A mysterious non start issue with my Mk2 1.8 98 Eunos. 

 

Last drove it a few nights ago, absolutely fine running great, parked up overnight.

Got in it in the morning after to go to work and it wouldn’t start....It cranks, the starter motor is fine, there is power but it just dies pretty much immediately. It will rev up to 1500 revs then just die.

Plenty of power supply as I’ve tested the battery, ht leads all look good as they’re relatively new, spark plugs are fine. Read a few others had the same problem and thought I’d try and replace the crank angle sensor which I’ve done but still the same issue. There is no CEL lit up on the dash either. 

I did wash the car on the same day it was driving fine. I did noticed water in the passenger footwell with a soaking wet carpet, obviously there’s a leak through the door. I’ve removed the ecu and the plugs and they both look good, no corrosion on the leads or the connectors on the ecu.

Rather than just replacing part after part in the hope it will work can anyone point me in the right direction. Does anyone know of any companies that can test and repair ecu’s? So I can rule that one out.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Luckily I’ve got another vehicle to use

It will be less expensive to try and get a hold of a few known working secondhand parts like a cam sensor first. You have done the crank sensor.

I know the car has a fault light but I would still do a flash test with a diode.

It sounds to me like a sensor somewhere.

That car does not have an immobiliser, I am sure.

No, I do not know anyone who can 100% test that ECU.

Have you checked both side drains? - usually the root cause of wet carpets. It would be unusual for doors to leak, unless the window seals are shot. So you've changed the crank angle sensor, but what about the cam angle sensor, often the cause of starting problems.
I assume you've checked the spark plug leads for a spark, to determine if the spark coils are good?
No known test centres where you can get the ECU tested, but if you make sure it's good and dry, try it on the car anyway. Any problems with that, we have two members who can offer replacement ECU's, post back and one will answer it if you need help. You will need the number located on the cover plate lid.

Fuel pump failing to keep up pressure, blocked fuel filter?
