  1. Joe, sorry to take a while to respond. I haven't yet obtained the diagnostic program. The biggest thing is...it's revving fine now! Of course, this could just be temporary, but a change in usage is what I believe responsible I had read elsewhere online that these engines dislike running below 3000rpm. I had been trundling through town in the low 2000s. Now, I make a conscious effort to stay above 3000 in those situations, and it seems to have taken care of the problem. I hope. Thanks for your efforts. I'll have a reference if that is not the case.
  2. I haven't checked timing. I just bought this '99 about 10 days ago. I've only recently tried running up towards redline, and every time it dies out just past 6k. No codes. Love the car, but this is a bit weird.
  3. Joe Hurst: glad you started this. Mine is doing exactly the same thing, hitting brick wall at 6k. I was going to just throw a fuel filter on it but you have elevated the game a bit. Awaiting your test results!
