  1. Son the 90 Caddy we found the problem. There is a check valve in the sending unit assembly that keep the vent line from sucking in fuel from the return line. It went bad when we changed the pump. Right now I have the line blocked off as is is hot at heck here and I don't want to stress my guy in the heat. Next month I'll order the part and have him put it in.
  2. So we've been looking at things on the car, never did do a fuel pressure test because we found that there is a leak. The vapor tube from the gas tank that runs to the emissions canister up at the front of the car is pulling fuel up to the canister. So we pulled the tank again to see If there was a kink somewhere but nothing. We changed out the fuel filter because weirder things have happened to me when it comes to my vehicles. But it is still doing the same thing. Any ideas on this! Karen
  3. So I've only had this car since Feb. A friend gave it to me after my old car gave up the ghost. It only had 56000 miles on it and it's in almost perfect condition. So with that amount of miles it hasn't been driven much and now that it's my daily driver it's not liking this the guy working on it is a mechanic at Honda but he's a younger kid, in his 30s so he's not too up on the older stuff. I have talked to my 2 brothers, my old mechanic from Las Vegas and the guy I got the car from. They didn't have any ideas. They're all older guys. We did replace the fuel pump. It died on the wa
  4. So he doesn't have a fuel pressure gage but he is going to get one. But he checked the fuses and the relay and it's looks good. He pulled the vacuum line off the regulator and did the paper bag thing and no fuel spitting . He looked the pumps over before he put the new one in and they were the same fittings. Anything else you can think of?
  5. I'll have him check it out tonight when he gets home. Thanks for all this info!
  6. Unfortunately with the covid thing I'm tight on money. If I have to replace it I will do that.
  7. I bought an Autobest pump from Rockauto.com. Will it make a difference if it's not under load at the 2k rpm? The guy who installed pulled the tank a second time to make sure al the connections were good. He's going to get a fuel pressure gauge with a long hose so he can check it while I'm driving. It wouldn't surprise me if the pump was bad. The strangest thing happen to my vehichles. As for codes it's not throwing any.. But it gets me to and from work with a minimum of fuss until I can get this figured out. Thanks for the help.
  8. It is the 4.5. The pressure regulator was checked and I was told it's working fine. The only problem there is that when it idles it idles fine. When I step on the throttle it will act up. I'll have to see if it will miss when im in park and rev it. Thanks for the reply!
  9. The fuel pump went out and I had it replaced along with the screen and fuel filter. Then when the car got warm it spits, sputters, hesitates and sometimes dies. If it dies it does start again right away, sometimes it's a hard start. If the windows are up i smelled fuel when this happens. I replaced the injectors 2 days ago and thought i had the problem licked but it started the same thing again today. I did not have this issue before replacing the pump. I did not have the windows up today (gorgeous day in So Cal) so I don't know if there was a gas smell like last time. The mechanic
