    a few weeks ago my DA integra started to lose power and sound different. i checked the plugs and they were lean but when i drove the car all i smelled was gas. Then finally it sputtered out and died. i swapped in a new fuel pump from another DA that was running fine. but the car still wont start. Is it the fuel pump and i just changed it wrong or could it be something else.

    Thanks

    try the fuel filter...or maybe your injectors arent seated right into the manifold and theyre leaking??

    Have any ECU codes?

    Check your distributor.

    no codes and i have spark. It sputters like it almost wants to turn over but doesnt. Ive checked the plugs since i changed the pump and they have fuel on them.

    Could be a fuel pressure regulator.. check the fuel pressure and see if it's within specs.

    how do i repreessurize the system. I was under that impression that you just click the key on and off to get the pump running is that right? and how can i check to see if the fuel pressure is right.... just hook up a gauge?

    Thanks

    The pump will run for 2 seconds after you turn the key on. After that it only runs if you are cranking the engine or the ECU sees a tach signal (or if you keep turning the key off and back on).

    To check fuel pressure all you need is a fuel pressure gauge hooked up.
