Hello I am sorry I have not been online here in awhile. Very busy with life. I recently decided to pull my 87 5Th avenue (318) out and get some maintenance things done with it. I got a Tune up, Tires, Shocks, Wiper bushings etc. I also was having an issue that started last year before I put the car away. When the car sits for a few days it didn't want to start. If you got the car running with starting fluid it was ok. If it was running it would restart with no issue. I believed it could be a small fuel line leak that was allowing the fuel lines to lose prime.
I took the car to a buddy and Mopar Mechanic. He was a service manager of a dealer than closed during the restructuring. I also noticed a fuel odor. The odor seemed to be coming from the front area around the charcoal canister area. My buddy checked the fuel lines multiple times found no leak. My car has never been in the snow so it has very little corrosion. We then visually checked the fuel vapor line hoses. Everything was intact. Car was running good until yesterday. The car fired up ok. I drove it a short distance, shut the car off and it was ok. Came back in about 15 minutes fired it up ok. Then it stalled. Again ran a bit stalled. I would get it running, it would start running like crap, then out. Finally it wouldn't start. No start with starting fluid or anything. FInally my buddy came over and we got it running with a good treatment of starting fluid. Got it home and parked it. We hypothesized a fuel pump.
I ordered a Mopar Performance fuel pump from Jegs. It said for all A/LA Engines. But I have some concerns. The pump has 1/4 inch fittings, according to the FSM my car has 5/16th. Also the pressure is 8.5 PSI. The FSM says 5.75 - 7.0 psi.
Will this pump work? Anything else I maybe missing?
