Sound,s like fuel problem,check fuel filter ,and fuel pressure from fuel pump,may be bad.

It could also be your optical distributor. Check out this article:


I agree......fuel system. My 1991 had a similar problem. I ended up spending a lot of money at a dealer where they replaced all of the injectors; fuel lines; etc. After receiving the bill I could have used an ambulance for just the 'shock' value. I swear the dealer just changed items until they found the actual faulty component. This is why I hardly ever go to dealers! Good luck.

We changed the fuel filter,and we can hear the fuel pump running, and we can also hear the fuel in the buddy pushed a needle valve to see if there was fuel pressure, and fuel squirted out fine seems like when something gets hot it triggers the kill
