yes, corrosion, weak connection, anything can cause this. Clean the posts and any ground connection you can get to. Make sure the connections are snug and not going anywhere.

Thanks so much for your responses - seems to be working -so fsr so good- removed and cleaned cables and found ground to block loose-removed and cleaned connector and put on good and snug Thanks againAndreww and Karl

What exactly was it doing? I think no e has the same problem. I thought it was a fuel problem buy I replaced the entire fuel system nearly and it's still hit or miss with cranking. New plugs new wires new coils. What could it be?
