Re: [DML] Should air flap move freely down and up if I press on it?



Hi Ryan,
 
Don't try to push on the air metering flap.  It's possible to damage  the 
hinge or bend the plate.  It's most likely that the metering pin inside  the 
fuel distributor is stuck.  You best bet is to remove the fuel  distributor 
and try to free the pin, perhaps by soaking it in fuel system  cleaner and 
then using compressed air to blow the pin out the bottom and into a  rag - DO 
NOT damage the pin or let it fall on the ground.  If you nick it,  you will 
need to replace the whole distributor.  I have freed-up a stuck  pin this 
way before.  There is an O-ring under the distributor that will  probably 
have to replace, so buy one before you do this.

I have  been working on the fuel system. I have replaced the pump and 
filter and  confirmed fuel delivery to the fuel distrubutor. When I try and press 
down on  the air flap it does not move at all. Is this normal. I think it 
is stuck. Car  sat for 3-4 years with old gas. I have already removed the old 
pump and baffle  and replaced with new after cleaning out the tank. Added 3 
gallons of fresh  gas.
