SOURCE: Sudden shut down

Hmm, this sounds like a electrical problem involving the ignition control module (computer) or the body control module.  They may not be bad but they are not getting power.  This could be due to one of many connection or relay problems.  Unless you know how to diagnose electrical problems yourself, you will need to get it to the shop.

You're right; It sounds like fuel delivery, but start with the simplest suspects first.
Change the fuel filter(s) first, and if this doesn't get it, go for the fuel pump.

My 88 plymouth reliant has just stopped working. I have changed the spark plugs, wires, fuel pump, and fuel pump relay. i've also changed the fuel filter twice now. i've checked to see if it has spark and...


Check the ignition timing is correct. I see that you have changed the wires so I suggest that you recheck the firing order for the plugs as it is easy to get it wrong when replacing the leads.

My 89 reliant starts but runs rough and shuts off. replaced plugs and wire, cap and rotor. O2 sensor, and basic maintenance. ran better for a little while(about a month) Now cutting off again. any ideas


You may need to replace the ignition module it sounds like a weak ignition component. Before doing this try retrieving the engine trouble codes you should be able to purchase a code reader at an advance auto parts store for about $30.00.

CORRECT IGNITION TIMING PROCEDURE


I don't know who posted that but yes you need to use a timing light. Unplug the coolant temp sensor and set the timing to what the underhood sticker says with a timing light.
