I wanted to give you an update on my problem. First of all I still have the intermittent starting problem. I have done the following since my last note: Acting on the advice of a local Mechanic, I replaced the Ignition Control Module (along with the three coils). That did not fix the problem. Fortunately I was told that if it wasn't the problem I could bring it back, so I did. The good news on that is that is cost a little time and gas, but nothing else. A "free" move. I have replaced the fuel filter. Actually, the connections were rusted so I had a mechanic change it. While he was at it, I had him check the fuel pressure. The fuel pressure read between 35 and 40, which he said was ok. When he reved the engine the pressure went up. He said that was as it should be, however it must be noted that at that moment in time, the car was functioning well, and not having the intermittent problem.
Am I still looking at a possible fuel pump here? I have also been told it might be some kind of sensor. I would be grateful for an idea on this, since the car has now eaten most of my money and is still misbehaving. Personally, I'm thinking a few sticks of dynamite.
