    Fuel hard line leak. 505 STI

    I meant xn6 valve gasket set. I don’t think my t5 has a hconventional valve cover. But I’m starting to worry about it’s inaccessible turbo return line o’ring above the angle gear. its not overheating, but the white in the valve cover has me freaked. Though it rarely gets driven for any period of time. My initial drive home, I did get the engine pretty hot. The cooling fan relay had a loose ground. I may fill it up with royal purple in March, and clean the pcv screens. I wonder if throttle body cleaner would work. I’ve never done a head gasket. My torque wrench is super cheapskate. And the timing chain is daunting. No exhaust pressure from the overflow, but I didn’t rev the engine while checking. I think I read to avoid reving in park or neutral with this automatic. Snow predicted for this afternoon

    It’s across the street at my mechanic, with a box of parts. I’ve been giving a lot of thought to the moisture in the valve cover. I have my new radiator hoses sitting here. I also have a Volvo cover gasket set. I’m not sure if the pvc could cause that much condensation. Though the oil cap is missing a hose, which is just capped. could steam from that bunk upper hose have burst a coolant jacket? Do the aluminum xn6 blocks or heads crack?

    That Bosch pump isn’t too expensive either, from rock auto. I got the walbro for $50 off craig’s List. The tank primer pump came from eBay and is a pieterburg with strainer for $15. Hoping the appropriate fittings don’t cost me the difference. bought a used volvo fuel relay for $8. Might get a new uro parts brand as a spare for the trunk.

    505 Newb Sayin Hi!

    In having the same kind of fuel system issue with my nx6 86 Sti. I have a Haynes book. It’s lousy. I’ll flip through it when I get a chance and see what I can find. it had nothing useful related to the fuel pump.

    Any idea what size the banjo bolts are? They sell 10mm, 11, 12, 13mm. I’m fairly certain.

    eBay recommendation was 190, the 255 lph was also a common suggestion. walbro’s website says “2.64 horsepower per lph” they say it’s rated at 40psi on one website. 70psi seems extreme.

    I’m hoping the 255lph will cut the mustard. The kid I got it from was going to use it on a fuel injected corvette What does the throttle position sensor do on this car? Could that be contributing to my issue? Could it cause a non-starting condition?

    I checked the 20amp fuse behind the radio, which was fine. I’d like to move that fuse to the ashtray. Purchaser a 255 lph welbro pump on craigs list. A used Volvo tachymetric fuel relay arrived. But I’m still waiting on a tank primer pump, nos carter brand, made in Germany. sUpposed to fit a VW, no fuel level sender. Missing it’s pigtail, so I ordered a generic eBay Female Deans T-Connector, which should hopefully do the tricK.

    Fuel hard line leak. 505 STI

    I’m thinking I should just get a new pump installed while it’s there. p60424 airtex e8150 gsl392 kit? Any pump recommendations? There’s some fuel getting from the tank to at least the accumulator, enough to drip from the leak, which has me considering a bad lower pump. There wasn’t any pressure on the line between the rear of accumulator and possibly the return/supply Is the tank pump available? Any part numbers? could I use a Volvo pump with an attached regulator reservoir In lieu of the in tank pump? Can the in tank pump be left in place even if it isn’t working? Or would the dead pump impede the second pump?

    Thanks Bean. I googled it. Search is tough on this site. It’s just a plug and play part? I ordered the Uro parts brand relay, or actually it may be Volvo 3 523 639 , used from eBay. We’ll give it a whirl for $8. one of those compression fitting from the line replacement had a drip. The one between the accumulator and possibly return line, a wye shape of metal line. we’re expecting a snow storm this weekend. I’m glad it’s not dead in my gravel driveway, but the clink the auto transmission made from neutral to whatever gear while being loaded on the flatbed will make me think twice if there’s a next time. Part should hopefully be here before he needs to move it to see the leak, and hopefully this gets it moving. Couldn’t find one local.

    tachymetric relay? Is it a Commonly available relay? I was playing with the fuel leak. I’m pretty sure I’m spent a moment with the key inbetween position one and two. While trying to get the leak to drip. the AAA kid said he felt the pump wasn’t consistent turning on. The pump had been running super loud in the morning.

    No start today! Thought it was flooded, but the plugs weren’t fouled. Find a drip between the accumulator and possibly the return line, tightened the clamp. fuel pump has been screaming, but I was hearing nothing today. It started, I moved it, but no restart. The pump is next to the fuel filter and accumulator? if I really cranked the car and held down the pedal, it would sputter. there was a ton of mayo under the oil filler. But the plugs were pretty alright looking. had it towed to the mechanic. There was a bit of a mouse nest above the fuel tank. There’s a black wire but also a loose yellow/green with a copper spade on it, hanging free. What should I use as a replacement fuel pump? can I get away with just a single pump near the accumulator? What’s in the tank? I was looking at the little air vacume thing near the fues box. And noticed a couple missing hoses. I placed my fingers over the vacume line nipples. Could I have triggered something? It was running at that time, but with a slightly lower than normal idle. Hope I didn’t mess with the distributor somehow with the vacume?

    The smell seems to be from the charcoal canister corner of the car. But I haven’t really found a leak or anything yet.

    I’m still smelling fuel. I’ll have to find the vent lines. It doesn’t seem to be coming from the trunk. Maybe it’s the charcoal canister. its too cold. I’m registering the car tomorrow. And it need to be inspected. My mechanic said he’d get it inspected.

    I've been meaning to post a photo of the replaced fuel lines, filter, and accumulator. I'm going to see if I can get a cap and rotor from my local parts shop, and ill install the new plugs. What torque spark plug value should I aim for on the xn6? What is the engine head made of? Are the head chambers hemispherical?
