Ned decided he didn't wanna start again... Took him to a shop 3 weeks ago, and they had him for two weeks with my phantom no start issue. He wouldn't die for the first few days, then he finally died, and they confirmed it was a fuel delivery issue. Then they needed to get my permission to run additional tests on him but I was at work. I called them back a few hours later and gave permission for him to be hooked up to a "scope test" which would pinpoint WHICH part of my fuel system had failed... Ned for over 10 days wouldn't die on them while hooked up to the scope test... So they dropped the additional fees and told me that he was running fine and to bring him back in when he died... They gave me a list of what was done:
Notes: Isolated all subsystems to verify source of problem, but vehicle has started and ran as it should since.
Verified that when cranking, RPM sensor sends message to PCM to activate fuel pump. Vehicle starts and the sensor is no longer involved (disconnected sensor and did not affect vehicle running)
Problem could be:
Where should I start? My idea was to start with the ignition switch because I can remove the key while driving and turn it off with a screw driver ---- although the car requires the key in the ignition to start
Where is the fuel pump relay located? I had read it was under the hood, and labeled, but mine was not labeled to my knowledge?
Vehicle is a 1986 Subaru GL Sedan. 5 speed D/R. 190k miles on EA82 engine with weber carb minus emission systems/vac lines
