No vote, as usual
Lets try to achieve something positive.
An electronic motor monitor which measures the necessary voltage to start the motor and the voltage to run the motor.
After this surpasses a set threshold, then a notification is shown on the SID, "re-new your FP motor", words to that effect.
Is this possible?
I would think so.
Does GM listen?
Had to love the '66 Chevrolet's version of a "notification" that its FP was failing.
Or a Ford Model A's signal of a FP conking out.
And I wonder that design the '10 Saab uses...
Mine died 40 miles from home. Had it towed home. Replace it with a bone yard unit. Died again 15 miles from home, my wife picked me up, went to the bone yard, grabbed a new unit from a 9000, replaced it on the side on the off ramp. I already had a hole in the floor. Been good ever since. knock wood.
Is this are only solution?
And when, at 100K?
Should I do the Honda as well(175K)?
Few will have the luxury of a driveway breakdown, as many of us have:cheesy:.
My FP seems to be so powerful that after I finally changed the filter and drained all of 0.15 liter from the lines, the subsequent start-up was the normal 2 -3 seconds...she did not miss a beat.:cheesy:
When you replace your fuel pump do you clean the pre filter??? If not the fuel flow will be constricted and the fuel pump will overheat and die prematurely.
Make sure you buy a good quality insert, apparently there are crappy ones out there that don't last too long.
Good luck :cheesy:
Died on a country road about 1000 miles from home, 153K. Repaired locally by great independent mechanic, for good price. Grateful to family for helping me out with the logistics and the $$ for travel, hotel and expenses - more than the cost of the repair. Whew!
