My 1999 SE 2.0 was working okay yesterday. It wont start today. I have placed spark plugs in the inverted DIC. I could not see a spark but received a shock from one plug when I placed the plug box lid between the electrodes. I guess the box had a foil paint or something. Next I checked the plugs installed in the head for wetness after a long crank time and they were dry. From a previous posting I assume that this means there is a problem with the CPS or the fuel pump. Where is the fuel pump? How do you check it? Can the CPS be cleaned and then reset? or do I just buy a new one?
Using a diagnostic tool from O'Reilly's, my first reading indicated a missfire on cylinder one. After replacing plugs, old weren't too bad, the next reading indicated a high intake air circuit problem. I understand that this is located on the intake under a cowl on the backside of the engine.
So . . . ., if,
CPS bad = no start????
Fuel pump bad = obviously no start
What else can it be???

air circuit

If the High intake air circuit is bad, will this prevent the car from starting?
