My well-maintained 1996 SE7 with 153K refused to start for my wife yesterday, so she took my 1997 SE. I went out to her vehicle, checked everything underhood, turned the key and it started right up, as always. It has always had superior fuel pressure to the 1997 (which has a replacement fuel pump), so I assumed that, at some point in its cost-no-object maintenance history (5th car of a wealthy family that bought and serviced at dealer, then only top independants for my neighbor, the second owner, again cost-no-object maintenance), the fuel pump had been replaced! It did not start on 4-6 timed tries, and I heard no fuel noise from the rear, so I went to check and found that the original carpet and rubber padding have never been lifted from new. Uh-oh. The heads of the screws are rusted, although I have a Philips-head screwdriver with me (they may be square drive-head screws...), it's not going to do the job to remove the access panel without penetrant soaking, so that I could try cleaning the electrical connections, etc. This parking garage at my office is only big enough to get a wheel lift tow truck into due to height. A disabled Land Rover requires all 4-wheels up to move out, so they would have to dolly the rear, front on a wheels lift. I am 50+ miles from home, where I have an empty car trailer and plenty of tools. Any tricks that I can try when fuel pump-in-tank access is not an option? I will try waiting until it eventually starts, but that could be several hours. I'll replace the pump today when I get it home. The most expensive dealer in the world is nearby, but I am certain that they will not have a D1 fuel pump in stock and could not replace it anytime soon. I am a captive audience!
