could be the battery. I have to try and find one to swap with today. But the funny thing is... if it was the battery, why the hell would it have died while I was driving/ the car was running?

I was, and still am a little concerned about the oil problem I have. The crankcase is full... but still, I don't know. I tried pushing the car forward in 4th and 5th gear... doesn't budge. But I got to starter to turn over once too, but not long enough to get the car going - so that's a good sign. Gonna try a few things today and hopefully it's nothing too major... just the starting/igntion system somewhere.

check your grounds, they are easy to miss. if it died while driving, it might be the alt, but that is usually easy to tell, weird things start happening... whats the oil problem? no pressure on the stock gauge?

well... just did some minor troubleshooting today. My feeling is that the engine is just fucked.

I checked the starter, alternator, battery, timing belt, engine ground, sparkplugs, injectors, fuel pump (I know it's not the fuel system, but figured I'd check anyhow).

The starter will not turn at all. If I try to get the engine to crank manually (putting it in 5th, and pushing the bitch) it doesn't budge an inch. After the said pushing, the starter WILL turn, but only to a certain point then just stop, like the engine will only turn over to a certain point. This scares me the most.

My oil problem was just a lot of leaks. The oil pressure was always good, according to the stock gauge anyways. It sat right on the mark, and rose to about 40ish under acceleration like it should. The crankcase was also full when it died. But the oil pump could have crapped out or something.
I have no idea, I am not a mechanic, and don't have a lot of hands on experience dealing with shit like this.

I think Bob said he wants to come up on Sunday, and that he will check it out. Thank god for that!!
Thanks Ryan too for giving me some ideas!!!

once again, damn supras! At least I got to drive it for a month, lol!
It will be funny too if I have to swap in a "low mileage" engine that has more miles on it than my car does... good times...
