I did it today, not bad.. cleaned injectors but still no start... fuel pump perhaps? Diag not giving any codes. Will try to run when spraying fogging oil while cranking.I just had the airbox off my 2008. It looks more complicated than it actually is. I used the service manual and it wasn't super clear from the diagrams but it turns out just to be the allen head bolts and the tubes just kinda snap off there. Sorry I didn't take pics or make a video.
Thnx for the insight im gonna order a set of plugs today.. I just posted this update on a diff site...You'll foul the plugs if you use a lot of that fogging oil. If you've already done that step previously, and everything seems to be moving ok, use a little stater fluid to see if it will run off it.
Really good info Jared i appreciate you taking the time to chime in.. i will post an update next time ive had a chance to do more work and what the outcome is.you will most likely need the fuel lines replaced. fuel that old turns to gel and clogs the lines and you won't get proper pressure. take pump out and run it on its own, just hook power and fuel lines up and pump it from one container to another. time it and measure volume and you can determine the flow rate (liter/hour) that it's pumping at to determine if its faulty or operating properly. it should also be at 46psi. i believe the flow rate is 60 lph so if you're below that, replace it. someone fact check me on the numbers there cuz i dont remember precisely.
fuel pump doesn't need to sound bad to be bad. replace fuel lines. hopefully injectors are clear and clean but ehhhh, would go in and check/clean/replace as well. anything fuel has been in that long needs to be cleaned.
Ahh, damn.. yeah the plan is to do a fuel pressure test when the weather breaks.. I'm sure soon as its decent out and 2020 spring is in sight I'm gonna be all over this thing as far as getting her goin.It's not 100% related but, I have bought new parts, installed them, and have them faulty from the factory and have to swap it out again for another new part. It's insanely frustrating but happens. Take it out and test it.
