My 92 has 53k miles on it and needs to be driven more. About 2 months ago I took the car for a short ride and I barely got home as the car was trying to stall out. I do have heat from both exhausts.
I looked under the hood and I saw arcing on one of the plug wires.
So I’ve cleaned the vee, replaced plugs, coils, leads & fuel injector connectors and made some minor repairs to the loom, which is in overall good condition. I raised it and wrapped it with special heat tape too.I have a replacement Marelli rotor but I did not see anything wrong with the existing one so I have not replaced it yet. A few months ago I replaced the CPS.
I also cleaned out the mouse crap.
After completing the work the car cranks fine but after a short time…perhaps a few minutes, it starts to stall as though it’s starved of gas.
To compound things I have a strange odor inside the car that smells like a strange burning smell but I cannot see any issues under the hood.
I am aware of the need to check the hose running to the ECU is clean and I will do that tomorrow. Is it recommended to disconnect that at both ends and blow it out?
I’m seeking other input as I start to turn my attention to this car from my XJ40 and X300 which have been pre-occupying me.
Separately I’d like some input on parts to fabricate testing fuel pressure although that does not seem to be an issue.
