I have a 1993 stealth sohc and it cranks, has fuel coming out of the return line when I turn the key off, no fuel when cranking. New fuel pump and filter. Pump is working, a shot of starting fluide
As stated, the engine cranks good and the fuel pump has been replaced and is working, replaced the fuel filter, and when I shoot a small amount of starting fluide in the engine it tries to start but won't. Removed the return line and only get fuel coming out when the key is turned off.
sounds like you have the pump hooked up wrong maybe
No, the pump can only go in one way and the plugs connect only one way.I belive that it is the fuel pump relay. I have a new one but can not find where the old one is. I have the mannels and it does not show a good picture and no description of where to find it. Any ideas on where it might be?
yeh let me get you a nice link on where it is ,, too much to type out
this link is for the fuel pump hot wire,, normally done to the TTs but it shows where the relay is though http://www.stealth316.com/2-fuelpumprelaybypass.htm
Thanks for the link. Very informative. BUT, my relay is NOT there! Maybe it is in a diffeerent location for a standard trans.? Any other posible locations? I am the origanial owner. So I know that onone has played with it.
No! A base model sohc.
my bad I didn't see it in the post lol
anyways the pump is controlled by the MFI relay behind the carperted panel on the side of the console, I totally forgot that the TTs are the only ones that have a dedicated fuel pump relay like that
heres how to test it if you don't want to just throw parts at the problem http://www.3si.org/forum/attachments/f1/78189d1253122498-testing-mfi-relay-mfi_test.jpg
Thank you! I really appreciate all your effort.I'll try this tomorrow. It is passed my bed time and it is dark out. Talk tomorrow.
ok good luck with it
how are you coming along with this problem 3girlcookies ??
Not well! The last sight you gave me I could not get into. Security code is just out of sight to follow. I still think it is the fuel relay and I still have not found it in my car. Still looking. Thanks for checking on me!
its behind the carpet in the console drivers side you know like where your knee hits when your driving
this is the pic in that link you couldn't get to open which I don't know why you wouldn't be able to but no matter here it is though, ill try and find something showing how to get to it
this link is for removing the ECU but it shows how to get to the MFI,, its the one on the passenger side, http://www.stealth316.com/2-ecmremoval.htm
this shows the actual location of the MFI http://www.3sx.com/store/comersus_viewItemBundle.asp?idProduct=26912
Yes, I know where it is and have the drawings and pictures for the MFI. I am still looking for the fuel relay. Can't find it in my car.
that is the relay bro lol on non turbo 3000gts the MFI is the relay,, thought I said that before, did you test the MFI ?
Thought I would bring you up to speed. I finally got my car started yesterday, Sunday, with some personal help. We took the fuel pump back out and tested it. It was bad! A bad NEW fuel pump. Well we pu the second new pump in and connecteed everything up and cranked it over. It started after about 8 seconds of cranking. It is now running great. Thanks for all of your help and time!
