fickle fuel pressure
Bought an '89 200T with an odd problem. In the mornings on the way to
work the car will stall every 1/4 mile or so as if rudnning out of fuel.
Every time this happens I can hear the fuel pump scream. Once it warms
up it stalls less often, maybe every few miles, but the strangest thing
is that when the tank is full it stalls rarely if at all.
Remedies tried so far are, changing fuel filter, checking fuel pump
screen and pulling all my hair out. Everything I try while the engine
is running leads me nowhere since it insists on stalling only when
driving down the road.
It's a beautiful car and I sure wish I could drive it. I hope someone's
got some ideas.
