Default Re: Engine quit running

sounds like a scared cylinder/piston maybe? loss of compression can lead to loss of power. it could be any of a million things. The new cap was prob a good idea, the stock one is horrible, hard plastic. if he didnt install it correctly that could be why. get a new wire+boot from SBP, its like 6 bucks. when you install it make sure the screw goes into the conductor and not the insulation surrounding it

if you think the wire/cap setup you have now works, try testing it for connectivity with a volt meter
