try putting seafoam directly into the air intake, your carb/ injectors might be clogged. stuff if amazing

Thank you i will try that. Just odd i can crank it up and it will idle fine for about 2 mins then dies down ad shuts off. If i rev it up it will also bogg down. I replaced the air filter and fuel filter and it didnt help. I can also hear the pump buzz before igniting


Your problem, I believe, isn't going to be corrected by some magic spray. You could have a faulty ignition coil, mass airflow sensor, even a failing fuel pump. Your car has an ignition or fuel pump problem. You're either not getting proper fuel or spark. Really could be either. The car should be giving you codes that tell you what part of the car is defective. You just have to get the car to a car parts store or to a dealer for the codes to be read.

Thank you for your reply my friend let me borrow his obd2 reader so ill check when i get home. Could it possibly be a idle air control valve ?


If you get the car running and the idle is erratic, then yes.

PROBLEM SOLVED mass air flow sensor ... Unplugged it and it ran great .. Plugged back in and it choked down and died
