I just bought a 2002 bird with 10000 km on it, guy did part of the way, 300 kms with it, was running fine, after, didn't take it for spin yet, started it this morning, running on 2 cylinders, have plenty of fuel, foul around a little bit, than ran on two, now just one cylinder is firing, touching the exhaust pipe with my finger,I checked fuel pump, fuel getting to the fuel rail, disconnect return line, and turn the key, plenty of fuel. I was suspecting the fuel because of surface rust in the tank.
I just sold a 1998 carb one to buy this one, so far I regret my move. I think this will be my last bird, getting angry wit it. I will go look at the spark plug tomorrow to see if they are wet. sugestion would be welcome
