I am sorry your having this problem

when you get it to act up the engine will physically crank over and just not fire up ? or the engine will not even physically crank over when its acting up ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It will turn over and crank but after letting it run About 10 min. It will turn but not run.

ok thank you

when this happens and it will not fire up will it run on starting fluid ?

with the key ON engine OFF when it will not start is the check engine light lit up in the dash ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The engine light will only come on when it.wont crank.

will it run on starting fluid ?

is there spark when cranking it over when it will not fire up ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It cutoff after starting fluid. Can you explain to me by asking spark.
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

so it did not run with starting fluid ?

or it would run somewhat as long as you were spraying the starting fluid in ?

if it would NOT run on starting fluid when it will not start unplug an easy ignition coil you can get to then remove the coil then lay the coil on its side plug it back in and connect a test light with the test light clip to a good ground and hold the test light tip close to the inside of the coil @ 1/4 inch away from where the spark plug attaches into the coil and when cranking it over do you visually see spark jump to your test light tip ?
