That's true for the US versions. I believe the Mexican versions were MPI.Not to my knowledge. I believe the 2.5's were all fuel injected throttle Body's. You can however replace the throttle body with a carb. I don't know all the details but you'll need a intake and distributer from a carbeurated 2.2. I'm not 100% sure about exactly which ones you'll need but I'm sure some one on here will chime in with the correct information.
Stop throwing money around! Breathe.... in. Good. Now out. In.... out. SLLOWWLLY. You need to go through this in order. 1st things 1st. Do you have spark?RE: ffstro
What kind of problems are you having? I race oval track on dirt for the past 3 years now. 2.5L with a A523 trans.
It seems to be all electrically related for some reason. Once I replace an item something else goes wrong with the car. At first, I thought I had run out of gas but was told that the fuel pump in the tank was bad and needed to be replaced so I added a inline electronic fuel pump to bypass the one in the tank. Had no fire, then I replaced the fuel filter, coil,plugs, plug wires, relay switches, and battery but still nothing. Then was told it was a starter relay so I replaced it, no fire. I'm just running out of suggestions to what it could be. I'm really thinking about adding " insurance " to my race car and letting it burn to the car but I have over $2500 in the car now and all of that would be a loss!
OK. Check fault codes first, and tell us what you get. And does it crank normally?
I have to go to work, wont be home until sometime after 8AM tomorrow. You've found a great bunch. Guru's..... they will have you straightened out in no time.Bob, you got this one, and to Rob Burns, welcome to the forum, now is a great time to actually learn how to trouble-shoot vice listen to the competition for advice.
Power to distributor, if not, backtrack, if yes, no spark means bad hall effect in the distributor, or coil, so verify your changed coil is good, but sounds like it may be the hall effect.
It might. I didn't pick up on that at first, but that is a very good point. I know the in-tank fuel pumps are expensive compared to a generic in-line pump, but I think his problem may be with the fuel pump/ASD relay.Hey guys, would his bypassing the intank fuel pump in favor of an inline one have any effect on the ASD relay? I don't know, so I'm just asking. But in all fairness, it does sound more like a hall effect problem to me too.
Just for the record, I've replaced the ASD/ fuel pump relay and have no problem getting fuel to the throttle body.It might. I didn't pick up on that at first, but that is a very good point. I know the in-tank fuel pumps are expensive compared to a generic in-line pump, but I think his problem may be with the fuel pump/ASD relay.
I really don't think it's the hall effect. I've never known one to fail so bad you couldn't at least start the engine. They usually just overheat to the point they fail. Once the hall effect cools down (about 15 min), the engine will fire right back up. At least, that's been my experience.
