Number 3: Be more precise with your wording and someone may help you. Try some diagnostics. The car is trying to talk to you. Listen to it and then post on here in such a way that we can understand it.

Good luck on your project!


I second this. Your fuel distributor (and lines) and everything else are probably coated with gas varnish and other nastyness. A full cleaning of everything (and possibly replacement) is in order to get it running properly.
