Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Sounds like it could be an electrical problem with the ignition. May be a bad coil wire, or coil, spark jumping to ground. Just look for burn marks on the wire and coil, check the electrical wires running to the coil, make sure there are no rub marks wearing on the insulation.
