Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just died one day. Replaced distributor, spark

alternator, replaced, ecm, replaced knock sensor.
Added fuel treatment & premium gas. Car starts at
random runs for a while. Randomly jerks when you
accelerate. When at a stoplight you have to put in
neutral and keep RPm's up. Then it just dies.

Automatic 4cyl US non California. Tachometer keeps going crazy when you rev the engine. Still indicates all the stuff we fixed.

This Diagnostic Connector should be located under hood...driver side. Suggest you use a FUSED jumper wire. The procedure is detailed on line. Google your Make/Model/Year.
