    New to this picked up 88 HF and it starts and runs till it is warm. If you are driving you feel the accelorator cut out violently then some times kick back on. If it doesn't kick back on the engine starves of no fuel then dies then it wont start again untill it has been sitting at least 30min. Dies about 10 min after starting if idleing or about 1 mile if driving. Any ideas. Stock motor by the way.

    Could be a main relay problem.. sounds like the typical symptoms. Is your ECU throwing any codes?

    yeah but it isn't relivent its throwing code 17 speed input but I do not have the cable hoooked up. Some one had told me that it could be the ignition coil so I check the resistance on it last night. between termals A and B i read .5 ohms and across A and Secondary winding read 11.465K ohms which should be in spec so I have ruled that out as the culprate. Going to test the ignitor tonight to see what comes of that. I will check the main relay tonight also to see if any of the contacts need to be soildered again.
