    i recieved the car for free minus interior and powersteering pump other than that car in top shape and have most interior parts. however the guy that gave me the car told me that they could not get the car to go over 25 miles an hour. When i drove it around the block i got up to about 45 but i dun have tags on it so i didnt wanna push my luck if that helps.

    i have about 45 pounds of pressure so its getting fuel its something telling the computer to shut down cuz even with starter fluid it wont stay running.. idk if its a sensor i replaced the oil pressure switch, switched out the ign mod and a new coil. which is a pain to change out lol and i still cant figure it out. itll idle at about 400 then just die out if you touch the gas or after a short period of time

My car is doing the exact same thing. these cars have a tendancy to jump time. the best way to check is to pull ur plugs and turn the motor over by hand till the #1 cylinder(front left side of engine) is up. u tell if its up by putting a screwdriver or something in the hole. then go to ur distributer and see if the rotor tip is on the #1 spot on the cap. if not the timing is off.

Check the fuel delivery system.. before you start your car turn the key on and listen towards the gas tank and double check to make sure fuel pump is working.. replacing the fuel filter and running injector cleaner will always help your car run alot better and only costs 25 bucks total

I would want to know if you have at least 12 volts at the battery posts, and also at the starter. You need to know if the cables are causing the problem, or something else.
Once the engine starts, it should be running off the alternator, but it still needs the battery in the circuit.
