Vapor Lock
I have had some problems with my '86 SEi shutting down only in the hot weather. I just replaced the fuel pump because I thought that would solve it, but unfortunately it hasn't. I now am pretty sure it's a vapor lock, due to the close proximity of the pump and exhaust? And it starts and runs again after I cool it down with a little water from a drinking bottle. IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO SOLVE THIS VAPOR LOCK PROBLEM, I would certainly appreciate your experience with same! Hey... it's Summer!!
Thanks, Kim.
