Question about 1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88
My car kept stalling and stopping on me the other day, later i realized that a large hose(in diameter) was disconnected from my distributing cap. I plugged it back in and my car ran a little better. A friend told me that it sounded like i needed new spark plugs so i took it to a "friend of a friend" and they changed them. In the process, they told me that my vacuum line had holes in them, they took them out and replaced some and didn't have enough hose to complete the job, but they said that it would be okay. now my car is running worse, it shakes and now everytime i start it, it stops again. Could he have put the spark plugs on wrong or did he screw me by taking off the vacuum line? PLEASE HELP
If the vac. line went to the distributer cap you need to get a new 1 take off the line and take it to the auto parts store and get a new 1. What that vac. line does is adjust the timing when you give the car gas. Did he make shur to gap the plugs to the wright gap? If he did and you put a new vac. line on check all of the vac. line if they have cracks change them. If the still runs ruff he might have moved the distributer, or he might have got the wires wrong if he changed the spark plug wires. Change the vac. lines first they are cheap.
