5KT: Mysterious intermittent stall
Has this happened to anyone out there? My '85 5KT (154K) will
occasionally (a) stall while coming to a stop, and (b) not
start for a few minutes. So far, it has always started fine
after letting it sit for a few minutes.
Either myself or my mechanic have done the following:
1. Distributor cap and rotor replaced.
2. Fuel pump relay replaced.
3. Fuel filter replaced.
4. Six-month-old ISV (VDO).
Idle is somewhat low and rough when the engine is cold, but fine
No apparent vacuum leaks: boost gauge registers 0.4 or so at idle
and 1.5-1.6 at full boost (it's got a Charlie Smith spring in it).
Could these be symptoms of a dying fuel pump, by any chance? Any
