starting issues

well idk if its because I changed the mani, but its been kinda hard starting the car when cold or after sittin awhile from driving. like when I go to start it takes holding the key for like 5 secs just to start it, but starts right up after that unless it sits awhile. checked main relay and there is no cracks and all solders look good, relay makes all normal click sounds, im getting fuel and spark, tried 2 starters and still same thing. now could it be cause im using the y8 fuel feed line to the rail instaed of the a6? I know the y8 fuel filter is different but I don't know lol

Why did you change starters? Does it crank slow?

Did it start fine before you changed that manifold?

Did you put on a new fuel filter, or use one that came with the manifold?

Did you use the injectors out of the a6 manifold?
89CivicSi

changed starters to see if that was the issue and ruled that out,
used the fuel filter I had since it was only a month o so old.
and yes it started just fine before swapping manifolds.
and yes using the a6 injectors

did you bychance remove the thermostat??? and it has been very humid in those parts so it could be doing a slight vapor lock.
89CivicSi

nope was no need to remove the thermostat, and it would take a shit load of humidity to put enough water in to vapor lock any
EF4lyf3

not true my friend. Ive had vapor lock out here from just 2 days of rain. Then it was so humid the car wouldnt start for about an hour. Trust me, you might be getting alot of vapor.

found out it may be my fpr releasing the pressure back into the tank  Sad  so now i need a new fpr.
89CivicSi

well found out how to test fpr and see if i have a leaking or ruptured diaphragm in it.

Do you have the vacuum line hooked up to the FPR?
89CivicSi
