Hey y'all, any advice appreciated.
About 2 years ago i replaced my fuel pump with a "Spectre" brand. Issues I was having was hot restart problems and my fuel sender float was giving wrong readings. After I replaced it both those things were fixed and everything was well in the fuel system department.
Anyways about 3 weeks ago I started having problems. Car sometimes doesn't start on first crank, it will start then immediatly stall out. I try cycling the key to "on" to build fuell pressure but that doesn't even work. Also when I go WOT I am pretty much dead power wise which I suspect is due to low fuel pressure. My fuel filter has been replaced within the last year so I don't believe that's it.
I don't have a fuel pressure test tool so I can't really confirm that the pressure is low, does anybody know an alternate way to check the fuel pressure? I have a ELM ODB tool but that isn't exactly accurate as far as fuel pressure. I realy don't want to pop the $45 bucks for the guage or the price of a diagnositc at a shop. Thanks for any advice anybody has.
