Just got it out of winter storage, drove it down the road a couple miles to get it inspected, and on the way back it started running rough, like a dead bog when I'd press down the throttle. The gas gauge was on E so I figured maybe that was it.

I let the car idle and put a couple gallons of gas in. The idle was really rough but didn't get better, and eventually stalled after a couple minutes. It kind of sounds like it wants to start when I first start cranking but it won't light off. I gave it a small shot of ether in the throttle body but nothing. Pulled a plug thinking it flooded but the plug was completely dry and looked good.

One thing that seemed real peculiar when I started it up after storage was it would set at a really low rpm for a second or two, like it wanted to stall, then take off.

Thoughts?
