    Suspected fuel delivery issues. Very hard cold start (almost impossible w/o starting fluid), and one episode of driveability issues. Also seeping fuel tank drain plug. Just drained tank and removed pump. Some rust inside. Plan to check pump and fuel gague sending unit w/ multimeter, and replace fuel filter. Also have replaced spark plugs (didn’t solve starting issue).

    Once I get the tank drain plug to stop seeping, I can get it in the garage on stands, and examine the p/s leak (completely empties in 1-2 days).

    Glad you found one and that you got it home safe. Hope all works out for you. Lots of good info here, just search or ask!
    I would love to find a Galant or maybe a 2g if I could find one for a descent price. I used to have a 90 but don't have many parts left. A throttle body, maybe a exhaust mani and some other small stuff.
    Is your FIAV hooked up, that might cause cold start issues.

    Good suggestion, haven’t looked into that yet. Would that cause a lean condition on starting? I have both factory manuals and Haynes, so I’l read up on the FIAV operation and troubleshooting.

    Right now I have the fuel tank drained and pump assembly removed. Rust and debris are in there, so cleaning all that up, and flushing lines and new filter seem like first step in any case. Actually maybe going to look at a 90 gsx parts car tomorrow. Because hey, why try to fix up one when you can have two non-runner projects. Don’t suppose anyone else can relate.;()
