    Given that the thermal trip breaker has a metal case, Iíd say something inside was touching the shell. Iíd just replace the breaker for peace of mind.

    Dana,

    I did a quick search for The GT LMA MSDS and in the process ran across this communication between MG owner and Castrol product support.

    This should answer your question.

  4. What bulkhead connector is this, and temp gauge TS-ing

    Iíll clarify that white floating connector with Black/Red wires.

    In the Early 81ís, that was used inline between the idle micro-switch and the Vacuum Solenoid. It is on the wire diagram as shown...

    Certainly possible, but it still should fire via the CSV fuel during cranking.

    If he got the engine to run, itís probably not the Resistor connections, but always good to verify anyway.

    It forces fuel to circulate from the pump to the FD back to the tank. You still need the air flap to move down enough to crack the plunger and flow fuel to the injectors.

    [Engine] No Start After Doing Basic Maintenance

    Sounds like the CSV circuit is suspect. Have you verified the TTS is plugged in and the grounds are all attached at the intake manifold near the ISM mounting bracket?

    Btw, you didnít mention if,...

    If it got that hot, I wonder how crispy the wires are coming into the blue socket. High heat probably means high probability of green corrosion and high resistance build up in the wires.

    Very odd to have both fans running in that scenario. The fans should not run at all if the Mode switch is off. The FF module is just a circuit splitting pass thru device. The Fan relay is what...

    You might think so, but not necessarily. Common 12v relays are of the SPDT type.

    The not so common Lambda relay is a DPST type with 87a/87b are internally connected.

    Itís a 40 amp thermal trip circuit breaker, not a relay. It is located electrically, between the cool Fan relay and the blue fan fail module socket. You will not see 12v on either wire unless the...

    Sounds like you fried the contacts in the starter solenoid. Does the solenoid pull, click with 12v applied? If it does but the motor doesnít spin thatís likely the problem.
