Question about Computers & Internet
Runs good idling then when you give it gas it does not want to run
Spray some carb&choke cleaner in the intake while revving it up. if it smooths out then it is a fuel problem. if not most likely in the ignition system (spark plug, wires, or ignition coil) judging by the fact that it idles fine it sound like a coil. ( this next section risks you getting shocked but you wont be harmed, mostly just surprised and a little pain.. ouch) listen for a distinct click sound of a spark. if you can hear this follow the sound and look for the spark. you can also spray the wires with water to see if they will "leak" voltage from the insulation. you can disconnect the coil wire from the coil and hold it close to the coil where the coil wire attaches to the coil and start the engine. with it idling you should be able to pull the coil wire away about a quarter of an inch or more and see a bright blue spark. if the spark is red than the coil is weak. while doing this test hold the wire close to the coil but far enough that you can see the spark and rev the engine like you would when it would sputter. if the spark seems to stop occasionally or gets dim and red then replace the coil. if none of these things happens then reconnect the coil wire and check all cylinders with this test.
