the story starts mum was leaving the local Mall and she couldn't start he car that's alright dad went to jump start it started running he reverses it out of the car spot puts in drive and turns lights on cough burp f@rt etc etc stalled got it started (turn key no jump) tried lights again stalled a few pops out the air intake manifold and then he says f**k it to lights gets me to follow and starts again and puts it in gear (D) and stalls pops caoughs f@rt etc etc so sprayed so WD40 type spray around the plugs dizzy and coils etc tried agin no go same s**t. so we pushed the car near the servo next to the mall locks it up and goes home

next day dad trys to drive it to my sisters place (mum and dad live out of town) same thing doesn't want to run proper coughs f@rt etc etc so a tow truck took out to my dads and it sits there at the moement..

the envrioment was pissing down rain it cold and wet i think the inhibiotor switch in the auto is rooted but that is me i think there is a lot of things it could be


1) f**k plugs
2) stuffed leads
3) inhibitor switch

that is all what me and dad could think of any help would be good cheers

Check plugs, leads and dissy cap. Dont worry about the inhibitor switch that just stops the car from starting if its not in neutral or park. How much fuels in the tank may have picked up some crap and clogged the filter.

Usually is the simple stuff that gets overlooked thats causing the problem.
Just try to remember the KISS theory Keep It Simple Stupid. Everytime I forget it and overlook the simple things it always come back to it.
