tims auto repair :

 

Customer:

I'll have to get a fuel pressure tester I'll let you know. Thanks

Customer:

To check the fuel system pressure it says to turn to run the engine ,but the car dosen't start ,Does it mean to turn the key in on position?

tims auto repair :

yes,,turn the key on,,you may need to do it a few times,,sense the engine doent run..and the fuel pump only runs for a few seconds when you first turn the key on


 

tims auto repair :

thanks


 

tims auto repair :

 

Customer:

I tried to listen in the fuel filler tube to listen for the fuel pump according to the manual I should hear the pump about 3 seconds,but I don't hear anything.So I took off the return fuel line after the pressure regulator and turned on the key on then I could hear the fuel pump.

tims auto repair :

yes


 

tims auto repair :

but.you need tocheck the pressure


 

Customer:

Check fuel pressure got good fuel pressure, what's next?

tims auto repair :

ok..if it seems to be flooding on just one cylender,,,you may need to just replace an injector,,,,but,,if it is still flooding on all,,you ecm[computer] may infact be bad and need to be replaced


 

Customer:

Ok ,I have a throttle body injector there is only one main injector.Should do a diagnostic check on the trottle position sensor also.

tims auto repair :

yes..but it isnt likely that this is a mechanical problem,,,from the way you explain

Customer:

Ok I'll let you know Thanks
