Engine Mechanical problem
1978 Other Porsche Models 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 188, 00 miles
Hello, I had been having problems starting my 1978 porsche 924. I use to had to pump the Gas pedal to get start the car started when ever the engine was cold. Usually, the car would be easy to start up after I just drove it. Right after the car had a recent oil and fuel filter change, I was unable to get the car started. The mechanic checked it on a Diagoisis Machine and eveything works with the Fuel pump, and fuel injectors. He said he was getting good fuel pressure to the other cylenders but there was little fuel pressure to the #2 cylender. He said we needed to replace a fuel injector line. Which we did, and the car did not Start. We found gas leakage believed to be due to the Fuel Accumulator, which needs to be under pressure. My Mechanic doesn't know what part is leaking, whether it be the fuel accumulator or the Fuel distrubutor or if the Fuel acummulator is the fuel distrubutor. What does these parts do? Other parts include the Cold start valve (What does this part do?) Fuel level Sending unit (what does this part do?), Fuel pump check valve (what does this part do?) Fuel Sender (what does this part do?) Oxygen sensor (What does this part do) Thermo Time switch (What does this part do?) If you can answer all of my question, I will be glad to donate and maybe even donate more later with other questions.
