Question about 1999 Chevrolet Metro
My 99 metro would act like is was running on 3cynders no power then suddenly take off and run fine the suddily is wouldnt take of stayed like it was losong power like wasnt running on all cynklers now it just spins doesnt start or sound like it wants to what coul;d it be
It is an ignition problem. First start off in this order:
1. Change the sparking plugs
2. If the problem does not go ... change the plug lead (silicon 8mm are good) and also change the one going to the ignition coil
3. You should try get the distributor points cleaned underneat the distributor cap until they look clean. Spraying Isopropyl cleaner should work fine
4. Last thing the ignition coil as these are the last thing to fail.
Hope that this was of help :)
