Hesitation in 86' 5ktq
-My 86' 5ktq (138k mi.) cuts out at odd times. It seems to be a combination of throttle position, rpm, and turbo spool. Regardless, when at heavy load, such as when passing on the freeway, running up a long hill in 5th, or brisk acceleration from a stop, the engine cuts out as if loosing spark, but will then run if I back off or downshift. I am a poor graduate student living in rural Virginia and the local guy wants to start by installing a new ecu!
Please give me leads, my wife wants to replace it with a Subaru, she doesn't quite understand! I need to keep this thing doing OK until I score the big job this summer. My dad bought this car new and it was very well maintained until I went back to school.Kartikey
