Car looks amazing ... 185 like yours is the only thing I would part with my 165 for. I would bet if the fuel filter was clogged you'd have driveability issues too not just a stall ... but if its old I'D change it anyways ...

The fuel filter and starter were both changed yesterday and the problem still exist. I started another thread for it but the video is here.

Stalls as soon as the fan kicks on.

Have you tried jumping the fuel pump in the diag box? The fuel pump resistor does funny things them it goes bad.

I found and fixed a broken wire coming from the chargecooler and it idled w/o stalling for 45 mins. Test drive will be tomorrow or in a few months.

Also check and rip out any dodgy alarm/immobiliser wiring. Caused mine to stall randomly. :shoots:

I found a little box connected to the ECU, Italian tuner company. I had it removed during the install. Didn't find anything else. Going to focus on the other big items for the project and post pics when they come in...

I changed the fuel pump Saturday and was still having no-crank problems. I did the starter relay mod today and she fired right up. :D

I was able to drive around the neighborhood for 20-30 mins, turn off and crank back up a few times. Tomorrow I'll button her up, add gas, and see how it goes...

SHE LIVES!!! I finally figured out my problems: two blown capacitors on the ecu, loose pin at ecu, bad spark plug wire and bad coil. Changed them all along with the igniter and plugged in a straight berk patch cable. What's tricky is that I got continuity on the back of the oem ecu harness, but nothing at the berk harness. So I wiggled the oem harness until i got continuity, reached over and cranked and she fired right up! Idles fine, but misfires with gas. I'll do a permanent repair of the pin and see if that solves the misfiring.

Footnotes: No NE signal completely kept it from getting spark.
- ignition signals were good to back of oem ecu harness but pins weren't making contact. Would still be looking if I didn't have the patch harness.

I passed inspection, got the car re-registered and am good to take the car to Germany where the project will live on.

I saw a lot of threads about catch cans, installed one while the car was down and ran into some issues i didn't have before installing it. The fittings on the can are smaller than that on the valve cover causing the pressure to build up enough to create a leak somewhere around the distributor. It looks like the pressure builds up enough for the valve cover seal to leak and burst oil out on the distributor and charcoal canister. After cleaning it up, there is no sign of a leak until the car is driven again. I'll be removing the catch can immediately and see if the problem goes away.

There is an interesting article somewhere on here about the PVC and the pressures, it may be helpful in figuring out a setup that works. I never heard of anyone have any troubles before though.

What kind of catch can is it? It might be clogged/blocked.
