Some time ago I posted the “6 step” process to help you figure out what is wrong with your engine. It is actually a tune up process as well but very handy as a trouble shooting solution.
It all starts here, Trouble Shooting – Engine. Click on the circles or just click next to step through each one. It all starts with the sparkplugs. These instructions are useful to any wheeled World War Two vehicle, like the jeep, 1/2-ton Dodge, etc.
