That looks like a pulsation damper.onyx wrote:Update: Issue fixed.
I changed the entire assembly in the gas tank ( foreign used) and it was fixed immediately.
Seems as though the pressure regulator inside of the assembly was faulty.. signs of this were:
1. Didnt hear any hissing sound when opening the gas tank cover
2. When the fuel level was low the car felt sluggish while accelerating, but just after filling the gas and the liquid level increased the acceleration was better .
One of the reasons why I think this failed was because i had a hole in the pipe near the gas tank cover for some time before I found it and changed it. You guys should check this as its under a shield and not visible.
Can now starts on one turn.
I hope this helps!
One more thing:
I changed the entire injector railing using injectors from the NZE 121(green colour), these have more holes in the tip as compared to the ones on the original altis(grey colour)... could this cause any issue?
Also, does the fuel rail have any internal pressure valves or is it hollow? As I noticed between the two injectors on the rail there is a circular crimped sort of thing ( see picture attached), What is this?
I did some checking, and saw that in the assembly fitted in the gas tank, there is a regulator. Because my car has the 2ZZGE engine, the Toyota part number is 23280-22010. On Amazon it is US$50.53.
There are lots of aftermarket brands as low as US$6.10. It looks pretty simple, and possibly the O-ring goes bad.
I will talk to my mechanic.
