i dont think that an EJ20G has any cut for the fuel or spark when the car gets in an crash...

everything should be just as it was. if you are getting fuel you need to check your spark. if you have fuel and spark you may have something else going on. try if all is well the engine may be flooded. try holding it WOT and see what happens.

if i remember correctly you said when you wecked it the core support did not contact the engine. so if that is the case. all should be well...

well.. my FP wasnt working when i turned it on... but the FP works now.. and yes i tried WOT..

maybe a lil starter fluid? idk... ill try that... and ill take out the plugs to see if its flooded.

i took a better look and the only part that broke on the motor. is the timing belt cover... and it does not look like anything else moved/ broke...nothing is contacting the belts..

I've heard of the composite cam pullies shattering in crashes. If the t-belt covers are broken, take them off and look over the timing and pullies.

yeah i looked at the belts... (slightly)... i didnt see any MAJOR damage... the cam pullies werent touched. i dont think anyting is broken... cuz i wasnt hit too hard... the body took most of the damage... but... i can try to take off the belt cover and take a good look.

so you just had a blown ignition fuse? mine will start after a few craks but it wont stay running....it sounds like it's idling on 2 or 3 cylinders then it just dies. I do remember after the crash that my gas light was on after the next couple days without running the car. The 1st couple times i tried to start the car i later realized that one of my intercooler couplers was torn wide open....maybe i flooded the motor?
