I didn't check the feul pressure. I don't know how?
I bought a new fuel pump kit last October 2008. When I changed the fuel pump I also changed the fuel filter because there is a fuel filter kit or straner on the bottom of the fuel pump in the 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo model. I think I need a new fuel pump assemble. The fuel pump assemble was clean because I check it last weekend. I bent the fuel pump assemble float gauge downward about a quarther of an inch before I reassembled it back together. That may be throwing the gauge off.
But when I bought this used vechical It would never start the first time I turn the ignition. The engine turns, & I would get it to start the second or thrid time. Sometimes it takes me 5-7 simestimes to start it. (Note: I put in new spark plugs last week, new fuel pump Oct. 2008, oil change last week)
Last night, I sprayed gas into the intake carborator then tried starting it again. The engine ran on a very slow idle under 100 RMP for 30 seconds and stopped. Afterwards the CHECK GAUGES LIGHT CAME ON!
This morning when I first tried to start it. As I turned the ignition the engine was turning so slow, it just stopped with no power. I turned the ignition again, it sounded weak the engine didn't turn over and it shut off. I spraded gas into the intake carb and PUT GAS INTO THE FUEL TANK. Then I put a Automatic Battery Starter on my battery and the car started up!
(Note: My fuel tank already had gas in it.)
I was able to drive off and go to work. But when I got to work it shut off as I was parking at a low idle speed. I started it back up 7 seconds after it shut off to make sure it can start up after work.
I was able to drive home but I would put it in nuetral to keep the engine idle at 100 RPM just in case it stops at a low idle speed at stop lights.
I hope this helps alot? Thanks I appreciate
your help, Cedric :)
