not necessarily, i have had a few vehicles with electric fuel pumps and they wouldnt spray unless engine was turning overwilly J said:if its an electric he wont need to turn it over. once you apply power it starts pumping. just put the keys in the on position
actually, i dont think it is an intermittent problem, your post right before this one may have had your problem in it.cooper30 said:Whatever!?!
I just tried starting it (after messing around with wires and stuff) and the damn thing started up. Great, now I've got an intermittant problem somewhere along the line.
Ted, do one more thing. Disconnect the battery cable for a few minutes to clear your error codes, then reconnect it. If you start having problems again, recheck the codes and get back to me. This is a test to see if the Code 11 appears. It's kinda a long story on this Code 11, I'll have to write up a how to on it or an FAQ.cooper30 said:Thanks Chump. I checked the codes and now all I have is 12, 37, and 55...so nothing there. Thing is, I haven't driven it yet. I should be able to get back on the road this afternoon, so I'll see how it goes.
I'm going to replace the fuel filter tomorrow, so maybe (fingers crossed) that was the problem. I'm not a fan of "shotgun troubleshooting", but it's a filter, so it won't hurt to replace it anyway.
Thanks for the info about how the fuel pump works. I appreciate it.
