Unless your car was built in 1989, the STOMP test
will work - put the friggin bulb in!
(If you read further down the post you linked to, you will see when this was first available).
It WILL work in your car.
also, just take off the rubber intake boot...
while you are looking into the dk motors, watching the butterfly valves. have a second person turn ignition on to position 2. do both the butterfly valves move the same ?
have them step on the gas pedal / then release the pedal, while you are watching the butterfly valves. Do both the valves open to the same distance and do they go back to where they started.(watch for opening and closing speed) shut off ignition do the butterfly valves close? if the dk's are opening and closing- i'd rule them out.
if they are slow.. clean them (ynot posted a dk rebuild with pictures)
The dme issue of pulling 1 fuse and the car still runs - i've seen twice in the last year. puzzled the hell out of us the first time we saw it. the guys issue was a faulty fuel pump (it would pump fuel, but couldn't keep up with the fuel demands above idle) and IT had nothing to with the dme'S. I have yet to try this on my car.

Re: Fuel pump diagnosis and full test routine.
Have you done a plug check to assure none are partly fouled,and what plugs did you use when replaced.You replaced fuel lines,go thru and retighten hose clamps.Mine leaked such small amounts there were no drips,no gas smell,but it made a differance.Don't forget the hoses in the tank on the pumps,mine was split and hard to see.Did you put gauges on to check fuel pressure ?Check the "gap" of the CPS's(may as well replace when you are there).Remove "crank vent" lines from intake and plug to make sure it not sucking unmetered air thru valves and check the rubber bends between MAF's and DK's for hairline cracks(leaks),also check the end caps on the intakes for leaks.Good luck
Can I swap these over to check if the fault follow
Going to investigate with my torch (flashlight ... not oxy acetylene)
Just replace them both - It isn't worth the effort
just to "try" them out...
So... what happened with this?
Any resolve??? Did the car blow up? Still looking
for answers? Let us know, we are hanging here...
