Hi, my name is***** you tell me the history of this problem? Has this car been sitting unused for a long time?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
this car i did not use for couple of month
Expert:  Marty replied 9 months ago.

Okay, if it ran fine 2 months ago I would suspect that the plunger in the fuel distributor is stuck. If the plunger is stuck you will get way too much fuel into the engine. The fuel distributor will need to be removed to check the plunger. A compression test should be performed to make sure that the engine is okay. Cleaning or replacing the spark plugs may help but if it's getting too much fuel the spark plugs will foul out.
