Suddenly dies and then won't restart until I monkey with the wire running from the coil to the distributor. Then is seems to run fine.
According to the volt gauge, at idle I am at 13 volts but at higher rpms the volts go back to around 18. This happens even though I can see that the belt is not slipping.
Headlights pulse at highway speeds.
Temp gauge shows it running hotter than normal. Above mid-range at times.
I hear a new whining sound at idle that seems to disappear at speed.
I think I'll start with plugs and wires and then look at replacing the pickup coil.
Anyone know what replacing the timing belt will run me?
