Starts and dies
My 88 5ktq
Today while in a rush to leave work early for a Drs visit the car would
start and run when cranked but die when the key was released. I quick
swapped in a fuel pump relay, same thing.
I can crank it while holding my hand on the relay. I feel it click when
the key goes on, click when I crank and un-click when I release the key.
I'm thinking ignition switch. I will also check for a problem with teh
crank/flywheel sensor. We've seen them get covered with "hair" like a
magnet dragged through sand used to do when I was a kid. They don't get a
crank signal. Wiping off teh hair and the car starts. But it does start
