Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

I think the point of that was that if I disconnected the IAC, the car would start. By reconnecting it and it immediately lowered the RPMs, it indicated that it was working properly.

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

I was gonna double-check the thermostat, make sure it's opening at the right temp then I was gonna check the heater core for flow. If the hose going in is warm and the hose coming out is cold, the...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

I've got the same problem with the carbon buildup. I usually clean it every year but forgot to last year and the buildup was unbelievable.

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

Interesting you ask that. Once I get the car running, there is barely any heat. This was going to be my next item to tackle. I thought it odd since the water pump and thermostat were replaced...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

And it's not fixed. Temp finally dropped below 40 this morning. Turned the key, car just cranked. So I turned the key off, put the pedal to the floor and tried again. Cranked for a little bit...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

Put the new ignition module in this morning and it fired right up. Fired right up all day long as the wife took it to run some errands. Problem is the temp was above 40 degrees so I have no idea if...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

What part in particular? The ignition module? I did remove, clean, and re-install it to no effect.

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

Yes, there is one, but only have 2 Saturns. One from a flood, and one where the nose is all smashed up. I was just down there getting some other parts last Saturday. I also won't be able to get...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

Well, I did another fuel pressure test, this time while cranking. Fuel pressure was in the 45-52 range as it cranked. 52 while sitting there not cranking. This is with a new fuel pressure gauge...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

I do not believe the fuel pressure to be an issue. Prior to replacing the filter, the car had this problem.

However, with what I've read, I think I'll take the filter back to Advance - I think...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

I believe I have the old sensor to use for this test, if not, I will use the one in the car. I will do so tomorrow after work. Also, I will re-check the spark, looking for consistency while...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

Okay, the sensor was factory until I replaced it. The connector is also factory. The silicone may not actually be silicone. It is a clear substance that was under the small white cover of the...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

UPDATE: Hooked up my ScanGuageII and checked the temp sensors.
Coolant: 24 degrees F
Air: 24 degrees F
Transmission: 29 degrees F

Ambient temperature is 25 degrees F.

All temp sensors appear...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

How can I check the resistance across the connector and CTS?

Also note the CTS is the new brass style. Even the old one was. The silicone is factory sealant used in the connector.

I have no...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

UPDATE: After cranking the car at 2:30 PM (it is now 3:44 PM) I decided to check the fuel pressure once more - the simple test, depress the schrader valve.

No pressure! I repeat, I have no...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

Okay, after normal cranking, plugs are very wet with gasoline.

Upon visual inspection of the wiring to the CTS I see that the connector itself is completely encased. I opened the connector and...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

Well... the backfiring only occurs when I'm doing the "flooded mode start" where I put the pedal to the floor while cranking. It could be possible it's actually flooding and the lean condition is...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

Okay. Fuel pressure is still about 58 psi. Quick spray test reveals healthy spray of fuel with a lot of pressure after sitting for 1 hour.

Next test?

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

Thanks fdryer! I will definitely read up on EFI systems.

For now though, I need to figure out how to trouble shoot the current problem. I'm at my wit's end.

To refresh - car cranks but will...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

Well, I've been off all this past week so I've been driving the wife to work so she didn't get stranded when the temperature dropped.

Needed to fire the SL1 up so I can get it usable for her this...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

Yeah, throwing parts at it until it's fixed sucks. Is there some sort of diagnostic procedure for going through this EFI system? The other problem I have is no tools that one uses for specific EFI...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

As a 7-year auto mechanic, though back in the day of carburetors and points, this EFI stuff is confusing. Another thread I found had a guy who could get his car to start (same symptoms) by...

Re: Cranks for a long time before starting

When I start it by unplugging the IAC then plugging the IAC back in, it immediately lowers the RPM to about 1,200.

1 - Frikkin' cold weather makes vacuum connections brittle. Can I buy...
