My 88 won't stay started.When I turn the key,it fires up. But will not stay running. Does anyone have the answer. Was running fine, then stalled and won't stay stated.

I would start with the ignition module and coil pack.

I would start by checking the fuel pressure and then check the spark, although you seem to have spark at startup.

Starting spark and initial fuel shot is provided through the crank sensor and ignition module until the ECM takes over

It might be the crankshaft position sensor. It produces two signals that are needed for the engine to run correctly. Maybe if one signal is missing the engine will start through the ICM but not continue to run without the other signal when the ECM takes control of timing and fuel.

Humor me. You have three Reattas. Swap a coil pack/ignition module from another one and see what happens.

Show us some pics of the turbo. I'd like to see how is sits on the engine.
