Starts right back up and same thing over and over. Any ideas?
I have exact this problem. I end up to replace the exhaust manifolds.
Next time you go out, see if happens again. If run for 1/2 hour good and after that missing I would look in to the manifolds. After get hot everything expend and that's when water can get in the engine. Maybe only the gaskets are bad....
Let us know what you find. Everybody have a good suggestion here.
If they respect you, respect them. If they disrespect you, still respect them. Do not allow the action of others to decrease your good manner, because you represent yourself not others.
