Oh...and we changed to fuel filter and checked the alternator and its working fine.


when you did, you've assured the Groud to the fender/chassis was there, this one is for the spark and ECM, and control solenoids for operation of things~ Black should have three branches, one to the motorblock, the fender/chassis, and the third for uninerrupted power to the flashers and brain, as it is~


When was the last time you replaced the plugs and wires? Did you check for vacuum leaks?
