Re: Atomic 4 dies under load
It's been a VERY Long time since I had an A 4 , but I think we can rule out oil. I would pull the coil wire and check that you're getting good spark. Could be a coil or condenser, I do seem to recall buying coil wires for my A 4 that were even bad right out of the box. Check rotor, cap and points, Sometimes there are hairline cracks that are barely visible in the cap and rotor. Then check all the ignition wires, plugs, and Ignition timing. That's all I've got, hopefully, a better mechanic than me will chime in.
Oh, and keep us posted on your progress!
