Hello all,

Every time a post a problem with my 80 vw rabbit pickup you always come 
through! Here's another one- Driving down the road only half mile from the 
house and then total loss of power with some smoke (?), maybe a bang (?). 
Pulled over and the oil cap was off, laying on top of the engine. Replaced 
oil cap, checked oil and tried to start engine fires and runs for about 3-4 
seconds then dies. It will continue to fire and run for 3-4 seconds but I 
don't want to destroy it so haven't touched it since. Not very fun. Any help 
would be greatly appreciated.
