Thread: Hard Start Hot

  1. #1

    Default Hard Start Hot

    I have the Pro-Jection 2D installed and it was running well, until the other day when I shut the car off at the store and could not get it restarted. It seemed to flood out. After checking things out I found a vacuum line disconnected. I rechecked TP voltage, supply voltage to relay with key-on and in crank, checked all grounds, rechecked fuel pressure (14 psi) at WOT. The injectors do not seem to shut off the fuel and it seems to make a hot engine restart hard. TP voltage at WOT is 4.8V, they are the old style injectors. Is it manually hold throttle wide open, engine will start after a bit of cranking. After a cold start, engine runs great until shut off it will just not restart. Anyone have any tips or ideas of what to check next? Thanks.

    What system do you have? You can't give too much detail, but can't help without a full picture. Danny might actually be able to read minds, but I need info.

    You may need to increase the fuel pressure. (Early Pro-Jection 2D Manual - Fuel Pressure, Page 14) (Late Pro-Jection 2D Manual - Fuel Pressure, Page 27)
