Check your fuel pressure. Always need fuel, spark, and air to run. Check plugs, wires, ignition control module, distributor cap, rotor button, could be multiple things. Main thing is to check for spark at the plugs


Buy the code reader online for like 20 bux. Hook it up. Whatever code it tells you, google it. That easy. That damned easy.

My Boss Has A Code Reader Had To Buy A Battery Previous Owner Said The Cel Wasnt On . Ill B Checking All THis Today Ty :)
