How can i check that?


Disconnect a spark plug wire insert a screwdriver into the boot and then hold the metal part of the screwdriver 1/2 in. From a metal part of the engine, have someone crank the engine while you watch for spark. Next check for fuel, locate the test fitting on the fuel rail unscrew the plastic cap and depress the schraeder valve and have someone turn the switch on, fuel should spray out. I hope this helps you
