What is club gas? Why did you change the fuel pump? What is your fuel pressure? Don't say you pushed the valve with a screwdriver and is squirted please. If it had 10psi it would do that.

What codes are coming up? Need exact code numbers, not generic descriptions.

That's not how things are done. We systematically eliminate things/functions though testing. Your first test is to monitor the fuel pressure during the failure.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.

So you were at the club and a bunch of bar buddies where telling you to do things without even looking at it?

Gosh, could you give me $100 and i'll tell you to hold your lap top up to the engine and I'll use my psychic powers to tell you what is wrong with it?

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
