SR5 Fuel Primer Issues


Recommended Posts

hey there,

i have some reoccurring start issues when im parked facing uphill, or when i havnt starter her for a day or so. all signs point to a fuel-flow issue. for example, if i manually prime the fuel pump prior to starting, i dont have this issue. but manually priming the pump before starting up every morning just isnt practical.

i was considering installing a switch on the dash to act as an electronic primer. the switch would just temporarily put power to the fuel pump circuit before start up. but im a little worried about other issues i could create by doing so.

has anybody else had this problem or done something like this? is there any risk of over-presurising the lines?

any help or insight would be much appreciated.

Sorry but what do you mean by u/s? Well the pump and primer have done close to 300,000km's. Mechanics thought it might be solved by an injector service but I just can't afford that at the moment. Do you think maybe installing a new fuel pump and primer might fix it?
