ENGINE WON'T START AFTER REPLACING FUEL INJECTORS?

10

Asked by Sep 17, 2017 at 07:50 PM about the 1996 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced all 8 fuel injectors on my 96 Ram 5.9l and now the engine won't start.   
It ran before I changed them but with a bad miss. I discovered the #4 cylinder
was dead and after determining the injector was bad I decided to replace them
all. Any Ideas?

Go back over your work. Maybe you have left a connector unplugged.

I have retraced my steps and can't find anything unplugged, I have spark at the no.1 plug, I have fuel avail at the Shrader valve on the fuel rail, although I have not measured it for PSI. It seems like fuel is not getting through the injectors. I sprayed Starting Fluid down the Throttle Body and got a firing once but that was it. Is there a chance the injectors are vapor locked, or need to be bled like a diesel?

I found the problem, One of the wires on the electrical connection to the coil had broken off where it plugs into the coil. I re soldered it and heat shrinked it, good as new the truck fired right up. The weird part is when I checked for spark there was spark at the no. 1 spark plug. IDK ? it's fixed now.
