perhaps something going on with your fuel injection. In the fault condtion, measure the fuel pressure using a fuel pressure gauge, if you dont have one, you can pick it up at Orielly's. auto parts. just plug it into the fuel pressure port fitting. When you turn on the key, you should see the fuel pressure come up and hold steady around 30'ish PSI. If you have a linky fuel injector, the pressure will come up, then drop off rapidly to zero. Anyway, at the very least, a good place to start looking.

Why hasn't there been a recall?
