    i'm not sure if the bottom end turns over or not but when i try to start it, it just makes a really loud spinning noise. like it's not catching anything..

    Is your timing belt intact? If it broke the cam will not move and you wont have spark either.

    kinda hard to diagnose the noise from you just explaining it but is the starter mating with the flywheel? im not too sure what other "spinning noise" your talking about

    or our starter could not be making contact with your flywheel.

    if its just a spinning noise and not a whole engine turning over then its your starter.




    or you just dont have a flywheel in your car.

    just unplug them, disconnect the fuel line and rail then pull them out. i highly recommend changing the seals when you put the new ones in. if you dont already have a haynes manual or something of the sort get one itll explain a lot

    could possibly be a bad ECM driver... however could you have replaced one bad injector with another? were they used injectors? try moving a working injector to one of the not working ports, if it dont work, check for a short in the injector wire with an ohm meter. if that dont work haul it to a garage for a diagnostic.
