Have a Car Question? Ask a Mechanic Online.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would ask to see if you still need help with this.In some cases if you do not have enough fuel pressure this can cause this issue here as allot of vehicles have to have the minimum amount of fuel pressure before the injectors will operate properly and allow the vehicle to start.The fuel pressure should be tested and the pressure according to my info if your vehicle has the 2.6 liter engine should be between 38 and 46 psi with the key on and engine off.This is tested in line near the fuel filter with an adapter and a fuel pressure test gage.If the pressure is to low then this may be caused by a weak fuel pump in some cases.This may also be caused by no signal to the fuel injectors themselves to atomize/spray fuel.Here is a test procedure you can follow to see if you can find out for sure if they are getting the correct signal.If you need more assistance testing the injectors or if neither of these were the issue let me know.1. Disconnect injector harness electrical connector.2. Check for voltage at the B/Y wire terminal of the harness side connector.IGNITION "OFF" - 0 voltsIGNITION "ON" - 12 volts (battery voltage)3. If no voltage is present, check main relay and wiring between main relay and injector harness connector.Each injector should also have a ground signal/pulse signal from the computer when the engine is cranking over.I hope this has helped in some way here.If you need anything else don't hesitate to ask thats what I am here for.Thanks Pete
Pete: Thanks for your response. FYI, the truck has a carb and even if I pour gas down the carb the plugs are still dry. Help!
No, nothing was done on the engine or intake. There is no suction to the pistons. Could this be the catalytic converter?
