If you replaced the distributer cap, you may have put the ignition timing out. The distributer only needs to move a couple of degrees to cause the engine to fail to fire.

    i didnt have to take the whole distributor out to swap the cap and rotor.

    You may still have moved it, or the leads are in the wrong order.

    It ran fine for a while and now it is doing it again. I think it might be the coil

I had the same problem after it sitting over the winter. I changed the fuel filter and added water remover to my gas and let it sit over night for the water remover to work and the next day it ran fine.

SOURCE: Truck starts then when engine gets warm it dies

Try removing the petrol cap on the tank, if the truck runs ok then you have a blockage in a hose somewhere.(vacuum created in fuel tank)

Since you now mention the check engine light, when you go to buy a manual and meter, have the codes scanned...most of the larger parts stores do that free. There is a list of codes in the manual. That will point you in the right direction. Ignore any O2 sensor codes to start with though as often any other malfunction can change mixture and set that code. Always deal with that code last.

plugs, fuel system cleaning, fuel filter, air filter.
(is main battery holding charge from alternator?
Is alternator producing charge for battery?)

Or check the fuel pump and fuel filter.

Having problem with my 92 vette dieing on me in


When was the last tune up? What was changed? Coils are notorious for a non running condition. Dead cell in battery or loose battery connections can make it stall. Bad alternator also. Bad fuel filter or fuel pump. Any of these are places to start checking.

1992 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3l dies on highway.


Its normal for the pump to run for three seconds then shut off if the car engine is off. . This indicates that the fuel pump turned on and the pressure did reach specifications. If the pump did not reach pressure the pump would continue to run, You need to check for proper pressure with a gauge. If tthe pressure is ok then you have another issue like an ignition module or crank sensor if applicable. You may have to drive the car with the fuel gauge hooked up to see if you still have pressure when it dies.. I know you said you replaced the pump already but do you have the same issues as before you replaced it. This would indicate which direction you need to go now. If the same then its prabably not the pump.

I have a 1993 Ford Probe GT. As I was driving, the engine suddenly died without warning. It wouldn't start again. After waiting a few minutes, it did start. Now I have only been able to get it started...


Yes a fuel filter can cause the problem but I would say it's most likely the fuel pump or fuel pump relay. Can you hear the fuel pump running when you turn on the ignition?
