Engine Mechanical problem
1993 Dodge Shadow 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 80000 miles
I have a funny problem. My dodge shadow will start only for 5 mins then it will not restart for a long time. I have replaced the fuel filter and confirm 40psi of constant fuel pressure all the way to the fuel regulator. Also I have noticed that crud is spitting out my exhaust onto the snow when the engine is running but oil and coolant do not seem to be changing their level so I don't think its burning that. Could this be a fuel regulator or fuel injector problem. Also I used a noid light to confirm good working electrical to the inject. I have also just recently changed the spark plugs which are crudding up but a dry crud not like when a cylinder is burning oil. And I have had the battery and the alternator professionally tested a week prior.
Please help I'm running out of ideas and I need a reliable car that does not keep costing me for tows.
Thanks for your help
