Engine Performance problem
1973 Plymouth Duster V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 73,000 miles

IF THE CAR SITS MORE THAN 3 DAYS, IT HAS A PROBLEM STARTING. IS IT MAYBE A FUEL PROBLEM WHERE IT MAYBE BACKS OUT TOWARD THE FUEL PUMP & MAYBE BEYOND?

Do you
have the same problem?

If the car doesn't turn over then you have a battery draw making the battery go down. If it doesn't start then take the air cleaner off and push the throttle down and see if you can see fuel squirting in the carb. If not then it's probably time for a rebuild on the carb. This is assuming your ignition is ok.
