I've replaced the Throttle Body before our last talk. Today I replaced the EGR, EGR solonoid, spark control module, pcv valve, all vacumn lines, even the one to the Vac. Canister & it still runs alright for several seconds then Boggs down like its cold or running out of gas. Paddle the throttle a little & it'll catch up & run OK again for several seconds then Boggs down again. It finally tried to idle but it'd start to bogg down & like a governor kicking in, it idle up & run Ok for several seconds again then bogg down again. Like it running out of gas or al older carburetor type engine that's cold & the choke isn't working very well.
Outside of fuel pump & fuel filter problems, I'm at a loss. I've got a code reader coming Tuesday PM & hopefully it'll show me something.
In your last note, you said to check the gaskets under the bi? That's the injectors on top of the throttle body. Right. Or did I misunderstand? It's a new "refurbished" TB, but I've had brand new parts that were defective. Especially starters in the 70's. Am I correct about the bi? I haven't checked those. I thoughtid double check on what you meant.
I'll let ya know what the code reader tells me Tues. Or Wed. I spent 2.5hrs under the hood today & I'm feeling it. Funny thing is, the EGR was very easy to replace, even though the 2 nuts were a Lil awkward to get to. 20mins & I was done with that part.
