plenty of gas squirts out
Even though you are getting an ample amount of fuel flow from the schrader valve, it still doesn't mean the pump can generate enough pressure to allow the engine to start correctly. Do you know somebody that you could get a fuel pressure gauge from so that we could get an accurate test on the pump completed before we speculate on other things?
I can go buy one whats the pressure Im looking for?
ok i did pull a plug and naturally it was soaked... i'll run and get a pressure gauge now bb in like 20 mins with answer
ok...dont laugh but first time using a fuel pressure gauge! Hooked it up, cycled key about 3 times before it held at 40psi. Emptied it and tried again it 2 cycles of ignition to to 40... and then tried cranking it, it remained constant at 40 psi...
Ok so I bought this car non running and the Previous owner said he thought it was a fuel pump, and it;s been sitting for a while, so before I tried to start it the plugs should have been dried out im thinking
it lloked blueish whit I'll go check again, only thing according to previos owner was he had a buddy mechanic check it in the parking spot where it was and they summised it was fuel pump cuase the lady kept running it low on gas was their theory...and before I spring for a $200 fuel pump I want to make sure
Ok I checked the mass airflow, I didnd try cleaning it, it looks good, I will try cleaning it tommorow and see if it fires. I have a compression tested, but not a code reader.
ok will do that tommorow.. already dark and cold as antartica here now!
