[DML] Re: Starting problems... cold, now warm.

Sometimes when you fix one problem another, related problem surfaces.
The second problem was always there, it was just underlying the
bigger, origional problem. Sort of like when you take the big rocks
out of the river and then lower the level, you find more big rocks. I
am going to guess you have to replace the fuel accumulater and
possibly the control pressure regulater. A fuel pressure guage would
be useful to confirm the diagnosis without having to replace the parts
to see if I am right. A quick and "dirty" test of the fuel accumulater
is to remove the short hose coming off the end (the one with the hose
clamps) and see if fuel comes out from the acumulater when you run the
fuel pump. Plug the loose hose end, fuel will also shoot out of it,
that is normal. The fuel filter could have become plugged up with
pieces of the bladder from the fuel accumulater. Changing the fuel
filter did not cause this. Also make sure nothing is plugged into the
hot start relay plug over by the fuse block/relay area.
