Question about 1989 Pontiac Sunbird
I have a 89 sunbird GT turbo conv. i unplugged the vacuum line for the waste gate and now when i hit 4800-5200 rpm the motor shuts down and when the motor idles down a little it turns back on with the check engine light on. but it stays on for about 3 sec. then goes out. someone told me there is a safety thing that makes it do that.is there a way to bypass it. if there is please tell me how....
When the fuel system can"t provide any more fuel it will cut off (similar to electronic speed cut) to save itself from leaning out. Its not a good idea to take that hose off as it will boost itself to death, it has no way of controling how much boost is run and it'll be a matter of what goes first, the engine or the turbo.
