I recently have been doing a lot of work on my 1989 Club Wagon. I'm trying to make it reliable in a way I can drive it cross country! I need some advice though... I started my van the other day and it ran for about 3-4 minutes pretty normal before the engine just slowed down and stopped!

I've changed the: alternator, battery, air intake control valve, spark plugs, distributor, and MAP sensor. Not sure why it would do this but I'm looking for any recommendations!

ALSO: I think the temperature gauge in my van is out... it constantly reads all the way on "C" when I know the engine isn't cold... Any tips for replacing that? Thanks for any help in advance!

I believe your engine should have a temp sensor for the ecu and a seperate sender for the dash. The sender may be defective.

How old is the fuel filter? It could be plugged.

Have you LOAD tested the alternator and battery since replacing both to check voltage and charging rate ? Possibly fuel pump failing ?
