engine cutout NG motor
Gday to you all.
Thanks to all those who responded to my electric mirror enquiry. I am yet
to fix the problem.
Something more urgent has occured yesterday. Yesterday was a very hot day
~35'C or more.
My engine cuts out on a day's like this. This started happening about a
month or so ago. Thinking it was the fuel pump I replaced it, week later
I replaced fuel pump relay.
Now I don't know what could be causing it.
When the engine died I manually jumpered the fuel pump and I heard it
going, but the engine still would not start, it was just turning over ...
at least something. The engine temperature was not any higher normal.
So far I got stranded on four occasions, allways on a hot day 30'C and
plus. Luckily allways I was able to roll off road , then after 10-15
minutes the engine starts OK, and I can keep going. Its starting to drive
me mad. I was fortunate enough not to get stranded on the Harbour Bridge
also known as coat hanger, but there is always a possibility. :-)
Due to my lack of experience I now thing it might be something to do with
fuel pressure, but I have no idea how to test for that. Or what else to
Did anyone have any similar experience(s)?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
