We need to see if you are loosing spark and or fuel. When this happens, lets see if it continues to run on starting fluid.
Let me know!
Lol... I would love to! But I do not think JA will let me!
I think that would be a good idea though!
So when the engine dies, will it stay running with starting fluid?
Are we loosing spark when this happens?
This is what I needed to know!
If if you are positive it will continue running with starting fluid and the fuel pressure is at 60 psi, this simply means we are loosing fuel trigger.
We will need to find a clever way to check for power and for a ground signal trigger at the injectors when this happens. After we know which way to go we can pull a wiring diagram and go from there.
SOunds like we might have a bad ignition switch. From what I can gather from what you are telling me is that the engine looses fuel for one reason or another. It sounds like the ignition switch is going bad and cutting off power to some of the components under the hood.
SUre you bet!
I will get a wiring diagram for you....
Give me a second.
Here is what I found.
You are going to want to be sure you have power coming out of the ignition switch on the following wires. Be sure to check these wires for power with the key on.
