This would seem to be the key.

"Spring of 2018 I got her out of the garage, hit the starter and she sprang to life, ready to roll. I thought. We didn't get a mile from the house before it started to spit and sputter at almost any rpm."

I remember this situation in an old late 1990s Chevy Van.
When the coolant level went low would do the exact same thing. Fill the level and it ran fine.


Sounds like a sensor is going.
I am not a diagnostician, just someone with a couple memory cells.

How would coolant level have anything to do with it?

Very sorry to hear about your dilemma . It sucks when you get into something like this and see no exit from it. I wish you'll find the problem

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

Sounds to me like everyone is working on a fuel system problem to fix an ignition problem.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

I posted this on the other thread. But if you want to eliminate the fuel pump as the problem, try this.


Did you try stress testing the fuel pump? I might suggest taking a long piece of gas tube, attach one end to the pump output and the other into a jar. Raise it up about head high and then use a jumper from positive side of battery to the "B" post of the pump. See if it can push fuel into that glass jar. If it cant, your problem is going to be the fuel pump.

Hate to tell you it isn't just "these days". I started working on my motorcycles and cars 40+ years ago do due the "just throw parts at it" attitude back then at shops.
