some new info, so the battery is fine let me explain the issue a little differently. Basically what I need to do is the following:
when I turn the ignition to ACC and wait for the fuel icon to disapear this takes about 2-3 seconds meanwhile I can hear the fuel
pump during this stage, If at this point I try to start my 147 it won't start, it turns over fine, so I wait 2-3 seconds and turn to ACC again.
wait for the fuel icon to disapear and turn off again. If the car has been sitting over night I need to do this 3 times and it will start.
if I go to the shop quickly or it has only been sitting for 2-3 hours then the problem doesn't happen. I am thinking the fuel pump is starting to fail
in turn I need to prime it 3-4 times to get fuel to start the car. I tried a new battery same problem. Does anyone have experience with this?
if it is the fuel pump how easy is it to swap on my own, I assume I need to drop the fuel tank etc. I hate the fact that when I go to work or come home
I have to wait 5 minutes to start the car. Any thoughts?
