Don't think battery cables. Crank is strong. - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
How can I check the fuel line pressure? What do I use to do this?
Last night while completely cold it started first try every time. I let it run some. Started right up over and over again like nothing wrong. It has not stalled or skipped or anything but run perfectly once started. Battery and starter seem very strong turning the engine as much as I want. I can hear the fuel pump priming quietly with rear seat up.
I have a Bosch CPS on the way although it's taking forever to get here as I am in south Florida and everything is a mess right now.
Various vacuum lines have been replaced over the years. I will look at them again and check for codes as well. Usually when I have had a vacuum leak it would run but just send me a code. It's possible while under the hood this weekend I knocked something loose. Thanks I'll check these as well.
I also plan on driving it around tonight without shutting off until I am back home just in case. Then test it at varying intervals of cooling down to see if it not start at some point. I don't want to trust it of course and turn it off somewhere else.
