Question about 1991 Dodge Stealth
When i start my car it could just idle when i give it gas it would stall.after about fifteen minutes i could give it some throttle and it would run fine. i would drive it for thirty miles or so and no problems i would stop shut car off for like ten minutes and it would start right back up and drive fine.
now when i wait a few days and start it back up it will not start. it wants to start but keeps back firing and wont start i'm stumped please help! maybe bad gas?

try haviing your alternator checked advance auto parts can check it while its on the car and the can check the battery too. if thats not it it may stall due to a loose battery connection or a loose ground strap. if it stalls and everything turns of (electrical) it may be a connection or ground strap.

check vacuum hose into throttle body, also clean throttle body orifices and iac. remove iac [engine off] and have someone turn key to on to see if plu8nger works. just a thought .

SOURCE: Car keeps shutting off
After extensive research I have found that in 10 out of ten cases it was the E.C.M or in other words the computer for the vehicle is faulty. You can thank dodge for this problem. What happens is they put a Temperature sensitive device in an area that gets unbelievably hot. Then the Computer overheats and shuts down. In most cases the control panel in the vehicle where the odometer is says "No Bus"
The only way to fix this problem is to put a new computer in. DO NOT buy one from the dealership they are too pricey. Get on off of Ebay. For the extremely mechanical Savy you can do what I did in my durango. I carefully cut the tape away from the main harness then marked everything and cut the harness drilled a hole through my firewall (Just be careful where you drill) fed the harness through and reconnected my computer and mounted it under the dash so when it is extremely hot here in arizona the A/C Keeps the computer cool. With this method I have NEVER had this problem happen to me.
Just don't do this if vehicle is under warranty it will violate the ciditions of the warranty. Hope this helps. I have seen this problem posted to other sites and am just trying to let everyone know what it is and How to fix it.

then i would replace whats called the hall effect sensor its that black plastic plate you see when you take dist cap off. just pull rotor and lift up the sensor.dist cap is what holds it on.also under the sensor will be a stamped sheet metal piece that looks like the top of a castle wall. make sure its not loose on the shaft.if it is then new dist will be needed
