[DML] Re: Starting Problem




Clean or replace the plugs...and take a nice long ride..if in fact 
Grady did a full tune-up that should be all you need.Most likely you 
just fouled the hell out of the plugs..if it still runs like crap 
most likely it is a ignition problem so just check if a wire 
somewhere is bad or loose.
