Need to check to see if power is getting back to the fuel pump. A test light is handy to do this. I may just be the fuel pump relay.


Check the fuel pressure at the engine. Maybe also go ahead and replace the fuel filter.


any check engine light? Please update Loyale


So many possibilities, including a heat-related interruption in distributor! Weird but common problem back then.
