no not yet
but it was running fine then now this
i degreases the motor yesterday
but it was fine after that and i was driving it with no problems
then came home
went to start the car later to put it away and this happened

so it shouldnt be the plug
i thought maybe water or something
but i dont no
maybe bad fuel
im leaving the car running to see if its bad fuel
