1994 STS HARD STARTING


Recommended Posts

1994 STS NORTHSTAR. Checked for codes, but have none. Fuel pump may have sounded loud - and resonating last week. Car used to start as soon as the starter kicked but now you have to crank it for 3-5 seconds straight. Car runs good after it is started. Can this be the fuel pump that I thought was loud last week. ANYBODY have any suggestions or ideas? THANKS, CHRIS :angry:

Check the fuel pressure regulator - remove the top cover, turn the key to ON but DO NOT start the engine. If there is gasoline at the fuel pressure nipple, the FPR is bad and needs to be replaced.

I just checked www.rockauto.com for a 98 STS and its $39 for the nylon fuel rail and $41 for the stainless fuel rail (both AC DELCO). I think the nylon fuel rails were recalled but I may be mistaken, they were on my 96.... I think the FPR pops out after removing a snap ring retainer, Mike

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

Ranger,

I may be mistaken, but I believe that Scotty ment $41 for the regulator that fits into a stainless fuel rail, not the fuel rail it's self.

There is a schrader valve on the fuel rail - remove the cap and depress the stem. Make sure the engine is cool and you have a rag handy to blot up the gas.

Yes, britt, I did mean the FPR, sorry, when I re-read my post I can see that it was ambiguous, Thanks
