Question type: Maintenance & Repair

starts after a lot of turning

1 Answer

My dad had an issue with his, he had a bad ground. His would randomly shut off while drying down the road. I think it was the wire between the block and the body. It was all corroded when he unbolted it. I think he tested it by using jumper cables between the block and body. Good luck.
