Hi Dan. Thanks for contacting us today. I’m kind of curious as to why you’d remove the O2 sensors - as they are vital for relaying data to the ECU in order to create the right air to fuel mixture. This might be the source of your starting problem. However, it’s also possible that a crankshaft or cam sensor is damaged, or the electrical harness connected to them is frayed or damaged. The first thing I’d do is verify your ignition timing is correct and that those ignition sensors are working well. Second, I’d install the O2 sensors again and secure the electrical harness. Once that is done, clear any existing error codes in the ECU. If this resolves our problem, fantastic! If not, you might want to have a professional mechanic come to your location and help you diagnose this problem.
