    so i swapped a d16z6 into my ef. the swap went well and was running strong for about a month. then one day i go to start it up and nothing happens. i can hear the fuel pump whining and clicking from the starter. but no fire. when i try to pop the clutch. it just stops hard like someone is ripping the e break.
    1. is my motor Fucked up

    2. do i need new ecu, distributor, starter, maybe alternator, anything eles.

    this is really weird that i cant get it started

    1. loosen the bolt at the fuel rail, make sure theres fuel spraying out.
    2. make sure the distributer is firing
    3. check all ground wires and power wires, already did? do it again.
    4. does the check engine light come on when you first turn the car on? should come on for at least a second.
    5. CEL always on? find out why.


    if the CEL dont come on for at least a sec then your ecu's not powering up.

    ok first check the timing if u used an autozone timing belt the have a tendency to slip but if the motor wont even turn over the valves might be hitting the pistons if thats the case your engines done

    yeah i think that might be the problem. but what would cause this? best way to fix? is my whole motor done or just my head and sleeve?
    do you know any places where i can get a d16z6 swap then?
