Re: [T3] Fuel Trouble!

<x-charset iso-8859-1>If I am not mistaken there are only 3 things that effect the mixture with
the FI system....

1. Pressure Sensor: Suck on the hose and see if the diaphragm holds

2. Fuel Pressure: Check with fuel pressure gauge at the appropriate spot,
and adjust the regulator to 28-32 psi

3. Engine Temp (primarily the engine head temp sensor) More resistance in
the snesor = richer mixture, I think a hot sensor is supposed to read less
than 1k ohms.

links on the D-Jet system
http://www.914fan.net/djet.html  good explanation here. I learned a lot by
reading this guide thoroughly
