macksterminator Posted October 10, 2017 Share Posted October 10, 2017 Hey everyone! I am thoroughly stumped! I KNOW I KNOW its a forester but no one has been able to offer any help so hopefully you guys can:) I received this 99 forester with a blow HG, it sat for 2-3 months before being worked on. No major hiccups in disassembly/reassembly. Now that its all back together it starts right up the first time but will only run for a few seconds then shuts off ( while pumping out white smoke). You can keep it running with the pedal but the second you stop giving it gas it dies immediately. What I do know is; No codes thrown on Boshc reader Spark is good Compression good All vac lines connected/airbox fully assembled All vac lines replaced besides the large diameter Y shape hose between PCV/airbox and valve cover breathers Fuel rails, pressure regulator and injectors cleaned by hand New fuel pump Fuel filter not replaced because fuel flows steadily out Fuel pressure solenoid switched with one that works(wrong name? ( green cylinder with prongs under drivers side dash by left knee) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
