Check for fuel and spark. As long as you are getting the CEL it is just a matter of isolating down the system that is giving you the problem.

Okay, we got it running for about 5 minutes, and then it started running rough and died... Now it wont start.. No spark now... Could it be a coil going bad, opening up when it gets warm?? That is the ONLY thing that I can think of... We are now shaking our heads, stumped.

Went back out, took the plug off the front side of the coil pack (accel aftermarket) and tried to start it.. It tried to fire it off, but could not. Tells me it is a bad coil pack...

What you think??

I went outside this morning to work on it, turned the key, it fired right up, idled for 20 minutes, shut it off, let it set, turned the key and it fired right off AGAIN... Has not died yet... I wont trust it though until I figure out what the problem is...

Still going to replace the coil LOL

I drove it around town (SMALL town) this afternoon... Something is off slightly, so I will prolly replace the coil, the harness going INTO the coil and give it a tune up and see if that helps any...

Okay, it runs fine for a while... I can drive it around town for a while, and then park it, get back into it an hour or two later and it starts, and runs for a while, then it starts losing power.. But it will start back up immediatelly... Is this MAYBE a lose ground or something?? I am PUZZLED now...
