If it only doe,s it when it,s hot,check plug,s and wire,s if that dos,nt help check coil,s.


All so may check fuel pressure,could be stopped up fuel filter or fuel pump going bad.

I replaced the coil wire and spark wires and it still did the same thing the plugs seem to be okay, and the only coil i'm aware of got replaced in the last year... I'm not going to lie I don't know a whole lot about cars i'm a girl but I was wondering if it could have something to do with the idle control valve or the fuel pressure regulator but like I said I don't know much about cars


I think it may be your fuel pump,go have the fuel pressure checked it will tell you this,but from your post,i am thinking bad fuel pump,91 model,have you ever had oneput one in it>?

I haven't but I've only had it for about 4 years when I did the fuel filter it was the original one the car was made with. so I guess it wouldn't hurt to try to fuel pump


Fuel pump,s act crazy when they are going bad,no problem half the time then poof,setting side the road


Go have fuel pressure check to know this before you spend your money to prove it,but i think that is your problem, Good luck with it gurl : )

Thank you!!! I'll probably post on here again if that doesn't help any
