great tips!

Well I checked it out when I got home a little while ago and I did hear the fuel pump kick on when I cycled the key a few and tried to start it but no luck. I sounded like it wanted to start but nothing happened.

I'm going to check the fuel pressure tomorrow morning what psi am i looking for?

Thanks

Looks like between 40-50 psi, but correct me if I'm wrong anyone, I'm looking off a free downloaded manual. Also, I noticed that my fuel pump has had a nice whine to it, and it's been like that since I bought it. Should I look into replacing something...aka some sort of o-ring? I'm all about preventative maintenance, I would hate to get stranded in northern Michigan, thanks!

It's like being around a toddler: Pretty soon you realize the whine is the good sound and you learn to fear the silence after it stops.

To be fair, a timing chain could snap too...but I really think it's fuel related.

Well I haven't really had a chance to get out and take a look at it today however I did notice that it looks like something might be leaking on the pasenger side ............ I hope thats not a bad omen.

I did have it towed yesterday and it was sitting in a different part of the driveway and I had to push into the back yard. I didn't see anything in driveway where it was sitting all day or where I normally park.

Any thoughts........

I take that back it does look like there is a little bit oil on the ground where it was sitting all day yesterday. I pulled the dip stick and it looks like there is oil in engine.

Well it was O-Ring and the metal cap on the fuel pump. The o-ring was sticking out and the metal cap is cracked.

I'm guessing thats not something that I will be able buy at dealership?

called it!

;^)


None of the diagrams seem to show a part number just for that cap. I did read of someone that bought an assembly off ebay and moved the cap over.
