Ignition problem

Recommended Posts

ajinid

Engine starts fine cold, but dies randomly, usually after a just  few minutes of running fine.  Doesn't matter if running idle or higher RPMs, it just wants to suddenly die.  Sometimes it will have trouble starting after its died a few times, but will usually start up after a few tries or after waiting a few minutes.  I already replaced fuel pump, ignition coil, cap & rotor, wires, plugs, and crank position sensor.  After double checking cap and rotor, I forgot to plug in the 3 wire connector underneath it (it has a red/brown/yellow wire ) and all of a sudden the engine ran great at idle for half an hour with no problems.  I plugged the 3-wire connector back in and the engine started fine, but died w/ in 1 minute.  Any ides?  (BTW 
I have Marine Power 5.7 MPI 2003 on a Tige 24V)

Have you checked the timing?  The fact that it runs ok with the distributor connector unhooked makes me wonder if the base timing is screwed up
