    If you do a search there is a lot of info on how to construct the light box and how to use it. It will tell you what gear the shift computer, aka governor, is commanding the transmission what gear to...

    There are 2 possible sources. One is something loose in the suspension allowing it to move creating the pulsation. The other source is a problem with the rotors. Maybe the surfaces are not parallel...

    If you think there is a problem with fluid or pressure the best way to tell is with a line pressure gauge. I agree with the previous poster that it sounds more like an engine problem than a...

    Typically the problem is not the fuel pressure, it is the injectors and vacuum leaks. Fuel pressure problems generally cause problems at high RPM's or under load. Have your injectors cleaned, very...

    Concours (sp) is not just about the cars being judged. It sets the standard for ALL cars of that marque to be judged by and helps to set values. Any serious Marque will have concours judging. The...

    MAPP doesn't get it hot enough. Oxy-Acetalyne is the way to go. Keep a wet rag and a spray bottle filled with water handy and do it in a well ventilated area with a fan because you will burn the...

    With all of the recent storms you must be cautious buying a car, it could have been flooded.

    Make sure you put the reservoir on correctly. If you put it back on the wrong way it hits the booster and will leak. Make sure the reservoir is fully seated into the seals. If it still leaks you...

    Buying from a dealer is much more convenient than buying from a private party BUT, you will pay more, have a much better idea of what you are buying, the car will be safe and drivable, and they can...

    If the plunger can move freely without sticking LEAVE IT ALONE! Assuming the car ran OK before your problems my guess is a vacuum leak (or leaks). You tried to "fix" it by adjusting the mixture and...

    One of the top reasons a belt will fail is if the pulleys are not lined up, ie, in the same plane. Use a string or straightedge and make sure the alternator is lined up. Other reasons for a belt to...

    The last time I saw those toolkits for sale was at the warehouse sale in Ohio. They are garbage but they were supposed to be included with the cars but never were. you can't actually use the tools,...

    If the muffler is glowing the fuel plunger is probably stuck. You have to take the fuel distributer off the mixture unit and unstick the fuel plunger.

    You make a lot of references between cars and aircraft. While they do have things in common, there are too many differences to compare them directly. For example cars get to coast most of the time...

    Reread my post, the very first sentence. It directly answers the OP's question. I went on and told the OP what he should be replacing. Doesn't matter if he does it himself or has someone do it, those...

    Even though those parts have been in the car for a long time, if you don't have much mileage on them I say they can probably go to 10 years. As far as P/M, check the date codes on the tires. If over...

    It's also louder without a cat and harder to tune. The stock motor was designed to work with it. The cat probably failed because at some point in the past the motor was running WAY too rich.

    It is also possible this was done at one of the QAC's. There was a lot of parts swapping done to get cars shipped by VIN and there were shortages of parts so some cars got cannibalized and later...

    It also makes it hard to start especially when hot with all of that advance timing. Best advice is to try to get all of the OEM systems going correctly. By not hooking it up (correctly) you don't get...

    To check and, if necessary, adjust the valves, you just have to get the valve covers off. You slowly pour the STP or MMO in the intake while the motor is running. You can do a leak-down check on only...

    If it is not using oil and there are no combustion gases in the coolant I suggest doing a valve adjustment. That just might get the compression back on that one cylinder. If it doesn't help, then try...

    Rest pressure serves two purposes. The first one is to prevent vapor lock by keeping the fuel under pressure to prevent it from boiling till the motor cools off. The other purpose is to provide...

    When a car sits for a long time you lose all rest pressure. On start-up it takes a moment for the fuel pump to create enough pressure to operate the CSV. The CSV doesn't require much, not like the...

    When you convert to -134 you lose about 10% of your cooling capacity. With R-12 you have approximate 24,000 BTU's or 2 tons. Unlike a house A/C, the A/C in car does NOT have a constant capacity. In a...

    If you filled it with the correct amount of refrigerant (2.2 LBS of R-12), the gauges will only tell you if you have non-compressable gasses and the low pressure switch settings. If it is cycling...
