Then stick to the cat and vac leaks, how are you testing for vac leaks? Like I said you won't see the leak, need to test for it/them.

Update-

Not the cat....

I pulled the maf off again.. Notice two terminals are corroded..

I'm getting a replacement from a local fanatic...

Once new maf is in I'm also going to replace the fuel filter....

If it fails still... I guess compression test will be next... I have to buy the tool so it's gonna have to wait.. It's fairly cheap I know but I'm on a strict budget..

**UPDATE**

Received a new maf today from Adam Graf... Was a beautiful day so i didnt want to wait till this weekend and i did a swap... And sadly it wasn't the maf either... Car idled fine for about 5 minutes... As soon as I accelerate it starts bogging down and finally dies...

I can also drive the car while its cold.. But like I said 5ish minutes later it dies...

Depending on budget I'm going to buy a compression tool and try that..

I also sprayed carb cleaner on the lines and it had no effect on idle... So no leak to notice..

Expensive game changing parts blindly... Sean did what I told him and found the vac leak, he made a tester that he found on google and one of us posted it in this thread earlier. It stalls or dies?

I'm not handy I guess im a bit scared building it.. ( i know lol) But I will try it asap hopefully I do it right lol thanks man. I appreciate it..

And it starts bogging down on idle. Then just dies... I try to turn it back on. And it's on for a second then dies... I have to wait about an hour or two before it turns on again...

So it dies... with a vac leak it will start and run, maybe needs to throttle up so it won't stall but runs. Always need to check for leaks anyway and you ptobably have one but not the issue. How old is your fuel pump and filter? O2 sensor? If you can borrow a SCT will be great. When it warms up the ECU relies on the engine sensors to keep it running, mainly o2 sensors, not when cold.

Fuel pump is under a year old.
Fuel Filter is the original.
O2 sensors are the original.

The car is from 2000 with 60,000 miles... It sat for 7 years tho due to budget and tuning issues...

This car is driving me nuts..

Definetely change fuel filter, even more after sitting that long, guess you flushed the tank too? See what happens after...if still the same unplug the 02 sensor (while cold) and start the car see if it runs after warm.

Edit-it will throw a code, need to reset the ECU after.

Sorry for some reason i couldnt find this in tapatalk.. wth...


anywho.. The tank was emptied when car was parked- and when new fuel pump was put in..

So on my list to do is fuel filter-

You said unplug the o2 sensor? Wouldn't unplugging my sensor cause me to run super rich?

Would unplugging it if its bad cause it to stop having the issue of bogging down and dying?

Sorry for the noob questions- I'm still a youngins on working on my own cars lol

Wouldn't a dirty fuel filter cause it not to run at all at idle? Why would it only die at temp? Or under load?

And want to fly out here and look at it?? Lmao jk
