Engine Performance problem
1997 Saturn SL1 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles
I have a 97 Saturn Model SL Series SL24D I am having what I believe is a fuel pump issue. When we got the car it ran great but when starting on first try it would turn over but not fire so off with the key and on the second time it would fire and run great. So no stuttering or lack of power. Came home two nights ago parked and 6 hours later went to go to the store and it would not fire it would give a little kick every couple of seconds but thats it. So I am ok mechanical wise and figure fuel pump so to test I pulled the fuel line off at the front of the fuel filter. When I turn the key on I expect a constant flow of fuel for a good pump what I got was a 1 to 2 second stream of fuel then nothing? Makes me think there is a fuel pressure switch of some kind to cut the fuel pump when it doesnt build pressure? Like in the case of a wreck fuel cut off so no free flow or a bad pump?
Thanks for reading the book
have the same problem?
