need some help. 93 toyota 4x4 manual v6 all stock. was driving home the other day and the the truck just stalled coming to a stop cranked it but it wouldnt fire pulled and put back in the key it started again but only for a minute then died again and now will not start cranks fine can hear fuel pump but doesnt even sputter. cranked it over for a bit then checked a plug and no sign of being wet just white which i believe is from running lean. checked the fuel filter and replaced checked fuel at the rail and it is getting to the injectors just not past. test light lit up touching the injector wires while cranking motor. at i huge loss on how or what aside from maybe fuel computer which i dont know how to test. not check light either. appears fuel related vs spark but need help as this is the wifes vehicle and need it running because both need running cars because of child. any ideas or help is much appreciated, will gladley provide beers or food if you think you can fix it.

HEI ignition, correct?

I had a '92 V6 Toyota 4x4, and it did something similar. It ended up being the ignition igniter (basically the coil pack). Test it and see if it's carrying the load. It was so long ago I can't remember any details, but hopefully that's a place to start.

ill hook up the timing light and see if it will flash while cranking the motor. would the spark system cause the injectors to not get a pulse signal or something because the plug i pulled was bone dry after cranking the motor for about 30 seconds and was not smell of fuel from the cylinder

cap and rotor replaced, still unable to confirm spark on my own but no change to symptoms. fuel pump runs no smell of fuel from the cylinders no sputtering even rotor in distro turns...... no signs of loose wires or relay issues need an easy way to pull an injector or at least tell if its being told to fire

Voltmeter/light tucked into the injector connector?

Basically it sounds like it's not getting told to inject. Search for clues along those lines(no fuel out the injectors, or whatever) online and see if anything similar pops up in your searches.

pull a plug or grab a spare plug and plug it into 1 of the wires and touch the threads to a bolt and have someone crank it?

appears ecm issue since the check light doesnt come on at all when turning the key to the on possition. no fuel or spark from what i can find so its ecm or ignitor. dont suppose anyone has access to a 89-95 v6 toyota manual trans doesnt even have to be a truck or 4x4 just same motor and manual will have the ecm i need so i can test the parts

appears to be fixed as of now. mechanic found a short out in the air meter that was causing the no fuel and no spark issues and caused the distributor to fail as well. wife is on the way to pick it up now. :D thanks for the feedback and help
