  • 8 out of 10 times for me with a car that wont start its a fuel problem. Best way to test for me is to dump a little start fluid on the throttle or intake and if it starts then dies out. I knw its not getting fuel.

  • Ok so someone help me out here. Everybody says you need to touch the plugs to metal(ground) when testing if they have spark. Plugs are designed to arc by themselves. I've watched my dirt bike's plug spark by itself without touching metal, so I think this is something people have been told for so long they just accept it

  • I once bought a mint coupe style s13 with an HKS turbo kit, fully built RB25 red top and about 9k in upgrades for 800 bucks because the owner couldn't get it started for years. $15 ignition coil on ebay and it fired first try, drove it home.

  • I have, and only ever had, two passions in my life since I was 8 years old: Computer Programming and Cars. I had to move a few years ago, so I don't have any friends anymore. I would love to be able to get a project car and work on it, but I'm afraid because it will be only me. I have no knowledge to fall back on other than what I have learned online. I purchased a 240sx when I was 17 for my first car, but sadly, I was screwed over. It was the funnest I've ever had. I tend to overthink things, so maybe I'm making it seem more scary than it is. What concerns me most is the suspension - also things that require welding and such... like subframe connectors.
