This sounds like a fuel filter. As the car sits a little fuel leaks through the filter and fills the gas line allowing the motor to run for a minute or so-but not under load. Should also check fuel pump as it may be weak as well. Hope this helps.

Bro,
This is a model which should get a good attention on all of its parts. You should have a detailed idea on your car's parts, its condition, workability,etc.
So firstly try to figure out any kind of leakages from crank parts, gear/clutch assembly. This is easy to find when the car is parked for long time.
Then look out for any broken pipes, tubes, seals, cracks.
Any oil leakage into combustion chamber, plugs, etc.
Check plugs by touching the car body while cranking!!
Then check the distributor cables and the distributor.
I think this all about your Power lines, fuel pumps.
So please try and rate it!!!

It started, when i put it in reverse it died. now it will not start.it turns over and acts like it wants to start but wont. there is gas in it.


Engage the "clear flood mode" by holding the gas pedal to the floor while cranking. This cuts down on fuel delivery to clear a flooded engine. As the engine starts and runs, let up on the gas.

Did you check for good compression? You may have either jumped timing or have a broken timing belt. I would check engine compression first. If it's good then move on to checking your fuel and ignition systems.
