Subject: Re: Fuel control computer

Hello . Jerry , the fellow who posted this letter , is my dad and I have test driven the car so I think I can respond to the reply . I do not believe that it is a vibration problem . He already look at that . It does feel like a fuel control problem . I found that when it was running bad that their seems to be a dead stop when you try to accelerate . I believe that the engine light flashing indicates a fuel fault . Any know if that is True ? He already look at the O2 intake sensor . He believes that it is working fine , Their is a new fuel filter on it ( he did the easy stuff first ) . It seems that the only thing left is that computer that controls the fuel system . Does any out ever had to change one ? Thanks for your time. Ed. Ken Washington wrote in message <>... >Jerry, > >I own an 87 9000S 5spd with 164,800 miles.
