Hey everyone, I got my car running,but only with starting fluid. is there a flow of the gas switch or where is the gas hose connected to the rest of the car? is there a picture that i can see. maybe its the fuel pump. how do you tell if thats bad? thanks, cory93
This is Print Dad once again and I gotta slow you down.
Don't do anything just yet......
You were having trouble witht eh ignition switch and then I thought all that was fixed and the car started.....
Now you needed starter fluid o start. It is quite possible you fouled the plugs.
The advice given is great but ......take it one step at a time.
It would help if you could answer the following:
1. - When the car started did it continue to run or stall out in 10 seconds?
2. - Does the car have an inline clear filter?
It is possible you have a fuel blockage as others indicated but perhaps you have fouled the plugs.
If the car started and kept running itself, you may just need to clean the plugs.
It is also possible you have issues with carb, fuel pump, lines etc tec.
The best way is determine what is going on. If the car stalled out after the starter fluid burned off, I would pull the fuel line to the carb. Then insert end in to a container and have someone crank te motor and see if the gas goes to the container. Then you know there is fuel coming from the tank and getting pumped by the fuel pump.
If not...then the trouble is further back in the system assuming the car has fuel.
Sorry to jump on you...but I hate to see people throw away money.
Just be patient a little and we can diagnose this. As you see there are many great people here Print Dad
