-Remanufactered ECU from a great member here in the forum, which unfortunately i cannot remember his name! Great Guy! The most knowledgeable guy about 70's EFI here...
There is a lot more stuff that has been done, but i cannot remember.
Now i have a few issues, first:
1st. Starter is doing a big noise when turns the car on, like a metal on metal noise, sometimes if fails and only spins, sometimes turns fine.
Now, what should i do? Change the whole STARTER? Change just the Starter Drive and brush?
2ND. Battery is not holding much charge, how can i check alternator?
3rd (and BIGGEST PROBLEM). After i got the car for the first time, i drove it for 20 miles, and i noticed the car failing, (sorry about my English, i am from Brasil) failing and stalling, if i step in the gas pedal, car almost dies, after 2 more miles, car died... tried to turn it back on 3 times, battery is dead
After car spent whole night in the street, i woke, jump start the car and right away, engine is running PERFECTLY, ODD !!!!
I drove the car to my garage, had some lunch, decided to drive to a friends house 12 miles away, on the way, same thing, stalling, failing, and dies!!! i didn't tried to turn it right back on... i wait 10 minutes to cool down, and BAM! turns on right away! drove 1 mile same thing!!! then i waited 30 minutes, and car went fine all the way.
Now what the heck is going on? i could not find a coil in the car, does it have one? what could be causing this? there is 8 fuel injectors, if it is bad fuel or dirty fuel, i dint think it would run well cold and bad hot. looks like an electrical problem! Any ideas solutions?
PLEASE ANY HELP WOULD DO!
I had this car for 4 years now, drove it for the first time, yesterday and had this problem.
