Not neccesarily timing. It might be timing because you might be firing off TDC, if that is the culprit your engine will be running rough as well.

The hard start it a symptom of the run-on. Your fuel pump turns off (so is not pushing more fuel into the line) but your engine is still pulling fuel out of the line. What's happening is your engine is sucking all the fuel out, so no, your engine isn't getting any gas.

Could also be buildup in the cylinders. Run some high quality fuel system cleaner through with a tank of high octane gas and that should help. I reccomend Seafoam myself.

In any case, your engine isn't getting enough power. Do you have the L4, V6, 305 or 350 (carb or FI)?

My daihatsus batery ceeps on running flat i charge it and 2days later its flat bouget a new batery still thasame thing kaas on going flat


If the alternator is charging correctly then you have something that is draining the battery when turned off! The usual causes are a glovebox or boot light staying on! Check these lights are not staying on!

sounds like fuel pump check valve stuck if you just cycle the key on 8 sec off 10 sec a few times it will start without spraying intake unfortunately they at times will loosen by them selves but not all the time try a fuel cleaner in the gas tank if that dont work you can live with it or replace check valve or pump

I changed fuel pump and fuel filter. My battery went dead. I took battery out and recharged. Now I'm locked out by my security, Engine won't turn/start. I think I'm locked out by security system.


Turn the car on, dont try to start it, let it set ten minutes, turn it off dont take the key out. do this three times. on the third time turn it off then try to start. this will reset the security. Make sure you have everything turned off when you do this. as the battery will drain. It is a good idea to put the charger on the battery as you do this.

I think i might have run out of gas and its below freezing


Try putting gas in, turn the ignition on, not starting. Let it sit for 1 minute. Turn the switch back off, then try to bump the engine over a couple off times. Now try to start engine ,but don't hold the switch over more than 10 sec. repeat 3-4 times. Why do you think it's out of gas?

Rear suspension problems, rusted out


so..... what is your question. if its rusted out it obviously needs replaced. You can either take it too a mechanic and let them replace it or you can to to a used parts location (ie. junk yard) get the parts pulled that you need, take them home and replace them your self. if your planning on taking it to a mechanic bc you dont want to deal with it or bc you dont know how, sometimes it is cheaper just to purchase another vehicle.
