I have a 91 capri - it runs for about 20-30 minutes but then cuts out if I accellerate - starts back up but then dies - if I let it sit for another 30 minutes it's fine for a while - any thoughts?

Asked by Sep 13, 2015 at 05:53 PM about the 1991 Mercury Capri 2 Dr XR2 Turbo Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It seems to restart, but when I try to accellerate it loses all RPMs and eventually stalls.  Sometimes it will stay running in first but when I try to shift to second and let the clutch out it stalls again.
