I've been reading about stalling and starting problems here and a lot of the
problems I've seen are quite similar to what I have going on with the
exception of my car coughs and chokes and belches black smoke like crazy.
If by some chance the car actually catches and runs it's likely to die at a
stoplight and won't start back up for a good 12 hours.
The car turns over and tries to start, but it seems like it's getting WAY
too much gas (fuel injected). Replaced the spark plugs, etc. and that
didn't help. Any ideas on where to start looking?
Along with posting to this message board I spent all day yesterday on
various sites on the net researching what might be causing the problem and
the general consensus was exactly what you said, so I took a chance and
spent the money on a new one. And like I said before, it did help, it just
didn't fix the problem completely.
The one that came off the car had what looked to be a place to adjust it on
the top, but the new one doesn't. We don't have a guage to check the fuel
pressure but we can smell the gas when we try to start it. I don't know if
that has anything to do with the fuel pressure, but it would seem like it
