oooo...sadness, that is a Jetronic Fuel injection system~...seek help~!....no there are ways~ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jetronic I'm just saying that a compression check of that ole motor...might be a start... there is a thermo-time switch...check that to see if it works okay...we will leave it there~

I was told it was the fuel injection power supply relay and the idle control unit. I am so confused :(
