USED CAR CAN’T GO FAR


It’s either not getting fuel or spark, or neither.

If it’s a TBI have a friend crank it while you look in the throttle.

If the injectors are squirting you will see it.

You can test for spark with a low cost spark tester available at any good parts/tools outlet.

There are cruder ways to test for spark however you will want one for future repairs/evaluations.


Happy Racing!

If People Drove Any Slower They’d Be Going Backwards

Fog lights are not driving lights. They look dorky. Turn em off slow pokes.

How bout those dorks too scared to drive without headlights on in the daytime!

Air, Fuel, or Spark. Almost always have air

bring a can of starting fluid with you and try cranking it after you spray a few shots; if it starts you know its a fuel problem. still no start - probably electrical. break it down to the basics and go from there.
