Sound like everything is going on to make this run, but a crankshaft sensor would be holding it back. And what was the code? It always helps to know.


The code was Po 108 map sensor I don't think that would make it not run I did ck the wiring to sensor that's good I pulled vacuum on sensor and voltate changes.If crankshaft sensor was bad wouldn't I not get spark
