My '93 has been acting funny. It started at wide open throttle, around 4500 rpm, the car would lose total power for a few moments come all the way back on, and repeat until full WO throttle was removed. At first, this would only happen if I was already up to 25-30 mph, it eventually creeped lower in mph to the point that even from a start, I'd have these total losses of power. During this period, the car would still start and allow me to drive it in a more responsible manner. Until recently.
About two weeks ago, my wife took the car about 40 miles. During that trip she noticed what I described above, but at much lower speeds and throttle openings. When it was time to go 15 minutes later, the car would start, but not stay running. I had the car towed. In my mind, I felt ignition, or fuel pumps. Maybe a vacuum leak... Dealer says there was an EGR fault code (check engine light has been on ever since I bought it. Never given me any problem. I figured it was due to the still original after over 270K miles lower harness which is frayed beyond belief.) So, we replace the EGR, handle a few other non-associated issues while it's in.
I get it back Thursday (2 days ago) and it's smooth. Starts, a little stubborn though. Kinda like it lacks compression... But it starts and runs. I warm it up and test it at WOT, problem is still present. But it started after a 10 minute break. I parked it for a few hours, drove it 40 miles home after work, no problem. I figure, well I'll baby it until I can diagnose the issue and fix / have it fixed.
I opt to drive it to work this morning. Stop about 2 miles from work. When I get in to go, it starts, I put it in R and it dies right away...
Insulators have been covered in depth here. I'm sure we didn't handle that when I replaced the caps and rotors about 10 months ago. I know that is a starting point, but I'd love for the collective wisdom of these pages to discern whether or not the issues I've described here are one and the same with those experienced by other users.
Thanks in advance.
