    WRX Doest not start

    Howdy,
    I have a K REG Japanese import WRX that cranks over but does not start. I have changed fuel pump, ECU and also getting a spark and getting air. Anything else you can suggest it could be?

    Did this start happening before or after you changed the fuel pump? What one did you use (stock or Walbro?)

    It just suddenly cut out and would not start again. Found fuel pump was not pumping fuel so changed it with another stock pump and getting fuel this time but still no start. Seems like a normal crank, only mods is a turbo timer and piggyback superchip. Car is a K REG 1992. Checked timing belt and seems to line up correctly. I am baffled as it is getting fuel, air, and spark but not firing. Diff ECU not worked either. I thought that if it was crank/cam sensor it would fire but just run lumpy?
    Cheers

    Super chip piggyback could be not outputting a signal or fried. I have had it happen with piggyback units before. You can try removing it and seeing if it will fire.

    Also check all your fuel pump and injector relays.
