Good luck with the lessons. I'm not looking forward to teaching my wife on my car. I've noticed the same thing & am also curious. Maybe we need a good high-torque starter.
Holy crap thats alot of wrecks....my wife drives a manual car and I let her take mine a couple days a week. But if she had 11 wrecks I wouldn't even let her look at the keys to any car.Fodwalker said:1) there is no way I teach my woman to drive my car (11 wrecks in 7 months).
Sorry, but I couldn't resist following up on this. When I called the extended crank after start an undocumented quirk in another post http://www.redlineforums.com/forums/35297-post17.html you claimed the pump was always on when cranking and nothing was "undocumented". I don't think you'll find that in the owners manual.WopOnTour said:Normal. PCM operates the pump for 3 seconds (prime pulse) when it sees the IGN turned ON, and continuously thereafter for as long as it sees the engine RPM signal from the crank sensor. When the engine stalls the pump stops. If you just crank it without turning OFF the ignition (so it doesnt see an OFF to ON transition) it takes a few revolutions to create and process the RPM signal before the pump is commanded ON. When you cycle the IGN the "prime pulse" is restablished so fuel pressure is immediately available when you start cranking.
I still blame it on the BB system and not the noobs. The whole 'related thread' thing. They're used to boards where people scream at them about already discussed topics. So they see 'oh so this is related to what I want to ask', so they post in that. Can't say I blame 'em, I've almost posted in the dead threads, but then I see the date and I'm like oh... nevermindjpapa said:I think it's your car teaching or telling you to stop stalling her like a NOOB, urban
And cool, another old thread brought from the dead. Is this some kind of new member thing to do? I know everyone yells at them or makes them feel stupid about doing it (I'm surprised I'm the first to mention about this one, but it's probably because it's a decent thread to post in). But people also yell at the people that make new threads about already discussed topics. So I guess it's a lose lose situation for them when people notice either way, huh? Just a little obervation, don't mind the rambling....
Sorry Nut, You may have misinterpreted what I was saying in the other thread. What I was getting at was that this behavior is not some sort of "software quirk" in the Redline. The Redline fuel pump doesnt really work any differently than any other GM has for a great many years.It stems from a SAFETY FEATURE that automatically shuts off the fuel pump when the ECM/PCM "sees" the engine stop running.CarNut said:Sorry, but I couldn't resist following up on this.
