Kaua‘i North Shore Boi.Aloha❤️🤙💪😊
Putting this out there if it happens to anyone else. Recent history: Installed timing belt, took a few tries but got it correct and tensioned finally. First attempt, belt was flopping so much, destroyed TDC and CKP sensors, replaced with cheap ebay shizz. Wire colors are reversed for some reason. Seemed to be working. BUT, finally got My car home from a friend's house a week later, revving in park & neutral. Cleaned TB and IACV valve. While disconnecting battery, dropped ratchet on conveniently placed STARTER LIVE POSITIVE. Crackles and pops. Ratchet welded to starter, knocked off and it hit lock up solenoid (need to test), took off negative and covered the damn starter positive in rubber. Took apart starter and cleaned. G2 was loose, tightened. Then no start/fuel pump/no communication happened. Checked and cleaned fuel pump connections, grounds. 3 wires small cracks a from milimeters from connector, fixed. Checked wires for cracks to front of passenger door. Good. Checked grey wire continuity from date link connector to ecm. Good. Resoldered main relay, two soldered so gone had to use torch on soldering iron just to melt. It looked ok. Same thing. Ordered new main relay, cleaned all grounds, all connections under driver dash and fise box. Inspected, cleaned, sprayed crc wire dryer and wiped with qtips, coated perimeters of all connections with crc dielectric grease. Did the same for main fuse box, same result. Replaced main relay, same result. Cleaning passengers fuse/ multiplex box now. Forgot to mention, sometime during this, saw a broken brown/BLK wire under coolant hose towards firewall where the green clip is for the wire harnesses (before it reaches distributor), reconnected with shrink wrap/solder butt connector. Same result. I have ordered a new ECM already, only $28, off eBay, in case I friend it. Took it apart, no Burns, Nothing looks wrong. This sucks. I've done SO MUCH to this car, because it was sold to Me in shit shape by a lying chick who went to rehab a month later, and now the f'ing timing belt AKA PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE is gonna bite Me in the ass? Man, I hate gravity. If You remember My crash story (pissed at a chick, lost control speeding up a hill, 112 ft cliff, 87ft straight vertical, 9 shattered ribs, collapsed right lung, left foot attached by only skin and tendons, got stuck on something pulling myself up the rocks, either pull as hard as I could, or drown. I ripped it off.😵). Anyway, I have a special hatred for gravity, and the B strikes again! Mahalo for any insight. The engine wire harness was full of ok when I got it, distributor o-ring. Fixed, cleaned a few times. The oil had reached the ECM through C connector, I believe.. Was running good for a while! Anyway, My poor frickin car. Aloha Here's My car, and My cliff. That's My white, VERY rusted 97 Nissan, upside down in the pic. Just how I landed. Koof. Drive safe.
