Question about Volkswagen Camper
I just purchased this van and the previous owner said he just put on a new elec fuel pump and cleaned the carb. I can prime the carb and get it to run for about 10 seconds. the pump is working. the previous owner stated that he thought the new fuel pump may have too much psi. any suggestions? Do I need to buy a lower psi pump? thanks, shannon
You may want to check the fuel filter by taking it off and try blowing through it. if you have blowen through a straw and the filter is harder then that replace it. it is running for 10 seconds because its using the fuel in the carb and then it shuts off right. its not to much pressure but could also be a stuck needle valve in the carb. you should make sure you have fuel going to it first. take the line off and stick it in a bucket and turn on the pump you should get fuel coming out thats good. dont need to run it for more then a couple seconds if nothing comes out the filter is clogged the pickup screen is clogged or the line is clogged. good luck hope this helps
