although rare it is possible to destroy the fuel pump by running tank to m/t , a quick check to see if this is the case is to sit in car with door open , hold your foot on door jam switch (stops chime) and turn key to run (not start) once or twice in a row , if your pump is still working , you will hear fuel injectors prime , (elect motor runs for three seconds ) you may have to listen carefully and repeat test several times to hear it (quiet place helps !!) if you don't hear the pump prime !! and you ck/replaced the fuel pump fuse already , it will need replaced (its inside fuel tank !!)
TRACE the Fuel Line from the FUEL TANK to the ENGINE... GO SLOW and if there is a Fuel Filter, you will find it. If there is no Fuel Filter, then it is either part of the Carburator Screen or there is none
You're going to find that it is best to leave airlines alone as they tend to do their job pretty well weather or not they are hooked up to anything. See, the air is all around us and they can just **** it in or push it out however they want. If you want to create some suction to improve vehicle performance. attach a smaller hose to the current one and just let 'em ride my friend, let 'em ride.
yeah, take the service manager and the mechanic who worked on it for a highway ride. Tell 'em to put all the parts they replaced back in because it didn't make a difference. Hey, if did would the problem still be there? Ask for all your money back too, because: duh, they didn't fix anything.
Then start over. Tell 'em to fix it right this time. But come to the realization that they can't. wouldn't they have fixed it right the first time?
Hi I am Vortash sorry to hear of your problem .. Kids lol got to love em ? lol .. sorry to say but the compression readings are far too low minimum should be 140 to 150 psi per cylinder .
now you say it was the power stering belt that went , this on it's own should not have caused overheating at all unless the water pump is also driven by this belt ? then I am afraid it is possible you cooked your head .. you will need to have the head removed and pressure tested for cracking .. there should be no damage to valves as the timing belt did not break .. so therefore the pistons would not have hit the valves at all unlike your wifes car .. again got to love em lol ?.. But this test will determine if the heat has damaged the valve seats .. you will probably have to have a couple of thou machined off the head and a new gasket .. My advice is to obtain the Haynes Manual for this car it will tell you the best way off dissmantling and reassembly and save you time and money .. hope this helps regrads Vortash
Check fuel filter, blow back through fuel lines to tank, check lines for blockage, leaks or cracks, drain and flush fuel tank.
Make sure air intake is free from leaks or blockage, filter is clean and correctly fitted
Check fuel pump connections, try to hear if pump operates by turning on ignition (without starting engine), pump should operate for a few seconds until pressurised then cut out, any longer indicates worn or leaking pump, lines or connectors, especially if done over 300000km.
Otherwise check earths from engine to chassis, also EMS fittings for corosion, or have unit tested.
Hello now that I see this messages you making me to remember when this use to happen to me I was totally mad especially that I try everything even on my wedding Honey moon it was a disaster I took my truck to my Honey moon it was 12 hrs from home but it took me around 20 hrs once I get back home from my trip I decide to spend a full day trying to find out what was wrong with my truck I had a dodge ram 1500 1995 5.9 engine and the main problem was with the fuel pump it run fine for about 3 hrs and then it die and I had to wait around 20 minutes and then run another 2-3 hrs in low speed the higher the speed the less time it took to fail again how I found it was the pump well inside in the engine compartment there is a fuel line with a valve to check the fuel pump pressure I did run my truck hard until the fail occur then I install the pressure gauge try to turn the switch on and it was no pressure at the line problem solve the fuel pump was getting hot after couple of hrs running sometimes it only took about an hour to fail try this and see if you have the same problem it could be a different problem but it is good to know this
