Question type: Maintenance & Repair

4 Answers


I suspect something in the ignition. Sometimes components fail when they heat up. --- Next time it fails, squirt some starting fluid in the intake. If it fires, you know that it has spark.


Thanks for the help I will try this. Any other things it could be??


I tryed the starting fluid and it would start now what??


Has anyone gor any anserwers to my problem
