i had this problem with mine and it was the timing belt it had some teeth wore off of it

im thinking of 2 things, on the good side is a bad fuse and waaaaaaaaay on the bad side would be the brain box (computer).

thanks. i've checked fuses and relays. it started 1 time , idled about 3 minutes, shut off and has done nothing since


had a similar problem with my 94...what happened with mine is that some of the wires to the fuse box shorted and fried the ECU


thats what mine did before it fried the ECU...but dont just buy a new one and slap it in, find out what fried it
