I am trying to fix this car for my young nephew. When u first start it, it runs fine for 15 sec or so. Then it will not run faster than an idle. I checked the fuel injectors resistance and all read about 14 ohms. Injectors wires on cyl 1 and 4 will stall the engine when disconnected. Disconnecting wires on cyl 2 and 3 injectors have no affect at all. I swapped the injectors and had hoped the problem would follow the injectors but it didnt. I have read the mass air flow sensor could cause the inability to accelerate but I am bewildered as to why diconnecting cyl 2 and 3 injector wired has no affect on the engine running. There is a busted sensor screwed in the back of the intake manifold and no one knows what this sensor is. So I am having a hard time replacing it. Is this is the air temp sensor? And could this or the mass air flow sensor be the source of my problem or do you think it is the ECU? Any help would be greatly appreciated. My nephew does'nt have a daddy and I am trying to help him.
