G'day

as the title says I cant get me car going after I degreased it :evil: .

it's cranking over but just will not fire,I gave it a shot with the air compressor but still no luck.

The battery is starting to get low so I'm coinsidering leaving it overnight but because of the cold weather I'm not sure it will help really.

anyone have any suggestions?

And I'm also wondering if I have filled the muffler/cat with fuel :roll: ,I hope when/if the mongrel dose fire if were going to have a problem :evil:

Had that happen heaps in various cars. Just make sure leads plugs and especialy the dizzy cap insides are dry. even the smallest minute amount of water in a dizzy cap (even just damp inside) will cause a car to run like a dog. almost like the timing is out 180 degrees. if all else fails a short drive should bring it good. But dont worry im sure nothing is f**k.
