Question about 1989 Dodge Omni
So I changed the oil pump in my 1989 Dodge Omni, and now when you start it, it sputters and eventually just cuts out. I asked someone I know and they said it sounded like one of the cylinders wasn't firing. Any ideas as to what is wrong here?
A sparkplug wire may have been loosesed or disconnected or damaged.
If you can't find it then wait until late evening when it's dark.
Open hood and start the car. You will see the sparks from the damaged/loose sparkplug cable. Don't touch it while ignition is ON. It will shock you!
If you "disconnected" any sparkplug wires when you replaced the oil pump, then they were not put back in the proper firing order.
Hope this helps!
