Don't do it...the rag will get sucked in, then we're in for real trouble~ check instructions on how to "tune" these...it's going to take some research~

there are always other ways....a can of $4 "starting spray" should get things moving....question is, why is there NO fuel pressure....do you hear the hear the fuel rail pressurizing when the "on" position is selected?~

sounds like an intake air sensor or coolant temp sensor is not telling the computer to enrichen the mix here~ NO "check engine" lights? scan your codes or have them scanned at your auto parts store...we will not be replacin' stuff without knowing if it's really at fault here~

the fuel pressure regulator would make it run like poop if not attached to the vacuum source on the intake plenum~

If you have had a hard hit. Reset the fuel pump, shut off switch in trunk.
