Hello and thank you for you question,

If you install your fuel pressure gauge and monitor the fuel pressure on the first turn of the key on a cold engine what is the pressure reading on the new pump?

right under 35 psi

Does it hold steady on the first turn of the key with out cranking the engine over?

no bouncing of the needle at all.
Mechanic for Honda: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

In most cases if you are having to cycle the key 3 or 4 time to get it to start that usually means the check valve in the new pump is not holding, if you sure the pressure is holding steady and not dropping off and you have good spark it really should tart on the first crank. Are you 100% sure the pressure is holding?

Mechanic for Honda: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Okay what does it do on the first turn of the key cranking the engine, dose the engine start right up?

it is now but when it sits for a day and i go to start it on a cold morning, i get nothing until i cycle the key a couple of times
Mechanic for Honda: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Okay thats when I need yo to check the fuel pressure, after it has set and while the problem is occurring , leave your gauge connected and do not cycle the key but one time and then read the pressure.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
