The best way to check fuel pressure is to pull the line and stare down the hose as you turn on the engine JK, sounds like the best fix is a TDi.

So how long should it stay on when you turn the ignition on?

Really? that's not good. Yes it does pop through the intake.

I'm gonna buy a fuel pressure gage tomorrow and see if this is the problem first.

Ok, I will do that if the fuel pressure is fine.

Thanks,

P.S. Where can I get the tool to test the compression?

Hmm, there's a lot of good advice provided here but it sounds like your extrapolator is wearing out. It happens when your Defender doesn't get enough panties and/or thongs hitting the windshield. To fix it you need to drive alone & quickly to Fort Lauderdale. Now, be careful that you don't run into the "Girls-Gone-Wild" film crew because that might result in panty overload and your D90 might perform too well and blow a head. Just peruse around town for a while until the D90 is in tip-top-shape and you can head back!

Seriously, If it's backfiring through the intake especially when you accelerate then chances are you need a new cam shaft Yousef.

I agree that is exactly what my dads disco did when the fuel pump went out.

Also, the exhaust got red hot as it was running VERY lean. Be carefull how long/hard you drive it untill you get it figured out.

A cam is not the end of the world! Think of all the fun you will have when you put a hot cam & a remap of your ecu! I know it is big bucks but better in your driveway that on some remote rock someplace. GOOD LUCK!

Kinda sounds like a timming issue. Is your distributer loose? Also pull the dist. cap and see if anything looks funky, like carbon or metal flakes etc.

You just may have to go see your girlfriend Linda

Well, I'll listen to mine when I start it and I thought it was faster but I may be wrong.

You can always make your own. I cut my tub last time and covered the whole with aluminum plate. If my problem is the fuel pump all I have to do is remove the rear seat and carpet and I'm in business

That's exactly what my D90 did. I opened the hood and dang, that think was HOT. Let's hope it's the pump since I have a spare one in my garage.

IT'S ALIIVEEEEE! The problem was the sender hose in the fuel pump assembly. It was loose and couldn't build enough pressure. Went to pepboyz got 5/16" hose, clamps ($4). Put it together and the truck started right up, even faster than when it had the factory fuel pump. I am one happy person. Now need to start tackling the other problems.

Thanks for the help guys

Lucky SOB! A $4 fix! That's got to be some kind of record Yousef! Good to know that it wasn't a cam though!
