My Son's stock street Samurai, except for header and 2" exhaust w/flowmaster use to run like a champ, i.e. 85 MPH.
Still runs good sitting still during warm up, at idle and for about 500 yards. Then it starts sputtering and acts like the ignition is turned off (though it does not konk out), no power, slows to a stop, then acts like the ignition is turned back on, can run fine for a minute then the process is repeated. Basically non-driveable. I guess in Haynes manual terms "Missing thru out the driving range". Have replaced/installed: New fuel filter, new fuel pump, new coil, new distributor cap and rotor, new spark plugs and wires, new timing belt, another distributor, another computer, new oversized grounds (battery/engine/body to frame), another ignition, compression check (170 for all), changed to Pony carb. Nothing helps. I'm out of ideas. Please help with something I've missed. Runs like a champ for a minute on the street. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
