Hey guys... I have a ghost of a problem... It's happened three times to me. With my engine warm... sometimes it starts up... the tach goes up to about 2000 or 2500 and then drops down to zero instead of staying at about 750. Afterwards the engine won't start forabout 4-8 cranks... usually an elapsed time of 1 min between stall and finally starting. Also(i don't know if it matters) the engine runs rougher between 1000-1250 on the tach...
I have replaced the spark plugs, spark plug wires, roter, cap, and used about 3 cans of fuel injector cleaner. Anybody have any clue... I'm thinking it could be the EGR valve, fuel filter, or maybe throttle body. Oh, and i am using the non-recomended 10-35 instead of 10-30 regular oil. Anybody have any clue? Thanks I appriciate it.

Did you replace the O-ring in the dist. cap ?? I found that made a BIG difference in mine !! Since I replaced the O-ring, it hasn't happened to me again !!

mine did the same thing after i bought it...it kept stalling when driving and when idle. Try pressing the gas before it starts to stall. Sounds something fuel related. Fuel pump, filter, etc
my problem when away when i started driving it daily and it went away. Also check for any tears in the wires. I had that problem once and the sparks generated caused the car to stall.
Good luck
