Wont catch fire!!!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys second time having this problem, car is a Impreza sedan 93. A few weeks ago my little bro borrowed my car to go to his training, he came back while it was pissing down, told him to take it back to my mums he started it up he got 1/4 of a way down the street and it straight cut out. I tried to start but it just rumbled like it was having fuel problems. Over the next three weeks I pulled the fuel pump plug out left it for a week hooked it back up and gave it a jump start and away it went till monday the 12/09/16. Now it wont catch fire, it is starting but again no catch. I have replaced the fuel pump early last year so could it be something else?

Ive checked the fuel pump plug but it aint that, also pulled the fuel line off as recomended by a local and tried to start and it should have spat fuel out but it didnt. So from the fuel pump maybe to the relay is my problem.

It could be just a crap fuel pump, did you replace it with genuine Subaru or a wrecker pump or a chingaling special?

 

Get a multimeter, set it to volts, put it on the fuel pump connector. Turn key to On. If you get 12v or thereabouts then the pump is shagged, if you don't then it's the relay.

boon. No fuel pump has been replaced last year from a subaru specialist and a genuine part from Sublab in Whangarei. I think might be the relay.
