Question about 1993 Plymouth Colt Vista
Engine starts fine then stops after 3-5 minutes of idle. If driven right after starting it will drive 1-3 miles before stopping. Either case, will not restart for 5 minutes up to 2 hours. have replaced front engine seal, timing belt, distributor in 8/09 and transaxles, water pump, transmisssion, fuel filter, spark plugs in 04/10. Problem seems to be the same as when I had the distributor replaced. what's next?
Did you replaced your whole distributor or just the cap and the rotor? Have you check the pressure on you fuel line it could be your fuel pump.

Throttle Body Cleaning
You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.
