I just got this car yesterday. The engine seems pretty well maintained. There are several new parts that have been put into the car rather recently.
The engine seems to run ok except for this little problem
I step on the gas the car stalls and the service engine soon light comes on.
I have my suspicions that this vehicle has sat arround for a while and the gas is bad in it. So I have been driving it arround the back streets trying
to empty the gas tank so I can put better quality gas in it.
So a friend comes over and we take a look he recomends getting a new air filter and a new fuel filter.
Air filter (easy even I know how to chainge this.
Fuel Filter (I got the part, now I have no Idea where to put it.) the part he pointed out as a fuel filter is not that but a PCV valve well I think, I
ordered a new one. Bout 4 bucks so even if it's not that im not too far out of pocket.
I also need help cleaning the carburator, Is this a pain in the butt? I don't know.
Anyway those plus an oil chainge seem to be in order for my car at this point. Other thain that. Belts are all new, new alternator, new battery new
other parts so thats all good.
Any Help would be apreciated.
