ok..we need to know a few things,,

does it have a spark on the plug wires?

will it fire with a prime?with starting fluid or a little fuel poured into the throttle body?

how much fuel pressure does i have?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
has spark on plugs not sure about pressure and no will start but it putts putts then shuts down
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.


sense it did start with the prime,we know it isnt getting fuel.

you need to test that fuel pressure,these must have no less than 55psi at all times.

i would think the fuel pressure is low from a bad fuel pump
