97 no start w/out start fluid, and dies
I have a 97 PSD, 5spd. The other day i was driving into town, everything was fine, until i pushed in the clutch to stop, and it died. wouldn't idle. let the clutch out, compression started it, it started. drove it home, again, wont idle.
I checked the IPR and it has 500psi cranking. If i shoot it with starting fluid, it will start, and run, if i turn the key off, and try to start it back up, again wont start on it's own. shoot starting fluid, it starts, and idles. then it died again, just randomly.
Replaced the fuel filter, didn't help it.
at idle, the IPR has 550-600psi.
also tried changing the CPS, again still wont start on it's own, and randomly dies.
I thought it was tied in with temperature, but i am not positive about that.
if you keep it revved above idle, it will stay running, until you bring it down to idle.
I thought of the ICP O ring, but i have figured out they give different symptoms.
some suggestions would be appreciated.
