Probing The Probe

OK I am having problems with this probe I bought. I bought it knowing it needed work, so this is no surprise to me


I have replaced:

Distributor cap/rotor
Fuel Filter
Spark plug wires
o2 sensor
and Belts.

What it has that doesn't belong there is an after market intake, which I need to replace to stock box and tube.

She ran it with that intake on there for a long time. Now what it is doing is:


Starts then shuts off, starts then shut off, starts and then stays running.
That happen in that order twice so far.

While idling it will stay running just fine. I can rev it just fine from .75RPM to 2k RPM without any problems.

After 2k and upto 4k if I hold it at a certain rpm it will lop out and then pick back up.

After 4k and above it will lop out and shut off.

I can sit there and rev it none stop without holding it at any certain RPM and it will not cut out.

If I drive it it will continue to cut off, but I am able to start it right back up, no probs!

What could be causing this to my car?

Re: Probing The Probe

Ok so I did a test around the block to try and get some more symptoms. And this is what I noted


I was able to idle

I was able to accelerate with under 1.5 RPMs

As soon as 2k hits it lops out, sometimes shutting off

I was able to get it to 35MPH but couldnt keep it because I need more RPMS

Anyone has anything please help, I need this fixed so I can move on
