Have you checked/replaced the O2 sensor(s). They produce the data that your computer reads. Bad/clogged O2 sensors will trick the ECU into running lean/rich.

The Compressor doesnt have a fuse. whats the issue

You'll need to remove the bolts on the motor mounts and jack up the front of the engine to get enough clearance to get the pan clear once all the pan bolts are removed.

Have checked the idle air control valve. If stuck closed it will not allow air to bypass the throttle therefore it will start and stall.

Do they stay on if the brake light switch is unplugged ?

First, get a service manual, I don't recommend trying to track down these wires by hand (and I don't have my books anymore). Gotta trace the solenoid power back to the ignition switch. Since this power works separately from the fuse box it could be that the fuse is blown, after that pull the ignition switch. A test light should tell you where the power isn't... When I did an engine swap, I missed the lead to the battery that powers the fuse box for the stuff in the cab. Happy hunting!

i want to know how to put wires in order

1990 Chevrolet... | Answered on Apr 27, 2014

Have you checked for spark at the plugs? Are you certain that the timing chain and tensioner were installed properly? Camshaft position sensor and crankshaft position sensor are OK? Without the right signal, nothing happens. Have you checked the coil packs, plug wires, and spark plugs? If there is no spark while cranking, you'll have to figure out why, and a shop manual is about the only way to go to do that. If you have spark, then you need to check for fuel at the injectors and the proper injector signal. Have you checked for fuel pressure at the rail? Does the fuel pump run? Is the fuel filter plugged?
It could also be a wiring problem somewhere in the electrical harness. If the right wire or wires are broken or corroded, then it could easily keep the engine from running. Even a loose or broken connector or a bent connector pin can cause all sorts of headaches.
