Hello , my name isXXXXX you for choosing justanswer.com.

What is missing? Spark or fuel?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

Before I changed the spark plugs I checked the carburetor and saw fuel going in when my friend tryed to start it up. After when I changed the spark plugs, ignition module, and distributor cap, the engine turns slow and gas shoots out of carburetor (alittle gas)

Ford Mechanic: JHoop, Ford Technician replied 8 years ago
So have you checked to see if you have spark?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
No i didnt check to see if any spark
Ford Mechanic: JHoop, Ford Technician replied 8 years ago
That is the next step.

Check for spark and let me know.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
