Re: Fouled plugs

I put my finger over the hole and the engine died!! (I'm happy because I'm hoping I finally found the culprit to my problems).

I took off the filter and started the engine up. I immediately heard air being sucked into the engine. I left the car on for a good 20 minutes and it would stall if I put my finger over the hole.

Is there a difference b/c the Bosch or the Berh? Hopefully this 40$ part will fix all my probs. thanks a lot, guys!

Just so I understand, the thermo should open when the engine is cold, and then close when the temp reaches operating temp?
Why exactly does it die with my finger over the hole? Shouldn't this simulate the thermostat closing? So why would the engine die with the thermo closed?
