My car takes a couple of tries to start and then once its up and running, it every so often will cut off on me to where ill need to restart it. But since yesterday it started cutting off on me and wouldnt start up again for a couple of hours. What could my problem be?

Next time it refuses to start do below-

Get a carb cleaner and spray into the carb or the throttle body on an EFI. Did it start and die? If not disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light.

Fuel pump/Pressure Regulator/Filter and Injector/s checks out-start checking the ignition system-power to coil, coil/s itself, distributor pick-up, control module, Cam and Crankshaft sensors.

If both fuel and spark is present-check the valve and ignition timing, this will lead you to problems with compression and valves opening and closing at the wrong time

I have a question. How do you go about getting a title to sell a car that is abondoned on your property? My parents bought some land and there is a 1970 thunderbird abondoned out there. They want it off of their land and I would like to sell it maybe recycle it for a few bucks. If you have any knowledge in this please help me out I could use the money to fix up my car. Hopelessly stuck :(
