I was checking my resistor pack's resistance and got a reading of 4.7 - 5 ohms. My Haynes manual says the resistance should be 3 ohms.

Will this cause my car not to start?

I suspected it is the resistor pack after doing a search on trying to find out why my car wont start.

BTW, I have spark and getting fuel to the fuel rail. Also the car was running fine then suddenly stopped. All vacuum hoses look okay at first look.

I checked another car and the resistance reading was 7 ohms and the car was running fine.

Has anyone checked theirs? What values do you guys get?

I also checked resistance on my coils and the reading was 1.4 ohms where it is supposed to be 0.3 - 0.5 ohms.

The reason why I'm asking is to find out if all these differences makes a difference in the performance of the car, and maybe the reason why engines don't perform as good as they do from factory even if you do a rebuild.

Hi resistance should limit your max power out since injectors will not open fast enough at hi rpm sending less fuel per squirt than could be obtained with low resistance.
