Car starts but will not stay running,
Veh was over heating. I changed the defective water pump &put in new timing belt. The
car was running just fine. Now it starts but will not stay running. I can run the RPM's up
to 3 grand and it will hunt from 2500-3000 RPM and sustain this for for 2 min. plus.
Timing marks are all aligned. Air Box hoses are all connected, I can not find any
unconnected wires. I also changed out the sparking plugs while doing all of this.
Check air filter and clean throttle body replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while add Lucas Fuel Injector Cleaner to gas tank.
If it was running properly before making the repairs (except for the overheating issue) it has to something you have done. Make sure timing belt is properly installed, go over all electrical connections you may have come into contact with, make sure you didn't get sparkplug wires on the wrong sparkplug (if this applies to your vehicle) and make sure air box connections aren't leaking.
