Actually a 1988 Buick century limited, 3.8 and the fuel pump relay the web sites I check is wrong as I pull relay and car will still run and start with relay disconnected.
it stalls out randomly at all driving conditions. I am stumped on this one. anyone have help for me on this???
I have changed the plugs and wires, changed the coil and coil module along with changing the crank sensor but still no fire to or from the coils
according to absolute auto express inertia cut off switch is drivers side beside the trunk hinge or pass side floorboard next to the kick panel
it all rusted and pipe would be cheaper to install
