just an update on no start


Still trying to track down what was intermittent engine power loss, and is now a no start. Engine cranks fine but never fires up. I have replaced fuel filter, checked TPS, checked that fuel comes out the end of the rail, and I just got done checking DME itself for bad solder joints.

Next up I plan to check spark, check DME relay again. This is the 3rd relay that has been stuck in the car, but I guess its worth cracking it open just to make sure they werent all bad or something.

Just a note: the car sat for a month, and when I came back to it the battery was totally dead. Is this normal? Does this point to any other things I should check?
I am a newbie, what do I do to check grounds?
