Ok, heres the deal. 2 nights ago I finally got my 1987 Dodge Diplomat to run. And run it did, it had a very nice idle and ran very well. Today I wanted to put the exhaust Y-pipe back on. So I attempt to start it. It wouldnt. I pour a tiny bit of gas down the carb and it roars back to life, then quits. So I do this about 10 times and gas still isnt getting to the carb. I find out my fuel pump went bad ( it was acting up anyways, quitting and then working and then stopping) So I replaced it. I go to start my car and it did, but ran like total sh*t, as if some cylinders were not firing(?). It did keep running so I decided while it was I'd move it to the garage. Well, it stalled and wont start for nothing anymore.
It just kinda chugs for a few seconds and then stops. If you pump the gas rapidly it almost starts but no. I thought it had a vaccum leak so I also replaced the carb base gasket which didnt do jack, it also has brand new intake gaskets, so I think they're ok. As far as I can tell all the holes in the carb either have something on them or are plugged. The ignition was acting kind of wierd also, but then it went back to normal. Please help, I'm so frustrated at this thing I'm 2 steps away from junking it.
