Wont Stay Running!


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just finished putting in the engine in my 1800 manta and it starts perfect but it wont stay running. the weird thing is that the car will stay running if i hold the key fully turned but if i let my hand off the key it will cut out. I have good power in the wire coming from the igntion to the coil all the time. But the power seems to drop after it goes through the coil like there is something drawing the power to keep the car running..  

Could this mean my coil is in trouble or could it be the resistor that is bolted onto the coil??


Any help would be much appreciated!
