It was starting then if turned off it would not start again.I f we waited like an hour or so it would start back. We changed the spark plugs and that didnt help. Now it wont start at all. It acts like it wants to but just wont. Please help this is our only vehicle and money is tight and would like to fix this ourselves if we can. Any help would greatly be appreciated

When it doesn't start, are you getting spark and fuel to the engine? Have you tried replacing the EEC relay?

Yes it gets spark. It sounds like it wants to start but doesnt. We dont try to many times to start it because we dont want to flood it. We bought a fuel filter but have not put it on yet. Thanks so very much for trying to help us.

It sounds like you're not getting fuel. Have you tried to start it with starting fluid?
