Oh, well, that's boring, hmm, oh, that's. A lot of oil, I, don't know to say at this point all right boys. We finally got it.
We finally got our little test gauge right here. I'm, not sure a brand-new biz, but I just got it at the local map, but they had to order it in took a little longer than expected. But we got it here. It's a nice little gauge. You can see it has a little relief hose I have it running onto my can right here screw on to this little Schrader valve just fine here on the fuel rail on the DTS. There was actually no pressure in it already.
And nothing is coming out here, and I know that it worked because as I screwed it on just a tiny bit of the gas leaked out, even though they tell you to always depressurize the system. And now that I have the gauge I'll always hook up if I can and make sure when I did the fuel pump on. Can you see it?
You see it that car the daily crews were out there? Um, when I did the fuel pump on that I didn't, depressurize it or anything I just unhooked it from the top. Of the sending unit it looks few little dribbles, the gas came out, but it was no big deal. So not really something to worry about.
But it is handy to have the gauge now I'm, really hoping we can use it on the PT GT and somehow hook up to the fuel rail and kind of see what's going on with our fuel pump. If you guys didn't see the last episode I will link it up in the corner right now, you're going to want to go check that video out because that will not only tell you the story behind what's going on with. The DTS right now, but it'll tell you about our recent struggles and why I'm checking out the fuel pump on this car, but the fuel rail on these cars is deep in here, it's below the intake, manifold and kind of be low if the upper radiator hose you see, this is the fuel line right here that has the braided insulation on it.
It runs down. It hooks up right there. You can kind of see underneath our water neck right here for the radiator that's, the end of it right?
There I'll point the little red arrow to. The end of the fuel rail right there, but it's hard to get to from my understanding. There is actually some sort of test valve on the end I'm, not seeing anything unless that's like some sort of magical cap that goes over it, which I doubt, my understanding was that the first generation or like the early cruisers had come sort of Schrader valve or something on the fuel rail. And then for the second generation, they changed the rail design. And in the fuel line design and everything just a little and. There, wasn't actually straight about on it anymore, which would kind of suck, but it looks like unless I'm mistaken there's, not one here, but I'm gonna look in the manual in just a second to confirm that if not I will probably try to create my own valve or something maybe in the fuel line or something maybe we could somehow splice into the nylon line and put a gauge in it, I've seen people do that a lot that would be kind of cool. If we end up doing that, but I'm really hoping that there's something.
Here that I'm missing, and we can go ahead and plug in, so I'm going to check that, and I will continue on with this lengthy minutes later, okay, I looked in the manual. And there is a test port it's over on this side of the fuel rail, which makes sense, but it doesn't at the same time because there's a little of room over on the side to reach that end, this end, no room, but I am able to see it, but I look just right. Let me see if I can get a light on it. So that you guys can see, you could almost see it I.
Don't think I can get it on camera, but it's, right like I, don't, even know it might be me, it's like almost touching the dipstick for the transmission and there's a wiring loom that runs there kind of could push it back. And you can touch. If I don't even know if I can get like a pair of pliers in there to remove the cap it's freezing out, and it's late at night and I have videos to edit. So I'm going to do that.
But tomorrow morning we're going to come out actually figure everything out I'm too cold for. This crap, right now, good night, guys, I ended up removing the upper radiator hose actually to go ahead and get the test gauge on there it's just too tight as you can see the hoses already squished up against the intercooler piping I could have removed that it might have been easier if I didn't remove this pipe here. The other thing is I was just assuming this pipe would not flex at all, but it might, I feel like it wouldn't. It flexed enough to begin, but gets us on the upper hose I was able to just. Undo it obviously I had to deal with the coolant draining out a little, but I'll, just top it off, push it up all the way, and I was able to get it on 52 pounds, 52 pounds, just from priming the pump once trying to pump again.
And we have at about 56 psi of pressure in the line. So that's that's a little better. It looks like that's, right about where that's going to stay. And according to what I'm seeing online 58, plus or minus a few is right, which should be.
So we look pretty good. Okay. Well, it looks like. We're holding the pressure numbers exactly that we should be, so I don't want to say at this point, cars, still misfiring. So it looks like it's, not an issue with the car running lean and having low fuel pressures bitching to test out this relief valve, because that car had no pressure in the system when I tried to use it, oh, well, that's boring.
So initially from our first pressure check, it looks like there's, not something wrong with the fuel. Pump I probably should still try to hook a multimeter up to.It is somehow just to make sure, but a couple other things that I've been checking in the meantime, I actually got my little camera out here and took a look down in here, because something else a lot of people have said, it could potentially be an issue is this main harness I, believe, it's, orange one right here, but it's. The second one in from the left, it goes down under the intake and down here as you can see there's a lot of stuff that runs off of if it's, a main harness that goes to like this sensor. It. Goes to our injectors, wires run up to the coil from there a bunch of wires that run off it and go up to a lot of important stuff and down to the injectors and everything like I said, and it runs down on top of the transmission down here and kind of see here on this screen, there's just a mess of different wire looms down in here. And while you're going off, you can see is the main battery power wire right there, and I've been looking around for the past like 15 minutes with this camera, just kind of.
