1998 Toyota Avalon Q&A

1998 Toyota Avalon Question: what does the fuel injection pressure damper do? and will it cause my back fuel?

Answer 1
the fuel injection pressure dampers purpose is to absorb the fuel pumps pulsing of fuel into the fuel rail...that way you will have an even pressure instead of a pulsing fuel pressure. -

ok well for some reason i am not getting any fuel to the back 3 fuel injectors could a bad damper be the cause? -
Comment 2
incidently, fuel pressure is supposed to be 44-50psi. you say the back three injectors are not getting fuel? how did you know? they are under an intake plenum. -
Comment 3
because when the car is running i removced all 3 plug wires to the back cylinders and the sound of the motor never changed. i checked the wires to the plug and the are firing at the plugs so there fore it narrows it down to a fuel problem. i can undo one coil pack on the fron three cylinders and the motor dies. so i know the front three are firing and getting fuel. -

Comment 5
