My 94 GS-R sat in the parking lot all day in the sun and it was about
90 in Chicago today. So the inside was pretty toasty when I got in.
The engine fired right up and I shifted immediately into reverse.
Before I could let out the clutch, it died suddenly. Cranked and
cranked but wouldn't restart. Opened all the windows, sunroof,
checked the fuses, took a call on my cell phone. Must have been
opened up for 5 - 10 minutes when I tried it again. It cranked for
about 5 seconds and suddenly started. Ran fine all the way home with
the AC on.
Does this sound like a fuel pump relay? (Also called "main" relay?) I
am thinking the car started with residual pressure and died as soon as
the pressure dropped. The relay started working after it cooled down
a little, but it took 5 seconds to pressurize the system before the
engine started. Has anyone else had this experience?
If it is the relay, is it totally unreliable at this point or is it
likely to keep working if it stays cool?
