Re: Fuel Pressure Problem
It sounds like you might have several problems. First, if you are smelling gas, you need to pull the rear seat and see where it is coming from. As to the problem of hard cranking, the check valve in the fuel pump is probably bad (assuming the valve is at the fuel pump). This allows the system to de pressurize which makes for hard starting, the check valve should keep pressure in the fuel rail. As to the poor running until it is warm, could possibly be a bad coolant sensor giving the ECU erroneous data.
