When I first start it up (cold), the rpm jumps up and down from 500 to 1000 and then I put my foot on the gas and it dies. After a couple start ups i was able to drive it down the driveway but im too nervous to actually take it out cause I don’t wanna be stranded. Anybody know whats causing this?
I am sure your local independant mechanic will find he problem in no time.Why don’t you pay him a visit?
Well ideally I’d like to do it myself, but yes, if I have to I will take it to a shop
