Ok, So im probably going to catch some flack for posting about this as i am new here and there
are a couple posts with a similar problem but those posts dont really cater to my exact problem.


Heres the rundown!

1984 Fiero SE 2.5 4-Speed

So anyways,, I bought this car two weeks ago and am really stoked to have a fiero and get it running. I however am having some
trouble getting it running. I replaced the headgasket and fuel pump. The engine has been rebuilt with approximately 20k miles on complete fresh rebuild.

I have fuel pressure and the injector is pulsing fuel into the TB. I have used a spark tester on all four cylinders and it showed good. I seem to be
missing something though. (OBVIOUSLY) I just wanted to consult the great and powerful PFF.

Side note. I know the ignition timing is correct as i have gone through the whole procedure of TDC compression on cyl. #1
Thanks in advance! I hope someone can be of some help to me!

Run a compression test and post the results for all 4 lungs. I'm betting your valves are out of adjustment.

Thanks for the reply, but i reposted the topic in the Tech and Questions section. Got reminded that since it had sat a while the compression was probably down. So i put oil in each cylinder and she fired right up!
