Re: Need help please. 1998 sw1

If you have to, pull every fuse and examine them. The see-thru plastic shows good fuses with the S (fuse) element unbroken in one piece. When these blade fuses blow, the S element melts with a clear...

With the coolant cap off, engine idling, look into the coolant container. The t-stat does not stop coolant flow since the water pump runs non stop. If the t-stat stopped all coolant flow then the...

Re: 93 sw1 crapped out injection issues

Re: 93 sw1 crapped out injection issues

TBI? This requires a different testing method as the pressure regulator is a diaphragm within the TBI. A rebuild kit includes a new diaphragm and gaskets. One issue some in the past found with their...

Re: Cutting access port for fuel pump. Yes? No?

If you have AutoZone, call ahead. They have loaners too. It's worth the time and effort before committing to a major project whether cutting a hole or dropping the tank from second guessing.
