normal operating range?

My '92 Loyale (SPFI) starts up cold (at these winter temp's, mind you) at about 75-80 psi. Once it warms up, it'll idle at about 10-15 psi. Warmed up, down the highway, it settles about 40 psi.

Keep in mind these are guesstimates off the analog gauge, and from my memory, which sucks.

I'm running 10w40, btw... so far, the battery & the starter haven't had a problem with it, so I'm happy.

your pressure seems normal within acceptable limits. stalling at idle and won't restart?

there are a few things..

fuel filter, cap, rotor, normal tune up stuff.

But I had a similar issue with my 87 turbowagon.. it turned out to be the ignition module in the disty.. swapped the dist out for another one and the problem went away.

As for your engine noise.. cant tell ya much without hearing it.. soobs make some weird noises sometimes.
