5.7 Liter Fuel Delivery Problems
Splashed my 2001, 3300 SCR in the water for the first time yesterday. Starboard engine fire right up and ran great for hours. Port side engine did not. I replaced the fuel filter, made sure it had gas in it (tank and filter) and still nothing. I then ran it a few minutes by dripping gas into the throttle body. After that I disconnected the fuel line from the throttle body to check for fuel flow into a coke bottle and I got nothing. Keep in mind, all the while I can hear the fuel pump and it sounds like it's running with no load (higher pitch whine). At this point I gave up. While on the way to put her up and after running the starboard engine for about 30 minutes, I tried the port side engine again and it started. It ran great for about an hour and then died. I'm thinking it was vapor locked or had something blocking the pickup. I havenít checked anything after putting her up to see if the secondary break down is related to the first. If you've got a tale to tell, let me have it. I'll be over here scratching my head.
