Question about 1983 Plymouth Reliant
Check for vacume leaks first. you stated that the carb was loose and you tightened it. you probably need to replace the gasket beneath it (thats why the carb seemed loose)

I would change gas brands, it may be an additive they use, have seen this before on my own car, a 1973 NOVA, I went to a carb shop they sold me a Viton rubber pump, changed gas brands installed the pump and problem went away.

A very simple and inexpensive solution to this dilemma is to replace the fuel filter. Sometimes they get particles in the fuel system that get caught up in the filter, and plug it up. They are generally inexpensive, and the change takes less than half an hour. If you are mechanically inclined, you can even do it yourself. Buy a Haynes manual specific to your car, and you can learn to do the simple things yourself, saving a ton of money! It is worth the effort.

Hello, I would assume this is your fuel pump inside your tank. I would first however do some basics like a general tuneup. For starters I would replace your spark plugs and wires, rotary cap and button and check your fuses. Run some injector cleaner through your system. You know quick simple cheap things before you get to the fuel pump inside the gas tank which can be kinda expensive. The warm up then dies can be caused by, "blownout or fouled," spark plugs. I hope this gives you a general direction in which to go. A sidenote is that coil packs do not normally run an igntion code and I for one do not like them becuase they are expensive.

It's located behind the passenger side rear wheel and looks like a round silver canister. When you buy the new one, you will know exactly what you're looking for. I takes about 10 to 15 minutes to change. Just jack up the rear end and put a drip pan on the ground for any overflow when you take it off, then pop on the new one. They should be changed on an average of every 10 to 15,000 miles.

A fuel pump would not cause this type of shut down, a loss of spark would, this can be due to a failing distributor pickup coil or other things in the system that control spark, so the first thing you need to do is see if you have any fault codes stored in the memory of the computer that runs the engine fuel injection and ignition control systems,\you can do this without a scanner, just go to the information link below and it will show you how to get the codes using the check engine light blink out, fault code definitions are at the bottom of the web page . Here is the web link.
