitted his wrong doings, but you dont see that do you or you dont want to you guys just want the last line fine whatever, and when its fixed il be sure to let yous all know what the problem was and well see how helpful you guys have really been.

look, I'm an 18 year old kid, 1 year ago I looked at my old falcon and pointed to my rocker cover and asked my dad "Is dat duh plenum?" I've since learned a little bit about cars & engines through all the people on fordmods and my dad.

I can tell you that the reason Tim has asked you to check all those things because they could all be culprits. It's not like "oh, the engine won't start, it's just cranking over" "AH THAT'S EASY, THIS PART X NEEDS REPLACING, IT"S THE ONLY REASON WHY"

Have checked for Spark? - No spark, fuel doesn't burn.
Have checked for fuel pressure? - Fueling issues, an engine needs fuel to work
Have checked for fuel volume? - Same as above
Have checked the smartlock jewel to see if it's immobilised? As an immobiliser works, if it's on, your car won't start.
Have checked the interior light fuse? My guess is if there's a blown fuse somewhere, you won't be getting power or a spark.
Have checked all the fuses for that matter? ^
Have checked the main fuses/fusible links? ^
Have you ran diagnosis on the computer (tech docs under the the resource tab at the top)? This will probably help you hunt down the issue.

There's a lot more to electronic fuel injected cars compared to a carby engine car from the 70/80's.

Is it factory gas or aftermarket?

You said previously that the fuel pump wasn't making any noise on startup. I once had the same problem on my falcon, which had an aftermarket gas system fitted. I tried to start my car and it just turned over. The fuel pump didn't prime either, but at that time I didn't even know what the sound of the pump was anyway. I opened the bonnet and jiggled a few of the wires on the relay, tried to start the car again and it did.
