Re: ENGINE STALLS WHILE DRIVING @ 2000 RPMS
VERY POSSIBLE! Please turn off the caps.
First thing, an engine dosn't stall at high rpm's, it dies. Stalls occur at idle. The first thing you have to do is determine if it is fuel or spark. If it was spark, and you have a tach, the tach would jump. So pay close attention to the tach when it dies. Another possibility could be the stator assy in the dist. When vacuum is applied to the advance, it will moves the primary wires, and over time will cause them to become open, and loose spark. A quick test for this is simply unplugging the vacuum line to the dist. and see if the dieing problem goes away.
There are a few checks that you can do on the fuel pump. Pressure, volume, and sucking air.
You may want to first try to determine if it is fuel or spark to hunt down the problem.
