I would live to brag that the van started with the first turn of the key, but that was not the case. We had some doubts on two relays, and it was a 50-50 chance, swapping the relays she started with that first turn of the key...

Last night I drove the van for the first time. It run really strong, but then it started bucking, starving of fuel.

I think my fuel pressure regulator is kaput! Last night we replaced the fuel pump, and removed the pre-filter, and went with a bigger fuel filter kit behind the fuel pump. We were in process of test driving the van, and final adjustments, and after 20 miles or so, it started bucking. We pulled over, and while cycling the fuel pump we noticed that the FPR is bypassing too much fuel, and we were starving the engine...... Hm... Is that even possible? When manually operating the fuel pump (key on, AFM wiper move), the FPR is making a lot of swooshing sounds... as in fuel rushing through it.

A clamp to FPR inlet hose later, and we were back on the road with no issues............

Could it be fuel pressure regulator or could it be something else showing its ugly head?

Several nights ago I cleaned the main ground, and re-plugged every sparkplug wire connector into the distributor cap. I also moved the ECU ground, and condenser and positive connectors on the coil so they don't bind or cross in anyway. 30 mile ride to friends house, and no issues.

While talking to my buddy about AFM, and contemplating running a new ground from the wiper to the AFM male connector, we noticed that the wiper is a bit lopsided and barely touching the ground. Touching the wiper in a negative way, pun definitively intended, and the engine produced same symptoms of fuel hay-wire, and backfiring. A quick bend job, and now the AFM plug ground is making full contact with the wiper blade. No issues so far.

Only time will tell how successful this was. I stopped by a gas station and got another 12.5 gallons of gas on about 200 miles.... not bad for a first tank of gas, and getting things all worked out and broken-in....

So far I have put 140 miles since the ground fix, and there have been no episodes of bucking.

Here is someone from Porsche 944 forum, cleverly fixing the problem once and for all:



You see the problem was between that very thin wiper blade that runs along the shaft, where it meets the big round copper run.
