Disconnect the wire harness at the connector from the stoplight switch.
NOTE: Locking tab on connector must be lifted before connector can be removed.
Remove the hairpin retainer and slide the stoplight switch, the push rod and the nylon washers and bushing away from the brake pedal. Remove the stoplight switch by sliding the stoplight switch up/down as required to remove.
NOTE: Since the stoplight switch side plate nearest the brake pedal is slotted, it is not necessary to remove the brake master cylinder push rod and one spacer washer from the brake pedal pin.
Position stoplight switch so that the U-shaped side is nearest the brake pedal and directly over or under the pin. Then slide stoplight switch down or up trapping the master cylinder push rod and black bushing between the stoplight switch side plates. Push stoplight switch and push rod assembly firmly toward brake pedal arm. Assemble outside white plastic washer to pin and install hairpin retainer to trap whole assembly.
CAUTION: Do not substitute other types of pin retainers. Replace only with a production hairpin retainer. Component damage may occur.
Assemble the wire harness connector to the stoplight switch.
NOTE: Stoplight switch wire harness must have sufficient length to travel with stoplight switch during full stroke of brake pedal. If wire length is insufficient, reroute harness or service as required.
I would suspect the fuel pump inside the gas tank is defective. Next time it fails to short hook up a fuel pressure gauge to the engine test port in the fuel supply pipe to the fuel injectors. You can buy the tester for about $25.00 on line.
Could be several things wrong. One your fuel pressure may be low which means it could be a bad fuel pump. Have you changed the fuel filter lately? Also could be throttle position sensor. Does it recover after it bogs down? have you changed plugs or wires?
sounds like a typical throttle position sensor problem, ye before you get there check the air filter and make sure that youf fuel is not contaminated it is either your TPS or the air flow meter is going bad both are expensive sorry
