Engine will stall out after warming up and when it speeds up. I replaced the distributor pick-up coil, still stalls out due to the fact need to replace both distributor cap and rotor for the mere fact of corrosion on the inside.
Ramcharger, 1990, 318 motor, 4x4, replaced fuel pump, fuel filter, rotor, cap, and pick up plate. Truck stalls at random, won't start at random, spits back through the TPI. I was going to replace the crankshaft position sensor next, but was told this year truck does not have one. I have looked and can't find it.
When the truck is running sounds perfect, purs like a kitten with duel exhaust.
