  • jamessquirre May 27, 2009

    ill give you my answer when i check the fuel pump or if i find the pressure regulator

  • jamessquirre Jun 24, 2009

    the fuel pump is working i change the fuel filter and i think check pressure regulator . i don,t really know what it looks like. I took off something that looks like a fuel filter and on the side hole gas pour out . what else is there to check

    i found the problem.it was the spark plugs they were"t getting any spark at all. they were gapped to much. so i gapped them any old way and the motor started but it was kicking once in awhile so i"m going to get some new spark plugs today see how the motor runs.

If u have no pressure from pump but pump is making noise,its a badly blocked fuel filter,leaking fuel line or pump is defect!

    is fuel pump pushing gas or your assuming its working because its making noise?fuel pressure regulator is located on drivers side top of motor on fuel rail,its a round valve with a vacum hose connected to it,youll need a hand held manual vacum pump and a inline fuel pressure gauge to check it.

General advice:After warming up track the problem:sparkplugs (even new can have the ceramic parts broken/cracked /wiring (after warming up the isolation get's soft,can loose spark power)/ignition coil(s) (gets hot,stop runnig),running reach,fuel pump/fuel pump relay.Best guess:fuel pump mallfunction (low pressure) related,fuel filter cloged/water in the fuel/fuel line cloged/chipped. Cheers,hope u figure it out,let the people know.

1992 cavalier runs rough,it will run for awhile but then will stall,it runs rough when you shake the car so i changed the fuel filter and pump still runs rough the OBD code is 66 what does that mean??


code 66 is the a/c pressure switch. which will not make car run rough and stall unless its back feeding power. run engine with ac off and unhook connector to high pressure switch. the most common reason for running rough could be a bad sparkplug or sparkplug wire, check the wires and plugs also check dist cap and rotor for arcing. and last is how old is the o2 sensor, a bad o2 sensor can also cause this problem.

First check and see if you have spark at the sparkplug if you do then you need to check your fuel pressure.It sounds like to me that your fuel pump has went out to lunch.When you turn your ignition on try and listen for the fuel you should here it for the first 2 seconds you turn the switch on.

Motor stalls when driving then starts and stalls right away.


Replace the distributor's magnetic pickup located inside the distributor surrounding the distributor shaft, the only other thing thankfully on this ignition system if memory serves me on the f 150 straight six 300 cu inch is the dura spark ignition control box, of course do the obvious tune up parts replacement dist.cap rotor,plug , sparkplugs before spending the $40.00 - $50.00 bucks on the dist.. pick up, you may have a weak a fuel pump check for adequate fuel pressure at carb 7 - 10 lbs.

take an ohm meter reading on your spark plug outputs between the three coils (if this has that type) big difference replace it and maybe the controller also.
