Check cylinder compression. If low, then a worn engine is likely the issue.

SOURCE: 1990 Dodge Omni. Runs but shuts down

Check to see that you have good(bright orange) spark to the spark plugs the next time it dies... if not odds are its the coil. If spark is good check fuel pressure, since the pump was replaced if pressure is bad the fuel pressure regulator would be in question.

SOURCE: 1987 Dodge Omni 2.2 Engine Carborated. Starts great, runs 3 to 5 minutes and then starts to smoke, load up on gas and shut off. Wait an hour and same thing all over again. All tuned up. Any Ideas?

Has the carb been puled off for a rebuild? If not sounds as though the floats may be out of adjustment or malfunctioning. Also a good kit will help it run better. You'll need the numbers on the carburetor to get the kit. There is either a tag or embossed area on where you can find these numbers. Dodge/Chrysler used Carter branded carbs in the past yours may still be one.

Starts and runs great but dies when you hit the brakes it dies


engine stalls.
can be 50 reasons
but are this.
needs a 60k mile tune up bad.
1: EFI system has 12vdc power loss. (see dash dim?)_
2: engine misfires. horribly and idle controls failed, (all will like that)
3: engine floods, same.
4: engine fueling drops so low and lean the engine stalls.
5: bad engine, cam time or sparking way off or 45 other engine prob.
there is a test for each one, need a list?
and last, 6: the ISC is stuck close, or EGR stuck open

did you pull the DTC scan codes, the CEL blink test?
from the ECU?
is the CEL glowing (lamp in dash) running?
omg, this is not a carb engine is it, many 87 were.
1987 is a cusp year, in USA for end off all carbs. (EPA rules)
