1974 Volkswagen Beetle 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 144000 miles
Hello I need someone to please help me figure this car out.
This car was running fine and now it's having a problem with spark. Sometimes it starts fine and will drive for a few minutes with no problem and the it just shuts off as if you turned off the ignition switch. If I try to start it again it wont start. If I let it sit for a while it will sart and it may stay on for a while and sometimes it will shut off afther a few minutes again. Depends on his day! I checked when it does not want to start and there is no spark comming out to the plugs. I replaced the Coil and Distributor. And still no luck. The old Distributor had Electronic Ignition and I swaped it over to the new one.
Today I started it up and it fired up right away. I hit the gas a few times and it shut off and it did not want to start again. A while back I installed a RPM guage on it and sometimes it goes crazy.
I would really appreciate your help. Thanks!
