Suburban starts HARD!
This is a follow up to another post I put up. My 96 Suburban is giving me fits! When it hasnt been started for a day it cranks forever til the battery dies, I can get it to start by putting it on the charger on boost and letting it crank til it finally starts. After I get it started it will start for awhile taking a few seconds which is still longer than it use to and still seems to strain. This is what Ive done so far!
New plugs, wires, cap, rotor and cleaned battery cables, even replaced one questionable end.
Tested the TPS which seemed to be OK, I tested the Crank Sensor on and off the truck and although the test directions showed a different type of sensor the CPS seemed to be bad so I just replaced that today to the tune of 60$.
When I turn the key on I can hear the fuel pump working and when I put the fuel pressure tester on it, it shows between 40-50 lbs. I havent checked the pressure with the key on without starting it yet. Should I? The battery seems to be getting old and Im going to have to replace it either way but if it cranks over fine could it possibly be the battery?? Yea Im probably reaching now but Im pretty stumped!
I just checked the pressure with the key in the on position and its almost 60 lbs, can it have to much fuel pressure???
