    I have a 94 Integra LS with a vtek engine. The car sat for several years and last month I replaced the ignition coil, battery and fuel pump. It ran great till this morning. On the interstate the power suddenly fell off like it was starving for fuel. I was able to limp the 14 miles back home on back roads.

    All the while the car would run for about 1 minute and then begin to sputter, loose power and come to a stop. At times it would stall out, back fire slightly and coast to a stop. Once it sat for about 1 minute I could start it and it would repeat the process. At one point I even got a police escort to the parts store. LOL. Changed the fuel filter, car started right up and ran for about 5 min. Took for a test ride and it started all over again.

    Any ideas??
