That is going to happen when your your car Is running and you try to take out the glow plug. Your piston is no getting any compresson so there for it will stall. You should know that.

You're talking about the ignitor, not the actual glo plug, right?..

I believe you're right there, Fastharry. With that said, neres818....once you get it started, leave the glowplug ignitor on your vehicle and either hold your car in place while you give it a little throttle or pick it it up and give it jab or two of acceleration from the radio. This will help clear out some of the excess fuel that sometimes builds up when starting engines. After that take the glowplug ignitor off and see if runs or still shuts down. If it shuts. If its still shuts down turn youy high speed needle a 1/8 of a turn clockwise to lean it out a bit. Also check to make sure you don't have a leak in gas/exhaust lines and fuel tank.

BTW...is this a new car/engine?

So...you're saying even with the glowplug ignitor still on the car, it shuts down when you give it gas on the throttle?

I would start with a new plug. Then once it starts, I would adj. the IDLE SCREW to keep it going and then tune from there. Sounds like the idle is out of adj or it is to rich on the top.

Ok, if you are still having problems, reset the carb settings to factory. Put in a new glow plug. Make sure the Glow igniter is fully charged. Set the idle screw so it is barely open, about 1mm.

Start the engine. Leave the igniter attached to the glow plug. give the trottle some burbs. If it dies restart it. Lean out high speed needle a little and try again. Once the engine is at running temp take off igniter and it should run fine. adjust needles as needed.

One other place to look is the clutch. Clean it up. It may be worn out and/or engaging way to early causing the engine to die.

Get an OS #8 plug and invest in a set of Mechanix gloves. For $25 you get a good set of gloves will make the pullstart bearable not to mention come in handy during marshalling.
