I got a diagnostics reading for my 1996 subaru legacy outback and got codes po183. got any answers for me?

P0183 Subaru - Fuel Temperature Sensor 'A' Circuit High Input ' Add Comment
Possible causes
- Faulty Fuel Temperature Sensor
- Fuel Temperature Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Fuel Temperature Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
What does this mean?
When is the code detected?
An excessively high voltage from the sensor is sent to ECM.
Possible symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
P0183 Subaru Description
The fuel tank temperature sensor is used to detect the fuel temperature inside the fuel tank. The sensor modifies a voltage signal from the ECM. The modified signal returns to the ECM as the fuel temperature input. The sensor uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. The electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases as temperature increase

this sensor is in the fuel tank on the fuel pump assembly. If you look under the carpet behind the rear passenger seat, you should see a sort of rectangular access cover. Underneath this cover is the connector to the fuel pump. Make sure that all looks good. Could just be a bad connection. Sometimes when you have the fuel filter replaced a place will unhook this connector. When it's reconnected it might not be fully seated or have a bent pin or something

I have a 1992 chevy lumina Z34 with a 3.4L engine. The car has been sitting for about two years. I replaced the fuel pump, and fuel filter, also I replaced the oil pressure switch but I can't get fuel...

Do you hear the fuel pump switch on when the ignition is turned on by listening at the fuel pump with ignition on you should hear a hissing sound for a few moments and then once the fuel pressure is reached the pump will stop. If not check the electrics and fuses.

How can you tell if the fuel pump is bad

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. The easiest way to tell if it is kicking on is my listening for the sound of the pump. When you first turn the key, you should hear a humming sound for a second or two. This is your fuel pump kicking on. If you don't hear it, it is not kicking on. If so, check your fuel pump fuse, relay, or reset button if you have one. It is possible that the pump works but is just not getting power. You would have to test it from the pump with a voltage meter to know for sure. If you don't hear it kicking on though, it may be bad. If you have cranked it a lot, it might not turn on because the pump is already primed, so let it rest before you try it again.

It helps if you tell what year,model, engine you are working on. Is power at the Inertia Switch? The power comes from the FUEL PUMP RELAY, the ECM only grounds the relay to turn it on. but not knowing what you are working on, thats all the info I have .

How do I clean my injectors on my 93 caprice.Its been sitting all winter.And I went to start it and it would only keep running with shots of starting fluid.I put stable intank before winter ,but didnt...

Do you hear the fuel pump kick on when you turn your key on? Should be a buzz for about 2 seconds. If you do not hear the fuel pump kick on then try banging on the bottom of the tank with your hand, sometimes that will get the pump to kick back into working again, but know that this trick only works a few times, may be time to replace a fuel pump. The only reason I suggest this is because you stated that it sat all winter. As far as cleaning your injectors-you can pull them out and maybe soak them in a cleaning solvent but i would try to see if your pump is working first. You can also check the schrader valve on the fuel rail to see if you are getting fuel up to the engine.

My 92 century 3.3l stalled on way home and i let it sit for about 10 mins and it restarted and I made it home. I replaced fuel pump but the very next day stalled again. what should i do....

did u test the fuel pressure before u installed the pump? it is more likely the crankshaft position sensor on the engine is defective, run a trouble code test and see if u have any codes for thei sensor. Go to this web site to read how to run a trouble code test.
