View Full Version : S13 dying

Ok heres the prob. I've had my completely stock s13 as a daily for about 2 months now and recently the engines been dying, as in I would be driving then the rpms would slowly drop as I try to accelerate until the engine turns off. And when I would try to start it, either it would start up then die again or idle around 1400 rpms and as soon as I touch the gas peddle the rpms would instantly drop. So far me and my have tried switching MAFs and checking the fuel filter which both are in good working order. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I actually have the same problem now. Check fuel pressure. Mine turned out to be a bad fuel pump. If you have any starter fluid, try something with that. Also, check spark (just to make sure).

yeah my dad suggested checking out the fuel pump also, I don't believe spark is the problem but I'll make sure to check that out also thanks man.
