Engine Performance problem
1996 Subaru Outback 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual 175000 miles
Previously asked about a fuel pump relay replacement that resulted in the same fuel pressure problem after starting engine a couple times. I did hear the fuel pump start for a couple seconds at the turn of ignition key after installing new relay. Did not last more than 4 starts that seemed successfull, may be a flut and/or also installing new fuel filter. Now no sound from pump. I checked both, old and new relay's engage(voltage & click) for a second apon turn of ignition key.
? Is it typiical for the relay to just kick on for a second upon ignition? Or are both bad relays? Main relay?
Where should I go from here? Fuel pump. Can I test the fuel pump by hooking 12 volt directly to connector terminals and see if it kicks? Before pulling the pump out?
thanks for your guidance.
