new parts = bad parts
I feel that part stores should pay us for parts that are faulty (labor!). A year ago I put in a new fuel pump, strainer,fuel pump relay, and fuel filter. I had the problem solved until a month ago and started having no fuel pressure unless I let the car turn over three separate times, remove the key and then it would start and run great for the rest of the day. While making my decisions, I noticed the fuel pump was not working when it was turning over. Right away I made several attempts at other things that could have been the bad apple. My last result was the fuel pump relay. It was my fault to not check things in the order that was listed in the service manual. I just did the diagnostics that was in my mind from when the fuel pump went bad. In my garage, I should not think that a $20 part should not fail in less than a year. My mistake and it will not happen again! Oopss....This is just a reminder to keep with the manuals and stick to what they tell ya on this forum.
Thanks again BF!
My wife put the car in the ditch during a snow storm and I was doing some looking under the car. I noticed the brake pads were looking slim and the struts were making some noise. After some bad words and a few brews it was off to work. New brakes, new struts, new alignment and this car rocks.....
