I am about to lose my mind. I acquired this 93 through an auction knowing it was sitting for about 12 years. The motor turned over. The fuel pump was shot so I replaced that. While i had my hands on it, I did the cap, rotor, plugs, wire, ICM, coil, fuel filter. Still no start. I would spray some starting fluid and it would choke but not run. I ordered a distributor since the original was rusty looking. I connected the two connections to the new distributor and grounded the bottom plate. I spun the shaft and still no pulse. I noticed the distributor was getting hot just sitting there while connected. I checked he voltage on the connections and the 2 wire connect read 12.4v and around 8.5v on the smaller wire. The 4 wire connection read 8.5v across all 4 wires. Any idea what it could be? I ordered a Throttle position sensor because I read that a faulty one can cause the computer to read a false WOT and cut the spark/fuel. I pulled the ECM from the passenger side kick panel and although i can see there was water/moisture contact (rusty spots) on the outside, the inside was clean and dry. The only issue I can consider a possibility with the ECM is I noticed the connection pins on the outside of the ECM seemed a little "coated" with that mildew looking stuff you'd find on some metals due to moisture. I cleaned the entire unit with contact cleaner, took a gentle wire brush and brushed the contacts inside and out. No luck.
