Losing power/stalls

Losing power/stalls

Postby woodstone [OP] » March 2nd 2012, 3:43am

I changed my dist cap and rotor with little difference, then discovered the ignition coil was doing this so I changed it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P33-mdtR ... ceZjrVkP7E

It seems to run better and not misfire like it used to, but it still hesitates and stalls randomly. I have not changed the spark plugs or wires, maybe thats something to do? Fuel filter? Any help is appreciated.

P.s i just got this van for $200 last week and I'm trying to fix it up to be a reliable commuter.

Easiest way is to do a full tune up and see if that fixes it. Maybe start with the fuel filter
