Re: [DML] Fuel Issues---Planning trip to Orlando



Il check that but remember its more fuel related other than the engine cutting out more like not enough gas when I accelrate.
Is there a wire in there that controls the fuel pump?

Thx

Fuel pump would be an obvious one to check (incl inertia switch and the wiring to it, rpm relay - check for loose pins indicating a dry joint inside), coil wiring and all connections under the coil cover are worth checking too

I have already drained and cleaned out the fuel tank and refilled it with hi test gas. With no improvements, I changed the fuel filter and plugs about two years ago. Could it be the plugs or a fuel component like the CPR?
