1) Changed all my sparks, rotor, and cap.
2) Cleaned battery cables
3) Overnight fuel line pressure test (which stayed in proper PSI range) - maybe I need to do more extensive fuel pressure tests?
4) Replaced fuel filter
I ran a test recommended by a friend. Turned the key to on position, let the pump prime, then off. They did this again, and then cranked up the engine - it appeared to start normal after this test on a cold start.
So the first assumption was a fuel pressure issue - but it's a bit hard for me to believe the fuel pump is bad if it's priming and getting power OK.
a) Engine starts up 2-3 rotations when engine is warmed up (like normal).
b) I've been told this is most likely a fuel pump issue, but I did not want to jump the gun and spend all of that dough until I felt like the issue was really nailed.
I would really like to solve this issue! So thanks much in advance for any tips or advice to consider.
have the same problem?
