Finally, I feel so panic to do the replacement cause everything I did to my car is always my first strike.
After the fuel pressure regulator replacement. I tired three times to start the engine with no luck. Exactly the same crank but no start noises which quite familiar to me.
So I started to think. " OK! It's not the fuel pressure regulator. Maybe I would better try to troubleshoot somewhere else. Whenever I tried to crank the engine again. It could only flood more fuel into the system and the engine oil"
But I would like to crank one last time.
FOURTH CRANK The engine sounds weird. It's the sound I've never heard before. Somewhere between cranking and coughing. Also sounds like a patient who caught a cold or a flu.
It sounds like the cranking has been success but I'm not very sure. The whole body is shaking and vibrating. And there was weird smell too.
More likely a zombie struggling back to life again.
All of these symptoms gone after about 12 seconds. I opened the hook to inspect any leaking or any other unexpected events.
Fortunately, my baby had stabilized after a while and I started to drove it around in the community again.
This vehicle had sit inside the garage for more than seven weeks
During this few weeks. I also cleaned many places inside the vehicle.
It runs smooth and it runs like new.
It's my first time trying to fix my vehicle myself. Hard to describe how exciting it is. Thanks to " Hmac300 " 's prompt attention. I also checked the information about Cam Shaft Sensor. It could definitely help on next " No Start " Diagnosis.
One last question. I'm trying to do some electrical test in this vehicle as well. According to some of the article I found on the internet. It states that some of the electronics are so sensitive. If I ever did something wrong. It can be shorted or damaged once I got close enough which I don't even needed to touch it.
It's also my first try to do the electrical test myself. Is it true? Doing electrical test on vehicle is that dangerous thing? Is there any manual available to teach newbie to do the electrical testing on vehicle safely?
