    Stalling issue, no restart

    Car started and ran normally tonite after work,..... so i manually adjusted the FP up to 40 .... and of course no change. Now that i see how it reacts to RPM, i see why when it was running poorly the FP raised to 40. Low RPM, low vacuum,... = higher FP. I'll disconnect the ECM tomorrow...

    Thanks for the reminder about line off. All my measurements have been line on. I’m going to manually bump it to 40 (line on) while it’s idling correct and see if it shits the bed like it’s been doing.

    But what’s it do at 40?

    Stalling issue, no restart

    Went out to the car 10 minutes after shutting of off, started up and idled correctly, took throttle and FP was back to 36 where it is normally set.

    another update.... been driving the car at every opportunity.... i've put 54 miles on it before it acted up. This time i happened to have the fuel pressure gauge still connected and noticed the FP at 40 psi. at idle. Could this be my problem ? Over-fueling ? I've got an adjust able on...

    This is going to sound stupid, and i know the responses i'll get,...... but i don't see how the crank sensor can be adjusted. There is so little room between the fins of the sensor and the tone ring, i could not move it any direction without it touching the tone ring.

    ahhh..... ok. thank you. I have an OEM type. That said,... started the car today (frist time since my last post (like 2+ months) let it idle for about 20 mins and it just shut off. Fuel pressure was good. Restarted normally,... and idled for another 40 mins flawlessly. Got brave and...

    What CAP are you talking about ? I'm finally making time for this POS again and going thru all the posts to refresh my brain. Also, i cut the old fuel filter apart with a tubing cutter and there was NOTHING in it. (nothing clogging it)

    A fuel filter and an hour of test driving.... hwy, thru town, stop and go, and several hard pulls, and it hasn't missed a lick. There was some stuff that came out of the fuel filter, nothing unexpected .... wish i could figure out a way to cut it apart and really have a look. Time will tell.....

    Update: Looks like the crank sensor was the issue. Put a new GM unit on tonite,.... what a PIA that was... and took it on a longer test drive than i've been able to do so far. Actually was able to get it to temp, 180* and do another few hard pulls. No popping, or cutting out. Thanks...

    Stalling issue, no restart

    Thought it was fixed,..... the symptoms changed from barely running and stalling out to being able to drive it around but then if you got on it, it would pop thru the intake, buck and fart, and go back to normal as soon as you got out of the gas. Swapped coils and it seemed to be fixed...

    Thanks Chuck, i've been reading up on Scanmaster readings trying to see where i might be off, and everyone reports having O2 readings much lower than mine, like 441. Mine are in the 800's. Why the huge difference ? How would i know if my chip idles in OL ? It's a TT chip, and was a...

    Stalling issue, no restart

    UPDATE: borrowed a coil and module from a friend..... figured i'd start the car and let it get to the point where it runs crappy so i could then quickly swap the parts and see if it was instantly fixed. Car ran for about 15 mins then died with really no symptoms beforehand. I cycled the...

    Hi Scooby, the exhaust smells bad, stinky rich. I going to throw a different module and coil pack at it tonite and see what happens. What you described its eactly what it does. After a short drive, or idling for about 5 mins, is when it acts up. I agree, the AF does look like shit. I'd...

    Hi Chuck, thanks for the input. I did initially think it was a fuel issue, and have added 5 gals. I can hear the pump at each key cycle, and when it's acting up the fuel pressure is still in a decent range. I would think if it was starving for fuel, i wouldn't have any, or much FP. I have...
