Thanks guys!

The terbo likes this cold air.
...I just hope it lasts till spring.


I finally ordered my hood struts last week and installed them yesterday. The bushing that holds the oem prop broke apart from age....so the prop would fall out of place while driving and almost hit the alternator belt....I've been just keeping it in the backseat to use whenever I need it.

I'm lazy and used all the factory bolt holes for the brackets. Eventually I'll mount the lower ones closer to the hood so it lifts the hood higher but meh...it's good for now. Sooo much easier than the prop.




I also did an oil change this weekend, and changed out the last section of hose at the fuel filter....I had the wrong type of 5/16" and it didn't fit 100% resulting in the smallest fuel leak possible.

164,700


And I finally got some time to start taking apart the old ej22....poor thing has been sitting outside since the summer. Nothing was wrong with it, but I'll clean it all up and see if it's useable for the next GC.



Also...the PS and AC brackets from the ej22 fit the ej205. So I'm cutting/shaving as much as I can from each, and painting them before I transfer them to my car. The brackets are bulky so this will clean up the bay a bit more.

Here's the "PS bracket" so far....it's only using 2 of the mounting holes...I'm thinking it should be fine since it only holds the alternator. I already have a cut PS bracket on my engine now...but I cut a LOT more off this one.

Every pound counts at this point.

I finished up the alternator brackets and bought a new catback last weekend. I also installed some kartboy longer hangers, and a new heatshield for inbeteeen the catback and driveshaft....no more rattles!

..more on that stuff soon......

..but....today.....I went to pull out of the driveway and shifted into second....and the car shut off.

Won't start.

Cranks over and over and over, just fine....but no start.

Fuel pump IS NOT priming. I don't even hear the clicking of a relay. Pump is less than a year old; DW300 pump.

The main fuse and SBF5 fuse are both good....I'm getting 12v at each of those too (under hood fuse box).....also, the OBD2 is still working because the accessport is working....it will still read all the sensors too, including fuel stuff.

Gah!!!

Tried more stuffs.

I'm getting 12v at the plug on top the fuel tank....12v at the fuel pump relay connector ( green ).

So I have voltage to the pump and to the relay....but neither wanna work.

I tried a different fuel pump relay from my old ej22 harness and still no luck.

EVERYTHING works inside the car....dash lights, heater/blower, lights, radio, ect.....except the fuel pump won't prime....I pulled every fuse inside and they all looked good.

Is your check engine light coming on when you turn the key to the on position without starting the car?

Could be the fuel pump controller itself, wrx's should have them near the back of the car

Hmmm....very possible. Mines up behind glovebox.

I can't find ANY info on how to check if the controller is good or not....so maybe I can get a friend to stop by with his WRX and I can swap the controllers out to see.

So if anyone knows how to check the controller with a meter, lemme know.

I'm gonna check EVERY fuse again....but if no fuses are blown, the controller is a likely suspect.

I also just checked both fuel pump relays I have with a 9v battery....both will click on and off, and show continuity on the other pins once activated. So the relay is good....

here is a fuel pump diagnosis order of operations:
-Fuel pump (check)
-Relay (check)
-Wiring (check-ish)
-Controller (?)
-Battery (unlikely but possible)

I would bypass the controller. If the pump turns on, the controller is bad. The controller serves as a "throttle" for the pump, and increases voltage to the pump according to the throttle position sensor, o2 sensor, etc. So if it is internally open, or there is a short in the wiring, no voltage will reach the pump.
