Hi Im David, pull the IAC and EGR valves. clean all the carbon out of them with brake parts cleaner and a brush and rag. clean them good and clean the passages where they mount. reinstall them. it should make a difference for sure.
yes, those would cause problems like that. is the check engine light on?
ok, yea then try that. let me know how much improvement you get.
keep me posted..please.
or the fuel pressure regulator. it should not take 3 times to build up the right pressure.
fuel filters rarely cause problems anymore. its either a weak pump or fpr. have a fuel pressure test done.
i wil send you the spec. allow me a sec
standby a minute, i send you a pic
its a solenoid, not a valve
electronic vacuum regulator valve
i really hope its clears everything up for you!
the pintle on the inside should not be able to hardly move unless electrically actuated
check the fuel pressure before replacing the pump.
fuel injectors not getting pulse from the computer, clogged fuel injectors...
I suppose it would, but I would run to harbor freight, but a fuel pressure guase for cheap and test it before replacing the pump. because if its the pump,why would it wait 5 minutes? something is dropping out and overheating. and it may be the pump, but i would want to be sure.
do you still need assistance?
