Crank Intermittent no start/Strt Stall
I have dug through the forums before bugging you all...
Just picked up a 90 Shelby 2.5 T1 Auto. Supposedly 76k miles.... not a chance. Put 600 miles on it since I got it. Ran ok for the most part until 2 nights ago. After that started getting worse. Would only run right at higher RPMs.
Would run rough at idle. Boost gauge would flutter between 10 and 3 psi when barely on the peddle. Figured vac leak.
Today, on the way to Advanced, she stalled.
Got her towed, and rebuilt all the vacuum lines. Figured why go through this again.
Crank, will start with starting fluid, but will die quickly. Without it, if I manage to start her, she will run for a second, then die. If she manages to stay running, the engine violently shakes unless I keep moving the throttle, then she just shakes less, before eventually dying.
Pulled feed line, fuel popped out. Would not spray when I turn the key on.
Checked vac lines, all clear.
Injectors firing (since she will run intermittently).
Cant check timing since she wont run long enough. But distributor has not moved.
Fuel filter appears to be very new. Best guess is within 6 months by the lack of corrosion on the housing and the clamps.
Going to pull the plugs next and do a visual, but wanted to throw this up there to get some minds clicking on it.
Thanks to all in advance....
