Customer reply replied 7 months ago

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
i will take it somewhere and have it fixed and never use this site again
Technician: Engine Tech, Engine Technician replied 7 months ago

I am sorry there are delays in posts from me to you. So when you send multiple ones they get delayed to me. I believe you have a weak spark condition causing the issue.
