Answer
Hello, sorry about the delay in getting back to you been kind of busy lately,.
Are you able to keep the engine running at higher rpms when this happens, can you increase rpm and keep it going or does it die anyway?
You should also inspect the wiring from the coil /igniter and distributor and the ECM connectors.
