    Just keep going, it's hard at first to start it or keep it running. It gets better as you keep going. A little more info?

    Try o bring a hairdryer with you. Heating the engine block will make it easier to turn over

    That won't effect anything. A heat gun works better than a hair dryer. The main thing is to stay patience. I have a rebuilt engine in my Jato and I've been having the same problem.

    Send it to Ab mods n get some sleeve work done. And maybe a new pipe n high flow air filter. That should be a big boost. All the could be done on the side since you have an extra. Def go with heat gun not hair dryer. You need almost 200*.

    Hey man,

    mine did that until about 6th or 7th tank... it jams up. All i did was flipped truck, and manually spun the motor using the fly wheel (part 4142)...

    after a while it will wear in and the ez start will work no problems at all.

    good luck!
