Last night my 86 se 2.8 died. ame arund a corner and as I accelerated it died just cut out. This happen to me a week ago to changed out the ICM but I take that was not it. This time when it happened I did notice that the fuel pump was still running and when I tried to crank it over I had smoke comming from the tail pipe. I finally got it going but had to put it to the floor to get it going. once it was running I reved it a few time it clear out and i drove it for about five miles with no problems and no smoke. started right back up and still no smoke. Can anyone help me in the right direction.
I have replaced in the last 4000 miles IAC ICM Coil plug and wires Distributor o2 sensor
After I replaced the ICM it was running fine the poof it dies again four days later
did it when I replaced distributor with a new icm in it. Changed back to the original icm and problem went away. Back then it would die but start right back up. This time I would have to work at it to get it started.
Does it just act like it shut off, or does it sputter? When it dies, pull the cap off the valve for the fuel line and see if you have gas squirting out (after priming the pump by turning on the key, or powering the fuel pump at the ALDL).
It just dies, yes to the stuff under the ICM. JUst started it agian this morning and it started right up the died after a min. Took alittle to start up but once again the fuel pump continued to run after the car died.
