[DML] Re: Engine stumbling

It could be fuel - but I suspect electrical - possibly at the voltage 
resistor mounted on the firewall. Check and move all the connections 
on the resistor to be sure of a clean connection. It would not hurt 
to check the connections on the coil too. Clean the connections on 
fuse 1 and 7. Then check the ground to the ignition ECU - behind the 
driver seat.

for a traffic light after driving for maybe 3 minutes, and the engine 
suddenly started to stumble as if I was out of gas. (Gauge shows half 
full, and that's probably correct.) It nearly died, then began to 
crawl forward just enough to get me out of the intersection, out of 
the way. Then suddenly it went away, and I shot off like a slingshot. 
Background: the plugs, wires, distributor and vac lines are less than 
a year old and professionally installed. The fuel pump is too. The 
other fuel tank innards and hoses were all replaced about 6 years 
ago. Warm up regulator and thermotime switch also about a year old, 
as is the... I forget the name... fuel relay? in the electrical 
compartment. I have a blown head gasket I haven't repaired yet, but 
could that be the issue? In my driveway 5 minutes later it started to 
stumble a bit again, and oil pressure showed about 40 instead of 80, 
unless I revved it. At least it would rev. I spent thousands on tune 
up related issues last spring at my usual D vendor, and the car was 
fine. Now what?
