Q: Injectors not spraying

asked by on

I am getting spark from the plugs, gas is going to the injectors but not starting

My car has 1115625 miles.

If you are getting spark but no injector signal for them to open then you may need to have the camshaft sensor checked to see if it is giving a cam signal to the computer to operate the injectors. Scan the computer and check for codes to see if the computer sees any faults and pinpoint test the codes. You may have a defective computer.
