Question about 1982 Alfa Romeo Spider
I removed the air cleaner, I changed the ignition wires, started the car and it ran for twenty seconds and died. I have spark, I have fuel to the injector, but I don't think I am getting gas to the engine. I used starter fluid and the car started. I replaced the relay, nothing. I replaced the air cleaner and installed the vac hoses and nothing. There were a few wires not connected at the relay and switch (any photos of this without the air cleaner on would be appreciated,) and I don't know if they were disconected prior to my dismantaling the air cleaner or not. Any help would be great.
Check your in tank fuel pump. It should have a minimim of 3 PSI. Many were installed as a recall and there is also a rubber sort of fuel line from the pump to the tube leading out of the tank. These may crumble in you hands - so replace it with new tubing and make sure it is secure. You also may want to check the output of the main fuel pump - don' t "dead head" it - use a T fitting. Look of an optmum or around 17 PSI.
