You unplug the coil wire and then it starts? Or just hold it up to keep it from touching other components?

Fuel mixture too rich, either need a carb adjustment or overhaul.

Sorry I misread your year, have you had the codes pulled? There could be some in memory that will help with diagnosis, it still sounds like a rich fuel condition, will it blow any black smoke out of the tailpipe just after initial start up?

20

There was a code of miss fuse 1 -3- 4 so that why I tune it up now there no code In there sense I tune it up but it still doing the same

20

But if it run to rich or mix what should I do to fix the problem
