OK you kinda lost me in your description...

So youre basicly saying the car has like no power? Did this start happening the moment after you did the burnout?

As always, check the basics first. Spark plugs, plug wires, cap and rotor, vacuum hoses, do a compression and cylinder leakdown test to make sure your internals are ok...

Found out the problem the guy who had the car before me thought u didnt need a fuel filter so where the hoses usually meet the filter were just connected together running straight fuel to the engine clogging the injectors and hoses..

glad u found out the problem. next time check your punctuation & run-ons... i know that makes my car run like total dog crap

































actually lack of punctuation & run-ons really just makes me sound dumb & unintelligible... and from the looks of it, it seems to do the same to other people, too :idea2
