Ok, so i took my car to the shop i used to work at, late night to change the oil/filter. And tighten up my downpipe bolts.(they were a little loose) So i finish up, make sure its all ok.. fill up the rad. with coolant and distilled water. Everything is fine, car warms up like usual, i start to head home, and everything is cool.. then i get on it, just before my exit, i hit .70 bar and i hear a pop.. car starts to slow down.. i try to give it some gas.. nothing.. so i let it turn off... coast into a gas station trying to wonder wtf happend. I changed the plugs hoping it was them again, but this time when i pulled them i noticed the two front plugs looked like they ran a little lean (one corner of each plug was slightly white) The car turns over, and cranks and everything, but just dont turn on. i have a fuel cutoff switch, an i thought maybe it was flooded, cut the fuel, cranked it, turn ed the fuel back on, an still nothing. What could this be? Im thinking its something fuel related, maybe a fuel pump or bad line or something?.. someone help.. i need this car running, since its the only thing i have to drive.. and i have to work on thursday!

test your fuel pump, replace your fuel filter, check for fuel leaks at the rail.



i dont know of any fuel part that would cause a loud pop when it fails other then the engine itself.

Why do some people go around in denial of their engine blowing?



Lets see...You boost, you hear a pop, then you have no power. Look at the plugs and they show signs of running lean. Car cranks but wont start...



Hmmm....







Bueller?...Bueller?...















Id compression test it if I were you.

Even if your fuel pump failed and its currently not getting fuel, it probably knocked all to hell when that last bit of gas trickled out of those injectors.
