    We have an old ford telstar, ayaw mag start ngayong maulan ano kaya yung problem?

    Here are some details:

    - carb engine, last month I cleaned the carb
    - the timing and idling have been corrected a few weeks back
    - the spark plugs were replaced around april of this year (however bec. the timing was advanced, the plugs may have fouled up or something)
    - the fuel filter was replaced around 3+ years ago (i'm thinking this may need to be changed also)
    - battery was replaced today, the old battery was 3+ years old and gave up
    - last month we had to tow the car with our other car to get it started, it took quite a while though
    - car is used only once to twice a week, travels about 100km a month only

    Ano kaya problem nito? moist lang kaya yung plugs or car? we will try and push start it tomorow. If that wont work we probably have to get a mechanic to replace the fuel filter.

    When you turn the key to start, what happened? What sounds do you hear?

    3 conditions must be met to ensure that your car would start quickly:
    1. Proper delivery of fuel
    2. Correct engine compression
    3. Precise spark timing.

    If there is no spark, trace the electric current from the spark plug to the battery until you locate the problem.

    For fuel delivery, trace the defect from the carburetor back to the fuel line.

    Proper compression depends on the mechanical condition of your engine. You would need an expert mechanic for this problem.
