Re: EA fuel help

More detail, is it CFI or MPFI for a start, and by using lots of fuel how many k's per tank are you getting, are most k's done around town or open highway.

Welcome to the forums as well.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: EA fuel help

so let me see then, you fill it up, drive 40k's and its empty, not what the fuel gauge shows, but actual k's.

Sounds like the injectors are pouring fuel in, what do the spark plugs look like, does it idel high or around 700rpm, auto or manual, does it drive well, or is it slugish, can you smell fuel in the exhuast or not, any mods that you know of or have done.

Re: EA fuel help

I would probably without seeing the car or being able to look at it, get the injectors serviced/cleaned or as it only has 2 injectors being a CFI, it is probably as easy dollar wise to just replace them and see how things go.

I cant think of anything further, maybe the map sensor, but you sat it runs ok, have tried running the diagnostics t see what codes it spits out.

Re: EA fuel help

Easy way that may work is run premium fuel for a 1/2 a tank, must be in empty when you fill it, also maybe throw in an injector cleaner as well, see what happens, but thats about all you can to clean injectors at home, proffesional equipment and chemicals are needed if what I suggested doesnt help.

Re: EA fuel help

Apparently those CFI injectors are best being replaced by new genuine than cleaned to improove the economy
