Older van that sat for a few months. It had some rough running issues so I changed out the plugs and wires, TPS and the EGR assembly and it ran great for about 3 months.
Then the engine light came on but I could find nothing. Then the occasional stumble in acceleration and some slight surging.
Codes, 21 and 32. O2 sensor and EGR again.
Side note - I cannot get the !#$@ O2 sensor off and since I have broken one off before. Am procrastinating some;-)
Now --- it starts right up but after a few minutes stumbles, misfires, quickly decreasing power until none.
If on the road I turn it off, wait awhile then start and limp home. Sometimes the gas smells very bad.
I changed the fuel filter because it sounds like it is not getting fuel, (and we all hope its something stupidly simple), NOT.
Checked fuel pressure and it SLOWLY rises to 38 psi when I start it and stays even after it is shut off.
Longer crank time now I assume because the pressure needs to rise and if I let it idle it will stall after approx. 3 minutes. Starts up again or have to wait a few minutes.
have the same problem?
