Hi all,

This is my first post so thank for having me.

I've recently changed the head gasket and cambelt on my girlfriends 1999 Punto 1.2 8v.

Everything is now back together, the pulleys were lined up when the belts went back on, the RC lead are on the right plugs but it seems that there's no spark and no fuel coming in. The car turns over a few times then struggles like there's a build up of pressure.

The ECU must be interferring for some reason but can't see why. Does anyone know what to check if the ECU is cutting fuel and spark.

Thanks to everyone in advance. This seems like a great resource for us.
