Tried that. Wired 12v direct to the pump to keep it on. Same business.IZU069 wrote:Maybe power the fuel pump(s) direct in case they are not being kept on.
Correct. Could the distributor still be at fault?IZU069 wrote:I assume you have the ITEC ECU (optical distributor; locked)
Well, my fuel pressure is still high, but from everything I have read, high fuel pressure should not kill the engine. It might run at high RPM and run rich, but the engine should not die. Low fuel pressure is a different story however.IZU069 wrote:But you should NOT be getting an over-high fuel pressure. Either the pressure regulator is wrong, or there is a return blockage. (Or your fuel tank shares the same pressure!)
But others are more knowledgeable on that issue.
I dropped the fuel tank, cleaned it out, let it dry, replaced any remaining rubber that I did not replace already, new fuel filter, pressure regulator, damper, and blew the lines out, both feed and return with my compressor. Not blockage as far as I can tell.
There is something telling the car to shut off. Its got to be an electrical issue. Something like a fail safe or something. Its the only thing that makes sense. I have not tried replacing the distributor, but my timing is good and dead on now.
