ur-q Hot Start Problems
I had a hot start problem on my '83 TQC turned out a previous owner had hit
something on the highway which totaled the fuel pump and pressure
accumulator. He replaced the fuel pump but not the pressure accumulator, I
replaced it with one from a coupe and had no more problems. I believe the
pressure accumulator retains fuel pump pressure between starts using a
diaphragm, this may have failed? Even with no accumulator I only ever had
hot start problems.
The above scenario is a bit of a long shot, so maybe:-
Fuel Injector cooling fan operation (I am dubious how useful this thing is)
Leaky fuel injectors.
Fuel Pressure Regulator.
I am assuming the starter motor is turning over and the solenoid engaging?
