    Alright guys I have a major eff up problem here

    This morning I turned the ignition on .. after 3-4 seconds the car didn't start but did a boom from the exhaust and didn't start after that after several tries.

    I don't really know what has happened. Car had very less fuel , just over E ( may be 3-4 litres) .
    Car has Walbro fuel pump ( thats what previous owner said)

    What I;ve done so far
    - Filled more petrol ( another 5 Litres using a jerry can)
    - Changed the fuel filter
    - Tried jump start

    Sevral tries but no luck. Car behaves so rude!
    After a long self car starts for a fraction of second and dies.

    - Cleaned AFM ( haven't put it yet)

    Do I have to bleed ? my mate said it could be air. becuase I had less fuel and the car has air in the fuel line or something ?

    any idea ?

    is the fuel pump priming? can you hear that whiny noise for two or three seconds after you switch on the ignition?

    well the fuel pump was working so it was the ignitons part

    I went to mechanic to ask if he can fix and come home. he goes na bring it here.. towing will be like 150$

    he said basics are - Fuel and Spark

    you can smell petrol means Fuel is okay
    and spark he asked me to check.

    I took the spark plug out and saw it was dirty .. as in pictures below and then finaly bought Bosch Platinum plus

    Also the AFM was shifty and I had to open it and do the soldering
    now works as wonder
