Question about 1991 Dodge Stealth
There are six wires that have melted or somehow broke apart that are located on the top right hand side towards the back of the engine I have no idea what they are but they do go inside the plastic cover type thing that is above the fuel injectors, I spliced them back together I covered them w/electrical tape & used duct tape to bind them together, after reconnecting the battery I drove it when the engine was at normal running temp. it started dieing when coming to a stop I was able to restart it ea. time then a couple days later it would'nt restart unless it was jumped. I just purchased a new battery and had discoed those six wires that I had spliced I took it for a test drive but as soon as it was normal driving temp. it continued to die while coming to a stop unless I put it in neut. and keep my foot on the gas w/ the new battery it restarts w/out a jump but I believe that the battery charge won't last and it'll need to be jump started. Plz help I've never dealt w/this type of engine, when I turn the key to the on position there are warning lights but they go away as soon as it turns over there is one light on the very bottom right side that comes on when it's dieing
My friend & I solved the problem. The wires I mentioned are the two wiring harnessess attached to the Varible Induction Control (VIC) Motor, We spliced those back together and set the Idle Speed up approx.100 rpms. That seems to have solved that problem. I was up and running good for a couple of weeks when it started overheating constantly, Too say the least I was not loving life and after a week of hat my ole man got home (he's a trucker) and decided that it was the Thermostatm, so w/his guidance I installed a new thermostat, I've been back on the road again since the 4th of July, and loving life again. I'm still knocking on wood, holding my breath (just a little), and praying all stays well & good....

Dude,the wiring thing was kinda scary... duct tape & all. Anyway ,I think the problem is fuel,i.e. fuel pump & filter to be safe. Check the pressure to be sure. Leave the burnt wires alone!!
