I posted this once before to no responses, so I'm trying again. The car sometimes, probably 75% of the time, cranks 5-10 seconds before starting. The rest of the time, it starts just perfectly after about 1 second. I didn't see anything leaking from the FPR. Once started, it runs just fine. No misfires, etc. and there are no codes. I have noticed the gas mileage has gone down probably 10-15%, to 15 from an average of about 17 previously. I do almost all in-town, heavy traffic driving, so I expect it to be low, but it's lower than normal. Could this be a dirty injector leaking? If I take them out one at a time, will I be able to tell by looking at them whether they need cleaning? How do I take them out with the stainless fuel rail? Maybe an IAC? The idle speed is fine, though, so I don't think that's the case. Anything else I should be looking at or suspecting? Should I just go ahead and replace the FPR? Can they have intermittent leaks? (I don't think so, but I also recognize that I'm not the foremost expert at anything)
Many thanks in advance for any thoughts or advice... If you're in the Chicago western 'burbs, stop by and I'll buy ya a beer.
