R33 S2 won’t start but cranks

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

recently fitted a new engine into a shell. I purchased the shell and have never heard a motor run in it so not sure if a wiring issue or what, could be a big fan of worms! 😬The motor cranks but won’t start. Not running on any cyl. I have checked for fuel and lines are correct (see pic) Also what should the tomei fpr be set to? Has standard injectors fitted. Is there a way I can bypass the ecu or link to ground the injectors? Also should the apexi ecu have a bracket to be grounded or does it ground through one of the pin outs?

 

Have turned the ignition on and removed CAS and spun by hand. Can hear the injectors clicking and have spark from all coils. Also it has an apexi power fc fitted so is there a way of testing that this is working? Also so have the afm connected and was reading about 400mV or there abouts.

Not sure if it’s an immobiliser related issue either, pulling my hair out just trying to get this motor to start! Any help is much appreciated!

Take a photo of the "sensor/sw" page on the hand controller if you have one.

Did you reset the power fc before you put it in? Might have a tune for a completely different setup

I haven’t reset that, is that as simple as a battery disconnect?

The motor has the same bolt ons as the previous one fitted so assuming all should be ok

First is current one on car which was from the running motor (previous)

 

Second pic is from the current motor I’ve fitted but I removed it because it was a bit tight the bearing and when you spin it by hand it’s a little notchy.

Also reset the apexi, went to etc then initialize and confirmed a reset.

 

If the boost solenoid isn’t connected will this affect the starting of the car?

Shouldn't.

Actually I recall it does, disable it on the hand controller

That's just weird.

Just to be clear....the FPR is installed in the return line from the rail to the tank....yes?

Is it running the same AFM as the last car the Power FC was fitted to? Same injectors?

Have you had a read of PaulR33's Power Fc FAQ?

Im betting if you have fuel and spark then its probably a setting not quite right

Are you getting spark to the spark plugs? Perhaps do the old screw driver into coil and cam cover trick.

When you turn the CAS or crank the car it should spark.

Also take out your spark plugs and see if they're all fouled and cooked.
