  4. starting problem '95 2.8 Cabrio

    1st off tow-starting not recomended...2 reasons 1, if any slack in timming belt, the suddern 'jerk' can jump a tooth and..disaster. 2, you can put too much un burnt fuel and it will kill you cat...you won't know until you go for an emissions test. Does the car turn over ok? Have you had the battery drop tested? and the alternator charge rate tested?
