Re: Engine starts fine and then takes 4 or 5 times to start
Exactly what I was thinking. When the relay contact pointsare cold, minimal amount of resistance across them.
As the relay heats up, the carbon tracking across the points heats up, thus reducing the total amount of current going to the pump, its given off as heat across the contact points due to being a high resistance.
If the mechanic drove this car, I'm surprised it did not do anything thing wrong with him. The post states mechanic ran it for most of the day, idle all day long sitting still, or did he actually drive it somewhere?
