oooo...sadness, that is a Jetronic Fuel injection help~! there are ways~ 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 :(


check the fuses~ replace the burnt relays or control unit's fuse~
