stalling issue

hey guys, i have an 87 gt. finally got her started up this morning after she sat for about 8 months. car started right up and ran like a charm for maybe 5 3 minutes and then stalled and refused to start. i waited an hour, went back out and tried it again. she started right up, ran fine for 3 minutes started to misfire and then stalled again. i haven't had a chance to tear into it yet, but was wondering if you guys had any ideas off the top of your head? i'm thinking fuel filter or something along those lines. thanks

Probably the old fuel stopping up your filter. New filter and some kind of fuel injector cleaner mey help you out. You may already have it fixed by now. Good luck.

well as you already know it takes 3 things to start and run your car fuel air and spark... if its getting air (most likely) and spark sounds pretty good.. id put a fuel pressure gauge on your shrader valve.. see what it does.. but i dont see a fuel filter being the issue.. it can be but dont believe if it was at an idle.. at least not if it started... I would think... but can be cheap fix regardless... did you hit the throttle at all....?? does it have that same fuel that has been in there for 8 months....??

i would go with some stabalizer and put in half a tank of gas and run it down to use up that old gas. Then refill with some new, and see how she runs.

scharder valve?? is that the threaded fitting on the front of the fuel rail on your left side when looking at the engine?? are you able to just screw a valve on and your set or do you have to do more to get it to read the pressure?

sorry to steal the thread
