How to check fuel pressure 91 geo storm gsi


1.6L DOHC (same way as the ISUZU impulse ) same car.
4XE1 engine twin cam.
has MPI injection with fuel rail, regulator and loop
disconnecting the feed line and stuffing it with guage only does 1 of 5 tests. done on MPI. it does JUST the shut test.
the correct way it to check it at the filter or rail tests ports on most cars.
in some cases you must add it.
they sell banjo fittings with test ports at summit racing dot com.
so the first question on all MPI cars, is , where is the stock fittings.
other cars the rail has a schrader valve or a plugged hole to add one. (test port) did you look first for this?
to test the FPR, unplug the vacuum line running
and pressure will jump up 6 to 10 psi.
this simulates wide open throttle pressure, a key fact in getting full power from engine, i test cranking presssure, idle, 3000rpm
and wot pressures to be sure the PFR is working, not just the pump.



the spec at the rail is.

Late 1986 to 1993 I-TEC MPFI system (after VIN 0908197)
Regulator vacuum line connected-36 psi
Regulator vacuum line disconnected-42.5 to 45 psi

the shunt test can hit 60 pis easy. do so for only 5sec.
as this stresses the pump .

the only rail drawing , shows no fittings (cheap buggers)



not even a cheap plug...

24024302-wtht4tipiqsxmsfaksxjx4vs-4-0.jpg below is the twin cam, 1.6L
buy a TEE feeting, and put it at upper, red arrow.
use clamps rated for fuel injection, not chezzy screw band clamps as seen on carb cars. use the correct parts.
or you will get leak and it will not be pretty,
the filter as at 14 ID. this is the pressure feed side of the loop.
30 to 60psi , so all parts must be rated over 60, psi, (100psi is a nice goal)

24024302-wtht4tipiqsxmsfaksxjx4vs-4-1.jpg

now the words directly from the IMPULSE FSM.

Testing
  1. Relieve the fuel pressure.
  2. Disconnect the fuel line near the engine and install fuel pressure gauge T-connector in the line.
  3. Connect the fuel pressure gauge to the T-connector.
  4. Start the engine and check the fuel pressure, it should be:
  5. 4XC1-Turbo and DOHC I-Mark, G200Z Impulse: 35.6 psi with the vacuum hose of the pressure regulator disconnected and plugged. 28.4 psi with the vacuum hose connected and at idle.
  6. 4ZC1-Turbo, 4ZD1 Impulse and 4ZE1 engine: 42.6 psi with the vacuum hose at the pressure regulator disconnected and plugged. 35.6 psi with the vacuum hose connected at idle. Disconnect the VSV before checking pressure.
  7. V6 engine: 9.13 psi at the fuel pressure line after the fuel filter.
  8. 4XE1 SOHC and DOHC engine: Flow test, disconnect the hose from the EFI fuel feed line at the engine and place in a suitable container. Apply battery voltage to the fuel pump. Pump should supply 1/4 quart (0.24L) within 15 seconds. Pressure test, connect a pressure gauge in the fuel pressure line after the fuel filter, located at the driver's side frame rail. Disconnect the vacuum hose from the pressure regulator. Apply battery voltage to the pump. After the pump stabilizes, the pressure should be 35-38 psi (245-256 kPa) and hold steady.

Want to install a turbocharger kit onto Jag s-type 2000 3.0L V6, what type of modifications must be done if any to install the turbocharger?


The modifications would be intensive to say the least, I am personally building a taurus SHO Motor for a turbo and I am doing pistons, con. Rods, crank, cams, larger valves, and the compression ratio is going from 10.5:1 all the way down to 8.5:1 all internals forged of course and I am looking into getting custom sleeves made for the block to ensure power and longevity I would at least do pistons, conn. rods, a lower compression ratio (at least 8.5:1), and also head stud conversion because the weakest link on any kind of ford duratec, Vulcan, or related engines is the head bolts. As a stock engine you might be able to push 5 psi without launching your heads to china and 5 psi is good for like 40 HP defiantly not worth the money you would pay for the turbo kit. But in my opinion the hardest part is actually getting manifolds made to turbo it unless you just buy the manifold from shosource but then it's soooo not worth the time and money to push 5 psi I would do the same things that I described above that I am doing to my engine so that you can easily push 10 psi good for an easy 100+ HP and foot pounds of torque.

Can I turn up the psi on my Mazda's turbo?


Yes but you need a kit to do that from some aftermarket source. The factory turbo pressure "dump" valve is not really adjustable. If you do this and add to much boost you can (and likely will) damage the engine or at the very least blow a cylinder head gasket. Do not go over about 2-3 pounds more boost, that will be good for about 20 HP. You will also need to modify the exhaust to be free flowing and the air intake system to flow more air as well as calibrate the computer for the extra boost and use premium gas all the time. You see it is not that simple.

Im trying to fit a turbo into a 1985 honda civic ok its a stock engine currently but i cleaned it all out and its running smoothly so i though hey why not modify it but im having trouble trying to figure...


Hi

1. First you need to find a matched turbo exhasut manifold.
2. Then you can find the position for the turbo once you have fitted the exhaust manifold.
3. You will heed to remove the radiator for now as the mounting position for this may need modifying also.
4. You will then need to get a oil supply line made up and fit this once turbo is fitted.
5. Run all your intercooler and inlet tract piping and your in business.
6. remount your radiator.

That should give you a very quick idea of what needs to be done, of course the job is going to take you longer.

Good Luck

Hi, I have a 2001 ford f250 diesel. Recently I`ve lost fuel ecomomy (600 km/tank to 400km/tank),and also lost power. The turbo sound has changed and is not as quick to spool. At normal driving turbo...


I had one of our work trucks do something similar. It turned out to be the tube that goes to the charged air cooler was split. This is a large plastic tube that carries the pressurized air from the turbo to the chraged air cooler (it's in front of the radiator) then back to the engine.
Start the engine and have some one hold it at a fast idle and feel around for an air leak on those tubes. Be careful not get your hands in the belt or fan.

How to turn up the turbo psi boost in a 2005 ford f-350 6.0 liter Superduty


You just can't turn up the turbo boost any more with the new engines. If the turbo start to boost more then the PCM is programed to, it will cut the fuel pressure down and you loose more HP. Here is a link for you if your looking to get good HP out of your 6.0 liter diesel. You can replace the wast gate for the turbo with a higher PSI rating but your going to have to by a electronic boost builder for the PCM so it will not kill the fuel pressure soon as you start making more boost. http://www.thoroughbreddiesel.com/bd-diesel/turbo-boost-builder.htm and http://innovativediesel.com/ Good luck and hope you get the HP your looking for to get out of your engine.

there isn't a 1.4L in a 96 civic. only a 1.5 and a 1.6L. all you need to actually fit it to the car is a turbo exhaust manifold but i would suggest buying a complete turbo kit. a kit will come with everything needed to turbo the car.
