22re randomly starts then dies . . . repeatedly - 12/08/18 08:00 PM
My 88 22re recently quit on me while driving. It always started again but would only run for 2 or 3 seconds, then sputter and die (had to have it towed home). No engine codes. I let it sit for over a week, replaced the fuel pressure regulator, then it started and ran perfectly. I drove it a few miles to the store. When I started it to go home, it did the same thing; started, ran for 2 or 3 seconds, then died - several times. After waiting a few minutes it started and I was able to rev it enough that it pushed through the sputtering, ran fine, and got me home. Now I'm paranoid to take it out anywhere as it seems to do this randomly. Don't think it would be the fuel pump or it wouldn't run at all - right? Any thoughts?
