Pretty easy to check to see if electric connect
1 push wash button
2 listen for sound of motor
if no sound of motor, check for power with test light

Good point, Dusty!

I'll just get aux power on (no engine) and listen up front to see if I hear a motor pushing or not. That does potentially eliminate dismantling lines to check for plugged spots if the washer pump motor is not even making a noise.



And yes, still waiting to get into the garage. *L* At least my mechanic is busy getting paid by a steady stream of folks in his shop.

I can tell you this about the pump on these
If the line is plugged, and the motor is working, it will blow the line off if it is plugged

That is a good test for you to start

It was doing that before I got it to seat, but the retaining clip was not inserted properly. Will know SOON --> in the middle of what's posted below!


The Situation (Not In Jail)

I'm currently in the shop, going on day 4 of upgrades. We've nearly rebuilt the exhaust and intake manifolds and it's all painted red white blue and silver.

Also, I was getting 5-7 mpg before I got in. I've had constant EGR/AIC codes and have changed EVERYTHING related to that system. We had to remove the smog pump to get at the last lower exhaust manifold, and wouldn't you know it sounded broken? Turn it, sounded like pieces of metal and a grinding pump. We blew into it one way, it turned. We blew into it the other way, it turned. BROKEN!

$150 later for a new NAPA smog pump, I am hoping to capture my 22 mpg highway cruising mileage again. The OEM 13-15 PPH Injectors just went in too, and we've sealed the exhaust manifold's leak (we think, hopefully this gets proven tomorrow).

Nearly everything in the engine bay is new now. And a lot is painted for USA. We also replaced all the brittle air pressure lines with new 5/32 rubber lines and marked with colored electrical tape (black hoses everywhere). If I could get the 5/32 rubber air hoses in colored rubber, I would. That would look sweet.

I'm taking pictures. Will take some more once everything is done and upload after a good engine bay wash.
