Straight from Julio actual....three screws and the two nozzles and two electrical quick connects come off swap the new section button it up/purge the air from the lines and your gtg. The motor itself will ďlast foreverĒ that section is what goes bad and gets rebuilt. [/QUOTE]

Thanks. That's even more work than just replacing the whole pump. Lol

Thanks anyway. I guess I need to call him since I can't figure this out

How so? Iím not gonna have to remove anything to reach those three screws and two nozzles, fender stays on...quick swap, Julio said 10-15 min max....how long will it take to do the pump on yours? Pulling the fender off and everything underneath? Iím curious? I did the install myself....took me about 40 hours continuous....long story lol but I know I can reach that bottoms part without removing anything just lift the car a little bit

Takes an additional 5-10 min to get fender off. I keep an extra pump on hand to swap out the whole thing.

I'll have to call Julio next week. I drove it this morning and it was 60ish degrees out and the meth worked great, on the way home it was 80ish degrees out and it wouldn't kick in

Seems like when it's cool out there isn't any issues with the system. Weird.

I just got home from Tampa....started the car to let it get up to temp, hit the test button and Iíll be damned if it didnít go green on the test....

I got a new pump on hand so Iím gonna swap it, but I feel like Iíve never seen it go green on a test, maybe Iíve just looked away after I saw red in the past and the instructions say it wonít go green with a dual kit but I stayed locked on the light hit the test, saw red saw green standard engine stubble Iíve always seen....idk..🤔

I did rule out the cooler weather thoughts of it working without issues. I got on the freeway this morning and it was 58į out, made a pull merging on and it ran great no issues. I then went to make another pull after I slowed back down and the meth wouldn't spray so it working fine in cool weather and not warm weather theory is out the window

I haven't read the whole thread, but how are you determining it is or isn't spraying?

Test button at idle, have also pulled off the nozzle and put the line in a bottle to see it spray using the test button. Works the first 1-2 times for each engine cycle.

Also while driving by the meth light and overall performance of the car. It's a very noticeable difference when the meth kicks in vs not kicking in.

So the red light does or doesn't come on when the system isn't working? Just curious.

Red light does come on, but green does not.
