Leaking Power Steering Pump

So I just uncovered my triple white for a little summer fun, gave it a good clean and ran it through inspection which it passed after sitting up for a year! Sadly I noticed that it's bleeding a little power steering fluid from the pump. I'm only going to be driving it for a couple of weeks before I ...

Re: Cold start tick-over problem

Yeh, the only good thing is that each time I do some work on the car, no matter how annoying or how fiddly, it's always that much more pleasant and satisfying to drive afterwards. 8)

Re: Cold start tick-over problem

Me too, it was just such a tricky one to track down... As always though, straight out of one problem into another. The clutch cable tube on the pedal cluster bracket snapped off today so I had to strip all of that junk out, re-weld it and put it back together. :banghead: It's hard having these cars ...

Re: Cold start tick-over problem

Solved. It was the warm up regulator. Thank you for all your help and suggestions.

Re: Replacement fuel injector return line?

Yes, it's the return line from the warm up regulator. It's possible there's a donor car local to me with one, but I won't be able to find out until Monday, but I certainly appreciate you looking.

Thank you.

Replacement fuel injector return line?

Whilst continuing to trouble shoot my cold start tick over problem (http://www.toplessrabbit.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1847) I broke the return line from the pressure regulator. Any ideas where I can get one of these in a hurry? I've tried all the local autoparts dealers and they're stumped, I'...

Re: Cold start tick-over problem

Yeh it was pretty crazy in places, i'm in midtown and we didn't see much but rain... What are your symptoms? You are still CIS with the 89 right? I work in theatre so my schedule is totally screwy, but would be happy to try and troubleshoot with you when I get a spare day! Do you get to midtown much...

Re: Cold start tick-over problem

ok cool, I'll check that out, my brother is sending me a reconditioned regulator anyhow so maybe that'll save time trying to clean mine... Thanks for your insights again, I think we're getting closer to solving this!!

Re: Cold start tick-over problem

Ok, some progress. I've checked the 5th injector, and it is behaving as it should. Good spray pattern, cutting off after 10-15 seconds. This makes sense because the car always starts first time, and then dies, so it's obviously starting on the fuel that the 5th injector is providing, and then is dyi...

Re: Cold start tick-over problem

Ok, thanks again all. I've been so busy lately that I've just had to keep driving the car :rmad: and it's using a LOT of fuel which leads me to believe it must be a flooding issue of some sort. I will go through all these suggestions, hopefully this weekend, but I just wanted to add in the additiona...
