Try checking the little components first....dist cap, rotor,etc. The distributor might be the prob....Do you know how to check for codes on the ecu? get a haynes manual it should help. Also im hoping you didn't damage the tranny when you went from rev to dr. without coming to a complete stop. Use the brakes next time.

When you put the ignition key to the ON position and engine off (KOEO) the fuel pump is energized for a couple seconds to bring the injector fuel rail pressure up. You should be able to hear it running if you listen closely. Pinch on the fuel filter hose while someone push the ignition key to the ON position and you can also feel the fuel pressure building up.

Take a fuel pressure reading at the fuel rail. It should be around 34-43 psi depending on whether the fuel pressure regulator (FPR) hose is connected or disconnected. The pressure should drop slowly for about 10 minutes with the ignition key removed. Anything earlier could mean a leaky FPR or problem with the fuel pump check valve.

Beware of a weak battery. If the battery is weak it's voltage will drop to about 9VDC with the KOEO fuel pump test. But it would look like a fuel pump problem.

Hope this helps some while others chime in.
