Fuel problems

so, I got my car running for a couple weeks after replacing/rebuilding the cv joint, but now its not staying started.

I've read/researched that, since it is starting, but dying almost immediately that its a fuel delivery problem (pressure regulater or fuel filter).

My question, anyone have any information on this?

Thanks in advance

Kajwol

it is very difficult to say with the limited information but it sounds as if you are not having ebough fuel pressure. If you are working on these type of cars you need to get the Bentley Maintenace Manual as it has a lot of troubleshooting information and ways to test for what's working and what's not.

Good Luck!

well found out it was neither of the aforementioned.

but, a vaccuum problem.

a screwdriver and a 60 sec. fix, wicked.
