I'm talking REALLY random...this is the 3rd time this has happened this year.



Driving along, minding my own business when she will stall at a traffic-light or stop sign for no apparent reason. Repeated cranking won't start her, but twisting the throttle makes the cranking speed increase slightly...(because of less restriction?)

After a few minutes of this, I eventually dig out the tool kit and pull the spark plug...looks fine, looks normal.

Exchange for "spare" spark plug in tool kit...starts!



When I get home, I replace the "spare" spark plug for the original...she starts and runs for another 6 - 8 months without a hiccup.



Suggestions?

Ever try and remove the gas cap? Possibly the vent is clogged and you're getting a vacuum in the tank and not letting gas flow. You would hear a hissing when you remove the cap from air rushing into the tank. Removing and replacing the cap immediately solves the problem, for a while anyway.
