Hi, I have an '86 2m4 SE. Haven't had to post anything so far because I usually find the info I need, but here's an odd one that maybe someone can offer some insight.
So today I changed out the plugs, plug wires, distributor & rotor. And it started up and ran just fine, in fact I turned it off, let it sit and started it again about 3 more times. I was having an issue with the car not starting again after running for a while, which is why I did this bit of work, and it needed it. So far so good, right?
Then I put it into reverse and it stalled.
So I waited a few moments, then started it up again and we're running. Waited some more moments, put it in reverse, and it stalled. Except this time, the battery seems to be dead, as there is no electriciy flowing in the car to do anything. Maybe I blew a fuse? I will check later, my back needs to rest for a while after dealing with that distributor location.
Would the stalling indicate I need to re-time it?
