Default 91 Stealth SOHC wont start

So far I have put a new ECU, new distributor, MAF sensor and it wont start.

This stealth has the single coil and distributor not a coil pack.

It has no spark - out of the coil it shows 12 volts but it goes into distributor and dissapears. I though coils should put out alot more volts but I have been told it is correct.

I am guess now its either a relay (I cant hear injectors clicking either) or the cam position sensor or a coil.

Please help - it is sooo frustrating and I cant afford to take it to the stealership.

I dont know where relays or cam position sensor are located either to clean wires and check the part. If you could tell me what and where it would be GREATLY appreciated.

http://www.stealth316.com/0-frames.htm have some technical info that might help you.
Check all the connections at the distributer and make sure everything plugged in correctly. As far as cam position sensor if nobody answers by the time i'm back at my apartment i will look up in my manual.

All connects are good at the distributor - everything plugged in correctly. I should add this...The problem started after I unplugged the MAF sensor while it was running and shortly after plugged it back in while it was still running. Over the next couple days it got harder and harder to start until it decided to stall while running and never started again. I have added the parts |I listed in post 1 since that time.

Yes, I tried another MAF - I purchased it on ebay and never made any difference.

you pointed out that you cannot here the injectors clicking. Can you get a test light and poke the injector wire wile trying to start the car and see if it's geting power? If not then you can trace the wire to see where the problem is.
