ok i finally got my car to start ,, ,, and it idles perfect ..but as soon as i give it any gas .. its starts chuckleing and sputtering out ,,,,and wont rev up ,,,,,,, ,, right now i have all 3 belts removed and the intake and MAF sensor ,,,, i tried putting my hand over the throttle body and rev it up but that doesent really work either ,,,, im have 40 psi of fuel pressure to the rail .... so its deffinatly not a fuel probelm .. i just wanted to make sure it runs correct and my timings not messed up before i put it all back togehter ,,,, ive adjusted the cam sensor numerous times and ive found that theres only 1 way that it will work and actually run ,,, maybe the problem is that its not completly put together but i dont think thats it .... ????

Does it idle at a high RPM?? have you checked all of your vaccum lines??

Maybe something is unplugged, like the MAF??

If there is a problem after that, you are looking at like a balancer, a DIS module, a cam sensor, or a coil pack. Uhhhh...not in that order.

Firing order, Make sure you have it right. How old are the wires? Do you have a bad boot on a plug wire. Just some of the easy problems I have had.:eek:

Is the DIS module a Ford module or aftermarket? If its not Ford, its crap.
