Things can change quickly
I started out the day to get the van ready to haul some rebar from the shopping area. It started right up and I drove out of the carport fifty feet and the engine died and it wouldn’t start. Of course that meant I had to figure out what the trouble was now. The day can change so fast.
I got my volt meter out and found the manual on the injection unit. I first checked all the fuses to make sure everything was powered up and it was. I could hear the fuel pump run when I turned the key on so I knew that was working. Next I took the air cleaner off and turned the key on to see if any gas was coming out of the injectors. It did a little but then stopped so now I knew I wasn’t getting any gas.
I grabbed the fuel line on the pump and tested the lines for tightness. When I checked the fuel line on top of the fuel filter, I saw it turn a bit.
Ha ha, the clamp is loose letting air into the line.
I tightened up the clamp and tried the engine again, but no go. I checked all the other clamps on the fuel line and tried the key again and I heard gas coming into the injection unit and shortly it sprayed out the jets and the engine started. I think I just didn’t wait long enough after tightening up the first clamp for gas to fill up the fuel lines.
Might as well go shopping
Well now that that was working I got things ready to go get some more rebar.
After that I sat around a bit before it got dark.
That was my day and now I have more materials so I can keep working away on my projects.
