Engine Performance problem
1997 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 180, 00 miles
My father just replace my fuel pump but did not check the pressure as recommended in Chilton manual. Original problem was van not starting on the first try and had a gas smell coming from underneath. He found a leak and a nipple broken on fuel pump. So he changed it yesterday. At first it was fine, but today is seems worse, minus the gas smell. It takes 2 or 3 times to start and I have to pump the gas pedal or it wont start at all. Before replacing the pump the van would start fine after it had been driven, now it doesnt matter it just doesnt want to start like it should. Is it the carburator? The fuel filter? (Which he did not replace) or should I just take it into a shop? No he is not a mechanic but pretty knowledgable. Thanks.
have the same problem?
