Re: Won't idle after a short drive

So far I have checked the fpr it holds a solid 25psi. checked the vam and seems to be doing right, looked over the vacuum lines and can't find anything. Not saying this is the issue, but 25psi is way too low. Pull vacuum line off when idling, set fuel pressure to 38-42psi, put vacuum line back on. ...

Idle is still a little high but better than it quiting. Thanks for the recommendations Sorry I said pf3 in my origi...

Make sure you have a wrench that fits it.
👍

Guess that's what to expect after 30+ years. Now gonna replace all the much needed vacuum lines.

Best way to change the O2 sensor?

Gonna change the O2 sensor since it's the OEM and was just wondering if there is a good/more helpful way to change it? It being in the car for so long thought maybe warm up the exhaust some first, spray it down with WD40 or just good ole elbow grease.

Re: XR4ti won't start! Any suggestions?

The pump kept running, I tried changing the PCM ,unhooked the battery and got one of my two spare PCMs(the PF2) un...

Re: XR4ti won't start! Any suggestions?

Update: Changed coil and cap still no fire. Probably change the module next. Gonna pull the inline filter and see how nasty it is, I know it needs to be changed anyway. Just can't figure out why the intank pump keeps running and doesn't prime and stop? Like it's not building enough pressure(weak or ...

Re: XR4ti won't start! Any suggestions?

Thanks for the suggestions, I'm gonna check/change out some of those. I have a lot of extra used parts from several parts cars over the years. I have a milk crate with about 5-6 distributors, two ECMs (PF2 & PF3) plus an extra good fuel tank I was gonna replace it with from a 40k xr that was wrecked...
