94 D90 stalling when load put on the engine

I washed my D90 and when I started her back up and went to drive away she died. I was able to drive home but had to keep the RPM at 2000. After she sat for 6 hours I checked (from reading the other post) and my ignition cable is moved to the ds wheel well and the white ignition cable that is behined the engine is dry. I also pulled off the distrbitor cap and everything appears dry. She will start but any time I put any load on her (in gear or turn the a/c on) she dies! any ideas?
if not, does anyone know a good mechanic in the Homestead FL area? Thanks for the help!

Brent, spray some wire-dry or wd-40 on the coil and other electrical components even if they appear dry. If this just started after washing it, I'll bet that's all it is.

It's a little cylinder roughly the size of a can of shaving cream, located on the driver side wheel well. It has a wire running from it to the center of the distributor cap.

Spray any thing that remotely looks like it's electrical - you can't hurt it with wd40

Unhappy

Well, I thought the Wd-40 helped -- it would run fine for about ten minutes then when I'd push the clutch in the rpm would drop to idle then stall. After getting it restarted it would do that a few more times then run fine. Today I walk out to drive it and it wont start! Help! has anybody been to a good mechanic in the homestead/ miami area?

Hello Brent,
Had similar issues with my '95. Turned out it was the new LR rotor. Replaced with non genuine rotor and has been fine.
Should be 7-10 dollars.

Good Luck

Joe

Sounds good Joe,
What brand of rotor did you use that worked well?
Thanks for the help!

Thaks for all the help- turns out it was a fuel pump / relay - $800 at the dealer. She runs great now though!
