1992 5.3 Marelli - Stall after warming up and odor

Steve, you had me scratching my head there for a minute over the ABS ball before I realized this picture wasn’t taken of your 95 6 liter convertible----

I’ve decided to do a compression test before I do more troubleshooting. Should be in good shape but I want to validate for overall reliability purposes. I’m also going to overhaul the fuel injectors. Not related to problems but as the car has stood too much I want to have full confidence in it’s reliability. I’ll be working on validating vac, sensors etc in the meantime after the compression test.

Correct, mine is blue.
I was not at my desktop with all the digital photographs and found the picture in question online. The annotations are mine.

However, having a 6.0L with ABS Teves III is not unusual. The VIN breakpoint for the Teves IV was something in the 198xxx’s. This would be circa October-November 1994 production date.

My car is a few hundred numbers before the VIN breakpoint. I’ve seen more 1995 convertibles with a set-up similar to mine than to yours (IIRC, your VIN is a few hundred numbers after the breakpoint and Jaguar did not make many v12s afterwards).

I don’t remember where are you in Alabama but hope the recent weather events did not impact you.

Southeast corner and we were fine. Thanks for asking.

Yes, my Vin is 1998xx.

Love your picture annotations. You and Paul do a good job with explanations and photos, as do some others. The pictures often beat the heck out of the drawings in the ROM. Together they are really helpful.

I’ll open a new thread on possible dropped valve seat. Leaking intake gasket at B6.

Leaking intake should account for misfire and loss of fuel pressure on revving. Hopefully I don’t have a serious issue in the head. Just waiting on scope to arrive. I’ll take off rails and gubbins from vee tomorrow and look at all cylinders incl. a compression test. I have changed the Flywheel sensor.
