Ran out of gas, now wont start. Need Input
What a fun weekend, heres a brief of the whole story.
Went to the local YMCA to pick up my brother. On the way, I noticed my E light came on, but then faded away. This is pretty normal, I noticed if my E light comes on, a lot of times I can drive for another 5 minutes and I'll suddenly have a 1/4 tank. So I know the level sender isn't too accurate. Nevertheless, it dies as soon as he gets in the car. Wont start back up. Won't fire at all.
So my brother gets out and we push it to the side of the lot and see if itll start then. Wont. Dad came with gas and put 2 gallons in, still wont start. We hook jumper cables up and try and start it, wont start.
So after a big long fiasco of how to get it home, we end up pulling it with a tow rope connected to my dad's 4runner. Get it in the garage and warm it up (its like, 20 degrees outside). First thoughts were that there was water sucked up in the tank and it froze in the fuel injectors and wasn't letting gas through. So after it all warmed up, we tried to start it and it still wouldnt start.
Long story short, pulled the plugs off and it sprayed fuel out of each cylinder so it has fuel, the plugs were replaced, and each are sparking when we ground them. Each cylinder has compression. A little funny though, the first one was 140 psi, then 130, and the other two were 125 or so.
My only guess now is to check the distributor cap for water/oil or anything out of the ordinary. Any ideas on this would be great.
