All, I picked up a beautiful 1-owner, low mileage, always garaged 1998 Manual Trans 4WD EX for our oldest child.
(on my bucket list I want all of our kids to learn how to drive a manual & it's also a great anti-theft & anti-text feature!)
Anyhow, it's started to completely shut off the engine after about 15 minutes of run time.
The engine will crank so battery & starter are working great.
If a jump starter is put on the battery then it'll start right up.
I'm thinking it might be the PGM-FI Main Relay on passenger side between glove box & right wall.
This relay controls FI & Fuel Pump.
I removed it (5 min job) & bench tested it per page 11-189 of Service Manual & all 3 tests show good continuity & that it's working.
BUT, I've heard that they may have some interior continuity issues when they get warm.
Anyone have experience with this issue & what was resolution?
Thank you very much!
