My car was running perfect, I was at a stop light then when it turned green I stepped on the gas and there was a poof sound and it seemed to be running on 1 cylinder (uphill of course) i got it on a side street and shut it down. Now it won't start at all.
Any ideas what it could be??
Help!
Thanks!

Well... I gave it a lot of gas and it started again, but chugging really hard!

Did you loose spark or fuel? The first place to start when diagnosing a no start issue.

Good to hear it’s running again :drinks:
I’ll probably get some heat for this, but I always keep my chokes wired open, just so will never
