What liter engine?

Can you lost all repairs in the past 70k?

Currently the symptoms point to water in the fuel, fuel filter restricted, or worn out ignition components.

I like to stay in contact with my customers. I assume you were not pleased with me or my answer since you did not rate it leaving me feedback. Just so you know we can still work on this issue. We can pick up where we left off or start over. I hate you paid all that money for your question deposit and have left not satisfied. Would any diagrams or repair guides or a phone call help?.

Thanks Chris
