hey guys

im having trouble with my eb wagon sometimes when i start it the car runs really rough and stalls especially when its facing up hill but after i drive it for a bit its ok

it is worse when its facing up hill

and the other thing its been doing the last couple of days is when i start to crank it in the morning it cranks slow like a flat battery and the more it cranks the faster it gets very strange like opposite to a flat battery

any help would be good as i have to go to wagga wagga in a few weeks for uni and dont want it to die anywhere

Check the fuel filter, sounds like it might be full of crap and need replacing. Go over basics, plugs/leads/dizzy cap, vac leaks. All the usual stuff for a service.

If it stuffs up heading uphill, one would suspect a fuel issue. Maybe the intank pump? Or filter? What about when putting your foot down? A stuffed lead may seem to be fine under normal loads but cause a jump in spark to the motor when accelerating harder. Is there any moisture getting into the electrics, dizzy etc?

cranking slow then fast could either be the Battery or the Starter motor itself try it with another battery and see if its the same if it is chances are its the starter motor
