I currently have this car to where it will start - But only when it is at high idle. As soon as the vehicle drops down to normal idle or it is given any gas it shuts off. I also had the vehicle fire back up through the throttle body when I tried to apply gas when the vehicle was being started. The vehicle has been basically sitting here in my parents home for about 3 years now. Last time I was home I changed out the entire ignition system and it worked fine. When I got home this time it worked fine for the first day.
I tried starting the car up the second day I was home and it wouldnt due to the problem mentioned above. So I thought possibly a fuel problem so I changed out the fuel filter to make sure it wasnt being blocked. It also seems that the only way to get the car to start is to just barely crank the starter a couple times and then actually try to start it. The two options I was wondering about is possibly a bad fuel pump or maybe bad fuel?
Let me know what you think. Thanks alot
