Tanya,we miss you . I'll sign in for them: Mike,Rich,Shawn,Aaron,Matt.Those are the REAL names that they were born with. Sign in names? Avatars?Nick names?
Geez,Hi,my name is Dave Cowger.I live in Seattle,WA.I own an '84 "L" type Supra (for the last 6 years).CS.com has been my BAIL OUT place for 6 years.Helpful,nasty,brutally cruel,fun,friendly,nice. My ass has been kicked here more than once.If you don't play nice,it will happen.
Bypass the fuel pump relay and check voltage to pump wires.Measure fuel pump line pressure--NOT with your fingers.B-4 the fuel filter. Yes,diagnostics is the MOST difficult part of automotive repair."What's wrong?" It usually takes a few opinions to point you in the right direction,people.
Sorry again,but people can train Chimpanzees to screw and unscrew a nut and a bolt. I have "technicians" at work that cannot do much more.
They cannot diagnose a problem with a bent soda straw. "It's broken!". Is it plugged in? Does it have power to work?Is there a brain of a human,here?
"It won't start,it's a bad fuel pump" It won't crank,it's a bad starter,The headlights won't turn on,the headlights are burned out. Gimme some:32: more....

LOL

I remember when I used to be the "throw money at it" type, assuming every issue was the worst, and diagnosing things backwards. Sure don't miss those days.

You need to keep a bigger supply of bananas.

How about a running issue where it sputters like it's out of gas when going hard around left hand turns? Not right hand, and it doesn't die completely. Not my car, asking for a friend.


Edit, having him check main relay #1, battery connection, and the coil.

Sounds like it would be something internal in the gas tank. Internal fuel pump? Possibly the sock on the pump is clogged on one side only.

Other possibilities that come to mind include excessive movement of the engine causing a vacuum or air intake leak. Also make sure the battery is tied down good and not pulling the ground cable on left turns.
