97 SC2 starts then dies

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Matthew Fries, Nov 15, 2005.

  1. About a week after I brought my 97 SC2 into the dealer for the 84K
    maintenance, I start to notice this:

    When starting, the starter cranks normally, and the engine fires, but
    then the engine dies when the RPMs should fall to idle.

    It happens only after the engine has been running for at least 15
    minutes, and I stop the engine just for a few minutes.

    If I restart the engine, it runs fine, and does not die a second time.

    Might this be a fuel pump or a fuel filter issue? I found it strange
    that it started happening shortly after the maintenance (just bad luck
    I hope).
