thanks man, not helpful but at least i know its a more generalized problem than i would have thought


have you thought about it being a problem with the ecu? used to have a similar prob years ago with a car,it would run fine, go rough, stop, i'd go for help then when i got back it would start, to the amusement of the guys from the garage. turned out to be and intermittent fault with the ecu and fuel.


My mech says that computers rairly go bad. He said to try unpluging connections and replug them. Corrosion sometines builds up and that simple act will work. I love dylectic grease, put it on all connections now. Check that damn fuel pressure regulator. I had intermed problems till it failed
