    First how do you know it's not getting gas, what test was performed to confirm? Have you, or anyone, checked for spark at the spark plugs??

    Actually I just started it like normal and it died. Called the shop to come get it. I just don't want to get ripped off. It's still sitting there..

    I own one just like it! The fist thing that needs to be done is check for igntion fire, if none the suspect is the distrbutor! After fuses have been tested.

    Great! Thanks! Itasca is a very small Texas town and he's the only guy here to work on it. Have to trust him unless you want to buy it.. Scratch that, it's only got 230,000 miles on it. :)
