how many miles are on this buggy? which motor does it have?

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

the three essential components being fuel, air, and timed spark and hopefully valves as well. Even if you've got a mechancial distributor there is a crank angle and/or cam sensor(s). Either might be sending an erratic signal to the ECU.

It's got 190,000 miles dosent really have a smell just white smoke

Changed all the filters except fuel filter so far was headed that way next its v6 twin cam

whoooa hooray! test output from the crank angle sensor/cam sensor...sounds like someone ain't talkin' to the ECU properly-

I had the same problem, if you can have your codes read all the better. When my car started driving like yours I replaced the camshaft sensor and then the MAF sensor. You can buy both online, look on ebay for best deals :)
