No able to get her stated
Problem...when starting her, she just won't catch.. I give a few taps of the pedal but she isn't going to give in. I pump the gas and she almost starts but won't . It is getting enough gas. I'm not wure, but is the carb not getting enough gas?
Clogged fuel injectors, maybe?? A bad spark plug or two could also be an issue.
Thanks, my car doesn't have fuel injection but I will check the plug. Thinking also it could be the carb. You are very helpful. Thanks again..
Opps...didn't notice the year of your car (1985) and somehow overlooked your mention of carbs...More than likely you're right. I happened to notice this, for what it's worth...good luck fixing the problem! http://www.ehow.com/facts_7674072_common-carburetor-problems.html
When was it last tuned up? One or even two spark plugs not firing would still allow it to run. Sounds like the rotor has burnt through and is allowing the coil spark to ground through it.
