    Time to do a full, fuel system clean out. Also, check your compression, and let us know what you get.

    PM or post for help. Don't leave questions in my profile box. (i never check it)

    I'm not going to be able to do vinyl or carbs for a while. Starting my new job is taking a lot of time

    Nope... there is no miracle in a bottle. You got to take it apart, and fix it right.
