Troubleshooting Hints

1. Engine troubles are usually not caused by the EFI system. When troubleshooting, always first check the condition of the other systems.

(a) Power source

• Fusible links

<b) Body ground

<c) Fuel supply

<d) Ignition system

• High-tension cord

• Distributor (7MGE) or cam position sensor (7M-GTE)

• Igniter and ignition coil

<e) Air induction system

<f) Emission control system

• Ignition timing (ESA system)

2. The most frequent cause of problems is simply a bad contact in wiring connectors. Always make sure that connections are secure.

When inspecting the connector, pay particular attention to the following points:

(a) Check to see that the terminals are not bent.

(b) Check to see that the connector is pushed in completely and locked.

(c) Check to see that there is no signal change when the connector is slightly tapped or wiggled.

3. Sufficiently troubleshoot for other causes before replacing the ECU. The ECU is of high quality and it is expensive.

4. Use a volt/ohmmeter with high impedance ( 10 kft /V minimum) for troubleshooting of the electrical circuit. (See pages FI-30. 49»
