Have any DTC's "check engine light" been set?

I assume it's running rough?

well the ck eng lite has been on since I got it over 2 years ago and had it diagnosed as some type of secondary emmissions valve/relay?? cant remember but was told it shouldnt affect performance and it hasnt. my symtoms now are easy start when cold but when just shut off to run into store and come back out I have to depress the gas pedal a small amout while cranking to get it to start, it doesnt do it all the time but most of the time,also when excelrating I feel a slight stumble as soon as I depress the pedal to leave the stop light, Ive run several cans of seafoam hopeing it might just be dirty but no help, ive been told its not uncommon for this engine to have these issues in the 140k mile range. hope this helps.. maybe I can get going in the right direction..

Sounds more like it could be a fuel pressure regulator problem.

I'll second the regulator. It would be the first suspect on my list of things to check.

The first thing I would do is hook up a fuel guage. If pressure drops. Than I get out the inspection mirror. If you hold the throttle open and stick the mirror into the intake pointed towards the rear of the car you can see the drips of gas comming out of the regulator if it is leaking.

This is a fairly simple repair to do. I can give you step by steps if you think you would like to tackle your self.

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
