View Full Version : Fuel problem....I think

05-23-2009, 12:34 AM
When i go to start my car it takes quite a few turns before it starts, but if i shut it off and start it within a 2 hour time period it starts back up right away.

Any suggestions as to what the problem would be ?

could be leaky injectors, check when you start if theres any black smoke coming out of your exhaust. If not, could be FPR.

My car did the same thing. I don't know exactly where it is but the behavior is typical of a busted checkvalve - letting the fuel pressure recede back into the fuel tank overnight. Even after the swap my engine was tough to start on the first start of the day. After I changed the pumps it went away.
