    It sucks fuel into the intake, loading up any available cylinder with gas. Gas, in a liquid state, unfortunately, does not compress. I hate Fords /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif, I smell like gas /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif, Life is still good, even though my wife drives a Ford /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    My sob story for today.....

    Yeah, I got lucky, she didn't keep cranking and cranking after it died. Got the plugs out, and made a mell of a hess.

    Never did find the stalling problem, just have to wait and see if it does it again.
