    Hi,
    I wanted to know if anybody could help.
    I need to get my car running.

    The starter runs.
    The fuel pump runs.
    Thier is a spark.

    but the car doesn't fire up. What else should i check on the car, I think the car had a clifford alarm and a vtec controller on it but the owner removed this, i have had a look at the wiring and it is all connected back up.

    If anyone could tell me what else i should check?

    That's my guess. Check the distributor.

    That's great. It still doesn't change the fact that your timing on the distibutor might be off a few degrees. The spark plugs will be working, but will be firing either too early or too late to turn the engine over. I'd check that first.

    The person that i boughht it odd said that it was running, but he didn't try to start it after he removed the alarm and APEXI VAFC2. I am going to collect the APEXI VAFC2 from him today and wire it back up.
