Fuel pump volume /psi ? SOLVED

Post by wyoben »

Howdy, just a heads up for anyone chasing fuel delivery/PSI issues . I've been sorting thru a newly aquired orphan 1994 850 turbo wagon .To make a long story short...I had fuel at the rail, and the injectors ,but very Minimal PSI on my gauge .So my pump was running , both my relays for pump and injectors " Gray " main relays were good . I was hoping for an easy fix so I started to work my way back to the pump,via the filter,I pulled the filter outlet line and fuel was flowing decent .I plugged it off until my new filter arrived. Then into the tank to see if i needed to order a pump .I figured I was down for a few days waiting on parts so what the heck...it made my day to see a collapsed/decayed transfer hose ,from pump to sender nipple. I found the best 4" of bulletproof? fuel hose that I had and did the VOODOO to it and put it all back in a Jiffy.VOY-LA " Its Alive " running on all 5.I just wanted to thank Everyone at Matthew's site past , present and future for all the HELP.
P.S. Sure do miss my 740 ,when I drop a small pieces in this 850 engine bay , its GONE, pray that what you drop is magnetic ,or else bye bye... I need a fuel line retainer " Clippy " and a pres. reg to rail spacer ...

Glad you got it fixed! Nice work.

Funny what you say about the engine bay. When people ask me why i like working on 850s one of the answers I give is that there is room in the engine bay to climb in and access everything super easily. It's all relative to what you're used to I guess. Try working on a Japanese car, you *really* can't see/find anything in those engine bays.

You will never complain about Volvo once you work on your Aunts New Beetle but at least it isn’t a Miata..

Even the headlights are shoehorned in...
Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.
