My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.


When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

96 dodge ram sputters and dies whem you give it gas


you need to check fuel pressure with a pressure gauge to see if its within specs.it should be around 35psi and no lower then about 32psi.your problem sounds like a fuel pressure problem and the pump should be changed as well as the filter, but check to make sure the fuel filter is not plugged as this can also cause a pressure problem.

Car works fine for 15- 20 minuts then stalls, try


Are you able to check the ECU for faults. On this car there is an access to the ECU. With the use of an analog multi-meter you can check the ECU for faults; gives you signals like a morse code using dots and dashes with the meter's needle Doing this could lead you right to the problem. With no spark could be the No. 1 Cylinder Top Dead Center is failing; this is within the distributor on the SOHC engine (it uses light pulses thru a rotating disc to establish spark) A long shot being the wire harness. Our son has 93 Stealth with same engine he was having runability problems. It would idle fine and even rev fine in "Park" Once placed in gear it would seemingly sputter and die out. By a stroke of luck one night (no lights on) I saw a small blue spark coming from the wiring to / from the coil. On investigation found the the coil bracket had rubbed thru the insulation on wiring. When in Park it was no problem but once placed in gear the engine would slightly torque and push the bracket in to the wiring causing a short and the engine to die. Any chance you have or can use a meter? I can get you the codes.

Best regards,
Tom
