Expert:  Frank replied 8 years ago.
You checked a few things-if the kv drops on accel.check with a sparktester and check the crank signal into the ic module-fuel control is the purple/white wire out of the module for rpm.Relook at the tps and maf sensors-you can disconnect and run them in back up.What I think is realy going on and was common is you have injectors that are shorting out-when that happens you will get no spark and the ecm resets-if you set a code in it it will clear the code when it resets.The injectors are 12.6 ohms ea/If you unplug the end corners you can test #1 and 6-then back probe the harness for the other 4 at 3hms.You ohms law on a series ciruict for 4 resistanc es.
