had to minimize all the vacuum lines and I have

Most common on these was the crank position sensor, symptoms were either a total,no start or it would start and run till it got to operational temps then shut down, wait a few minutes would start back up and run till it got hot again then shut down, if this accurately describes what your experancing then replace the sensor. If not then you may need to have the rig live data scanned until it fails then the tech can see what went away at time of failure. HTH


I think you need to hook the vacuum lines back up where they belong , the way it was designed to run
