Then the problem can reappear or dissapear for days at a time. We notice that the engine seems to have this problem in the late afternoon when it’s hotter (we live in a warm climate). The engine can stall after driving after both short and long distances.
We have cleaned the gas tank, cleaned the fuel lines, changed the fuel filter; checked all the vacuum tubes, changed the air filter; cleaned the MAF; changed the spark plugs and changed the ignition coil. The problem is starting to get worse with more black smoke. The car computer was tested and does not show any errors, but the car computer doesn’t have any memory on it. The check engine light does not appear. My mechanic says it could be the fuel pump. Is he on to something? Could it be sensor connections to the MAF? Sensor connections to other parts of the engine? Could it be the fuel injection or fuel regulator? Any thing else?
have the same problem?
