Trying to help a neighbor. She went to the grocery store yesterday and when
she came out her car would not start. Cranked fine, but not even a hit.
Sounded like dead ignition or no fuel. Took her and the groceries home,
grabbed some tools and went back. About half way there it started to rain
hard, so I came back. This morning I hitched up the car trailer and went to
get it. It started right up?? Car has 86 K miles on it, had 1/4 tank of
fuel. I filled the tank just to check the fuel gauge and it seems right. Now
I'm wondering when and where it will quit again.
Is this typically a fuel or ignition issue? Just trying to be better
prepared next time.
There is a service port to check fuel pressure. It says it's a 6 MM bolt. Is
that right? Do I have to make a bolt or can I find a fitting for this? Where
can I get the washers for the various banjo fittings?
