Engine Performance problem
1969 Volkswagen Beetle 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual? Miles
My wife and I recently bought a vintage VW Beetle, after a little work it ran just fine for about three months. We've changed the oil twice since we began driving it and it SHOULD be working fine, unfortunately though, once started it will die very quickly now, and the gas pedal must be pumped to keep it running (even while driving). It has electrical issues galore, and I am fairly sure we need to flush the gas lines. It also backfires on a regular basis, but when we check the plugs, they look fine.
If anyone could give me a little advice on where to start, that would be great. Thanks in advance!
