Re: Bad Coil, Bad Reference Sensor, Bad Main Relay???
Well dont test for fuel smell....test for fuel pressure and look if your fuel pump works. Run a paper clip with the car off from pins 30 and 87 on the fuel relay, it will turn on the pump but it doesnt tell you how well it works. Go get a water pressure gauge from lowes or home depot, a 100 PSI one is more accurate since the numbers are spread more out, they have 200 and 300 PSI ones as well. Get a female T block, 2 male barbs with the outside diameter as the inside diameter of the fuel hoses, then put the gauge on the top. You will want to run something similar to teflon tape, i cant remember the exact name but its a yellow tape and its resistant to getting eaten by oil and fuel.
You unhook the feed line going into the rail and will the bars and gauge screwed into the block, run the feed line going to the rail (not the return from the FPR) and run another hose, something preferrably from autozone (electronic fuel injection reinforced hose) and run that from the other barb to the fuel rail. This should run about 34 bucks after tax.
You can get the hose long enough to run outside near the door but thats a good 30 dollars in hose, so you can get a friend to crank the car and see what your fuel pressure is.
For spark, the reference sensors will test as is with no variables, all you need and from what you said, is a multimeter.
For the coil did you test using the middle pin, to the terminal on the coil, in addition to a ground from the - on the coil to the frame rail? the coil needs to be tested in 3 spots using the multimeter, the bentley manual tells you how to check each one.
All of this is fairly easy, with a multimeter you should be able to find your problem quickly, and with what i told you about the fuel, that as well.
You can test a relay with a battery, some wire and female spade connectors, 30 is power in, 85 is ground, 86 is switch, and 87 is power out. Apply power to 85 and 86 to move the leg for power to flow, the main relay is a 5 pin however, the white relay.=============================
