    Well, cam sensor controls fuel and the crank sensor controls spark. grab an old spark plug, plug it into one of the spark plug wires, hold it to the block and see if it sparks while cranking. Almost has to be spark or fuel.

      Turned out to be the crankshaft pulley. Bolt had loosened up and the key broke in half. No real damage, thankfully.

      During all of the attempts at diag before we checked mechanicals (duh), we pulled out an injector from the fuel rail. The o ring of course tore, so I removed them all to replace them. Iíve now torn two sets trying to get them back in. For the life of me I canít manage to get them back in without tearing the o rings! Any tricks? Theyíre extremely difficult to push into the rail. I tried lining them up and bolting the rail to the head, and Iíve tried using a socket over the injector and tapping it in with a mallet. I canít get them to press in by hand.

        If they are the right ones, take a little grease and wipe a fine film on the O-Ring so it will slide in.

          I failed to mention, but did use silicone lube on them at the recommendation of a mechanic friend. Maybe itís just the parts store o rings being a tad off.
