    Loosen the small 10mm nut on the fuel filter. Its atop the 17mm, then turn the key on. If it sprays, youre getting fuel.

    Check the fuel injector with a test light will not tell you if you are getting fuel to them, you simply checking to make sure its getting power.

    Now, check to make sure your plugs are in teh right order.

    Should look like this.
    distributor
    3 4
    1 2

    engine
    Distributor side 4 3 2 1 Timing Belt side

    Next, check to make sure both grounds are hooked. Thermostat and the battery ground, goes to the clutch cable mounting bracket.
