89 GTU shutting off while driving

Postby terrypop69 » Tue Mar 01, 2016 1:20 pm

Hello, I have been recently having issues with driving on the interstate and in town the car just shutting off I push in the clutch and sometimes it will start back up sometimes it needs to sit for a few. I have had it in a couple of shops and no one really knows what is going on with it dynode, fuel pressure ok. not real sure which way to turn without dumping a crap load of cash that could be unnecessary. Can you help

I would measure the resistance on the fuel injectors. I've had many that will cause the same symptoms because of an internal short. They should measure approximately 12 ohms when good.

ICM or Crank sensor can cause intermittent shutoffs.
