What should the fuel pressure range be on that engine?
The coolant temperature sensor seems very promising. It is acting exactly like it is not compensating for temperature change.
I have a heated garage that I keep at 50 degrees at night. When in the garage it starts better than outside in the cold. I left it out one night to experiment and it turned over several times before starting. It was in the 20 degree range.
Are coolant sensors expensive and would it be logical to try? I am not the type to throw parts at a problem but if parts are cheap I would not mind trying.
Would a code sensor pick out the problem area................or can I put a reader on this car? I guess the only thing that would work might be an OB 1 reader?
Can you give me a description of where the sensor is located? By the way I was skeptical before starting this process...........but have changed my mind. You seem to really have your stuff together. Thanks in advance!!
Sorry I have not responded sooner. Tested the car over the weekend with success. I only changed the temp sensor for the computer so I guess it was the sensor.
The check engine light on these cars turn on automatically at 50,000 and 80,000. Do you know how to get rid of it. I reaally do not want to drive 50 plus miles to the dealer?
Good Job!!! Thanks for your assisrtance.
