    First you should never jump start anything with the Motor running ,can burn out altimeter if hiked up backwards ,sounds like a fuel problem .there is a nut looking item that can be taken off and a pressure gage put on the fuel linen. If pressure is not constant you have a fuel problem . Other could be lose or burnt wire from coil to distributor cap .
