    i got my DPFI to MPFI swap done on my D16A6 in my '89 civic hatch (DX) and it started up, and ran like a champ!

    i turned it off to put come coolant in it, and when i went to start it again, wouldt start. it cranks, but just wont start

    i have spark, and i have gas, but it wont start. it tries to however. so im thinking timing. i got a timing light, bout to go check that.

    any ideas?

    got this all checked out.. timing was fine, everything was fine.. but i had a coolant line on a vacuum nipple (big oops) the engine was flooded with coolant!

    i ran it all out, fixed the hoses, and all was well.
    till i snapped a rod the other day lol.