Poking around and zooming in on different things that look suspicious, and I don't, see anything it doesn't really tell me a lot without actually taking the battery out taking some stuff apart and actually getting down in there, taking a really close look, even though a fuel pump is a common thing for the ASD, fuse like I mentioned in the last video, the AFC, fuse it covers. The PCM injector is the coil. The obd2 connector is surge.
Solenoid. Oh, two sensors are controlled by it as well. So anything. Like that could be causing our ASD to blow, and I feel like at this point, it's, probably something like that. Another thing it very well, it could be is an o2 sensor that could be causing a misfire if our wires have shorted out and that's the next thing I'm going to check, but a lot of things like that are shorting out could cause that fuse to blow Oh to sensor wires run right here. Your see has like a fancy blue insulator on it.
And then it runs down below the header and stuff where it gets really. Hot which is kind of sketchy, but I, guess it works. So anything is a possibility at the moment. But honestly, at this point, I'm still wondering if our coil itself isn't bad, because that is a significant misfire.
It almost sounds like a cylinder down. It sounds awful. If the coil is that crappy at this point I see where it could be shorting out within the coil and causing that fuse to blow occasionally I got the intake manifold off that took me about all of five minutes, I think, but got that out of. The way I, went ahead and pull the coil off real quick, and it's supposed to look like that that looks really, really bad. I. Think, this is the original coil. I, don't think I ever put one in this car.
So I'm, really starting to wonder if that was our issue right there that looks disgusting, but I think I'm going to pull some plugs out too and see what kind of condition they're in I do have some kg g-power, Platinum, plugs, I, don't know, how good these are or how well if they are for the car, but if they. Look pretty bad I'll, go ahead and gap these and throw them in there. Hmm, oh, that's. A lot of oil it's all in the threads. So it could just be the valve cover gasket, I know, the valve covers leaking on this side, a tiny bit, probably third, new gaskets in it again. But a lot of oil, not on the tip, though so it's all it's all in the threads. So I think we're, probably okay, plug itself actually, doesn't, look, too bad.
It looks like it might have been running a little rich, which would make sense as I, pulled out. Cylinder 1, which is the cylinder that had all that corrosion on the coil. So this one probably was running more rich for now I'm going to throw this plug back in I, make it with a different plug in the end this car for when we tune it and stuff, but I'm going to go ahead and throw this back in I might pull out cylinder 2 or 3 here. Look, we can just see how they look compared actually, you know, what I'm gonna wait to put this one back in, and I'm going to compare the two that one's got a lot of oil on to from. The gasket, but it looks pretty similar as far as they're. Both pretty, pretty dark. Actually this one looks like it's, burnt I forgot.
What that it is almost like a buildup of some sort on it. They honestly don't look bad. Y'all already know, I had played a little camera since I got the spark plugs out, though and that's a lot of carbon. Alright. And amongst the parts that I keep in the back seat of my car, um, oh, it's jammed under my seat. Here we go I have a nice new.
Excellent, brand coil that I got for. This like a month ago, it's been sitting under that seat for a long time and I think now is the time to finally use it and see if it does the trick, yeah, I would dare say that that's a little better all right, I got the intake manifold back on. And everything is good to go. This has the plug in the last couple vacuum lines. And the map sensor we can go ahead and fire this up and see if I solved our problems if it do I'm going to be so happy to come on baby, whoa.
Okay. You sound a lot better. You sound. Way better my god, yes, got it. It was the coil after all.
Thank God. Guess I forgot how fast this car was I got into boost a little. And it was just like, whoa, okay, like I wasn't, expecting it. The wheel started toward steer, and the car should take off. And it actually scared me a little that was, oh, dude, I love this car. So freaking much.
Oh, hello. I didn't. See you there Shh, pretend you didn't just see me doing that little hit as to what might be one of the next videos on the daily Cruiser. We are.
Not done getting the fitment game a little more on point with this char. Well, I must say days are staying late or longer, but it does get dark out way, too early another couple weeks. Oh, and clocks will be switching again, and I'm really excited for that, because then it's going to stay a lot out really late, but went ahead and took the daily Cruiser off camera. I didn't bore. You guys with another wash montage, but I went and got it cleaned up looking perfect I cleaned up the GT a little as well. For me when I get into detailing don't, start cleaning cars up and doing that it's like I go into Zen mode.
But I'm, not in the best health. The past few days, I, don't know, I think I like caught something, or I started to catch something whose now faking. My head has been dead.
She'd be pulling through it now. But that slowed me down the past few days as well, I've still been able to figure out our ASD issue during that time, and I'm super excited about that again, hit that thumbs up button. If you guys are.
Excited that the PC GT is back the last video that I put up on. It has been doing super, super well, compared to the other videos. So I'm really excited to see that it's awesome to see you guys out supporting videos doing them with you. Hopefully in the next couple of days, I will have this car running again as well. Hopefully tomorrow highs of the time I'm filming. This I will have all of that put back in the car and good to go next video.
You see I'm, not sure which car will be on, or whether it will be me. Actually buying another car, but either way it's bound to be an exciting. Once I'm, looking at a few different off with Cruiser projects, and I've been trying to find something good for us. So we can make a couple videos on it and have another little flip future project here on the channel on top of our beautiful projects here so I and hit that thumbs up button. If you are excited about the videos that are to come. And if you have enjoyed having a PD GT back on the channel, if you haven't already Sebastien.
