Re: Breaking down
A new lead will go on with a "click", and takes some effort to get back off. Once they get along they tend not to "click" on, just push on, if you catch my drift. With fuel make sure your getting the correct pressure, or your not getting a heap of gunge or water through your system. To check the fuel pressure you'll have to go to a mechanic for the pressure gauge, but I doubt that would be the problem. To check for impurities like water and gunge in the fuel, unhook the fuel line at the engine and siphon (should just run in) a bit into a magerine container. If there's any gunge you'll see it floating in the container, or if there's water in it or some other fuel (like diesel) you'll be able to see that the fluids are separated. If you get water in the tank, most likely you'll have to siphon all the fuel out of the tank and change servo. Gunge can be a few things. Dirty fuel, yet again change servo, or if its black it could be a deteriating fuel hose. Check it for any splits/cracks or just general weathering.
Water and gunge in the fuel system will make it run pretty rough, but constant missing is more likely a spark problem, wouldn't harm to check both none the less.
