out after that and acted like it wasn't getting enough power and if i didn't hold
the gas to the floor it wouldn't stay running once it died it wouldn't not start
back up i put a new starter in it and new  cap and roder on new coil and
ignition mod on it still nothing but when it has starter fluid in it then it start but
immediately dies out then just cranks i have a full tank of gas and good

1 Answer


is the injector firing ? does the fuel pressure drop after the system is primed when you hit the key /engine off ? Got a good spark , wires ? what do the plugs look like . Sounds like a fuel problem if starting fluid makes it fire up .
