Fuel Pump starting to fail?
Posted by BHJ [Email] (more from BHJ) on Tue, 7 May 2019 06:04:33
Have a 1989 Saab 900 base model. I don't drive the car often but has acted a little weird lately. A couple times when accelerating, the RPMs dropped way down (almost to 0)--lower than the idle rpms-- and the engine started to shake---I took the car out of gear, put it back in gear, hit the gas and it seemed to be fine after that but it happened twice. Another time, when idling in neutral, the car randomly shut off--although it did crank back up and was normal the rest of the day. Last of all, sitting a couple weeks, there was an extended crank time (close to 10 seconds) before turning over. Does anyone else think this could be a sign of a fuel pump starting to fail or what else might it be?
