My check engine light IS on.
Injectors are spraying fuel.
When it idles it will do fine as long as it is not in gear then it dies shortly after you put it there or just as you shift it the motor shuts down , like the key was turned off.
Wish I had a Technical Service Manual for this thing. Best I have is a Haynes and it is MIA at the moment.
On a side note; Is there an upgrade for the ignition sysytem on these beasts? On my Jeep there is a TFI (Ford style) ignition upgrade that I put the MSD6A box in it and it smoothed out the idle and running capabilities alot.
Is it normal to foul out a dist cap every 10,000 miles? Going back a few years when this was a daily driver still every 10,000 miles or so it would stat dieing at inter sections. When I would check the cap and button they would both have major deposits on them. Change plugs,cap,button and all would be fine for another 10,000 miles. Will brass eliminate this issue?
Its last road trip (2006) to Ft. Wayne, IN, shortly after I fueled up it started running like it was on 4 cylinders. 30 minutes later and all was well again. That condition has occured a few times since and right now is one of those cycles I believe. I have never noticed any problems with the fuel injectors when this issue happens.
