Hey HT, here is the deal..just got my car back running again. changed the alternator and fuel pump, (which is why it wasnt running in the first place). since then everything has been good. hadnt been running for awhile but was full of gas, drained that when i put the fuel pump in. have since filled it up with fresh gas atleast 3 or 4 times. today it started up fine but when i was making a 5 mintute trip up the street i could feel that it was stuttering like it was miss firing or the injectors were clogged. i took that into account but kept pushing on but wasnt running it ragged by any means. through out the drive every once and awhile the rpms would jump up and idle at like 2500 until i would hit the pedal real quick and they would drop back down to normal. I got into my neighborhood and it started to stutter real bad then died while i was driving and the batt. light came on for a few seconds. i was still coasting and it was dead so i put it in gear and popped the clutch to start it back up when i did. smoke came out the exhaust and it died again. never threw a CEL or anything!! pulled over let it sit, opened the hood you could feel it was hot! let it sit for a few more minutes then tried again but nothing. Somebody, Anybody, please help me figure this shit out!
