Car shutting off

Postby NW ST205 » Sun Feb 22, 2015 6:03 pm

Still having issues after letting a board member swap in a 3rd gen engine. $1300 was spent fixing the wiring that was just twisted together, but I haven't found everything. Today while warming the car up it just died and wouldn't start back up. This has happened several times before and each time after about an hour or so it's restarted. Any ideas?

This is going to sound crazy, but it has worked for me when my car exhibited similar symptoms.

Pull your EFI relay and bang it against something solid a few times then put it back in and see if the car will start.
