When I crank car, it starts sputtering during idling, then sputters as I drive it. It only does this occasionally. Other times, it will crank right up with zero sputtering/skipping. I had the points changed out/replaced and it stopped for a while, but it's doing it again. Could it be condensation, or is it a choke/float type problem. I only use 93 Octane gas in it. In addition, it also has a gas odor inside the car.
Thanks! Danny suberdan@bellsouth. Net
