[DMCForum] Re: Jai's Starting Problem



As I recall the engine started immediately and ran well after main
line pressure built up (jumped RPM relay, car not energized, engine
cold), so I don't suspect CPR.

How old is your pump? Have you ensured that everything in the tank is
100%? How long has it been since the fuel filter was replaced?

A totally disfunctional accumulator piston seal could also allow fuel
to shoot right back to the tank. Pull the rubber hose off the back of
the accumulator, run a temporary hose into a suitable container, and
jump RPM relay again. Ideally nothing should come out. If you get a
steady stream, that is your problem.
