    2.0 Liter Gas
    Hi. Here is the story. Last year I replaced a bad water pump. Pulled the front cover. Not looking into timing position, I found the cam marks and put on tdc. I didnt know the crank mark was on the ribbed pulley which was removed so I put my own marks on the crank sprocket and block. I removed...

    no never had a problem stalling out. had a problem with the coil loosing spark to 2 cylinders. that seems corrected. this may be another issue. not sure. when it starts its firing on all four. havent been able to check spark situation when it isnt starting. I used to like this car...not so sure now.

    here we go again...another issue. now the car has a intermitent no start. it cranks over but wont fire. seems like no spark. every once in a while it pops like it hit on one cylinder then nothing. after numerous attempts sometimes it just fires right up. you shut it off and it starts right back...
