    Yes, it has a lean burn unit. The engine is re-starting by itself after stalling.

    This is going to sound really crude burt while it's running, tap lightly on the computer with a small hammer...if the engine stumbles the computer is bad.

    Have you got the factory "lean burn" computer still on there? ((located on the driver side of the air cleaner housing) Are you re-starting the engine with the key when it stalls or is it re-starting by itself while in motion?

Before you tear apart and replace the whole car like I did, you have THREE converters on that car. The front two are part of the y-pipe and one on center pipe. Vacuum check when hot or look under it in the dark after running about twenty minutes, any glowing red in converter. you need to clean or replace. vinegar and distilled water soaking, it can be done, will help clean the y-pipe one, the other is 75 bucks aftermarket and worth the change.

My 1990 420 sel will run for awhile, then suddenly stall. It will restart after a while and then seems to be ok, though it can stall again under load and at rest. Is it time for a new fuel pump? Cheers...


Hi rex.... dont throw parts at it until you check fuel pressures..... get a gauge and put into fuel rail... drive or run and check pressure when fauly occurrs.... might only need a fuel filter..... also it may be possible that your ingnition unit (TZI) may be starting to give problems...... the clue being cuts out after a while with hot engine, then restarts after a while.... so check fuel pressures, if they are ok, then you are probably looking electronics.... hope this helps.......

1987 CHEVY CORVETTE CUTS OFF SOMETIMES WHILE DRIVING


Could be just about anything, but given that I had the same symptoms that turned out to the fuel pump, I would check that if you haven't already. Mine would run fine for a while, particularly when it was cold, and tested fine at the shop, but after a while under load, it turned out the pressure would suddenly drop to about 15 pounds. A real pain to diagnose, since when it was in the shop it wasn't under load, so it tested OK.
