Fuel Pressure Issues on 1750 GTV - Norman SPICA
Started right after putting a full tank at BP. Gas overflowed while car sitting idle for a few minutes. Put the car away, next day car began to sputter at about 3,000 rpm and barely could keep the car running. I noticed that the fuel pressure light stayed on continuesly and while the car would start, it would warm up to 3000/3500 rpm and fall right down.
I started out by changing the Rear Fuel Filter - no change.
Then I changed the Engine Fuel Filter - no change.
I purchased a nice pump from Centerline that provides plenty of pressure. Right after installing the pump, car's rpms would snap right up to 6000 and up and no fuel pressure light.
Today I added a full tank of gas and once again, fuel pressure light on at all times and car runs like crap again, sputtering and not getting correct fuel pressure.
I noticed the following: Turning the ignition key, the Gerenator light does NOT come on. Turning the car on, the fuel pressure light goes on immediately and the Gererator light stays on.
There must be something going on with either a fuse gone bad...... an electrical connection......pressure from the gas tank ??????
Anyone - thanks,
