My 1986 s12 with a Ca20 5-speed quit while going down the freeway today while heading home from my first road trip with it.
I tried everything I could think of and finally got a hotel for the night. I could really use some ideas if anyone thinks they know what it could be.
Here is a quick run down of what happened and what I have checked so far:
Engine quit while cruising down the highway, coasted to the side.
Tried restarting and engine seems to be cranking over but seems quiter than normal.
The gas gauge was almost on empty. (one bar on the digital dash)
Put in a gallon of gas, no change.
Checked fuse box, and fusable links under battery, all good.
Checked all connections to positive battery post.
Checked the fuel pump, it makes about five seconds of noise when the ignition is turned on.
I'm new to this car so thats all I knew to check. Anyone have an idea or know a good repair shop in Kennewick Wa?
