Get yourself some rolls of wire and a box of connectors, a pair of wire strippers and a wire end crimping tool, and replace each wire ONE at a time. Your only other option is to take the breather that you removed from the carb to put the gas in, and go find another car that it will fit. Drive that one.

SOURCE: WIRING DIAGRAM FOR 1984 AMC EAGLE

well you have several options you can go to a dealship and have them copy the diagram for you(i do this all the time) or you can purchase a repair manual at Napa or Oreilly's for around 20 bucks. it has diagrams and schematics in it. it also has alot of instructions in it so you can do repairs yourself. By the way i'm surprised that the mechanic doesn't have these diagrams himself. I was wandering why it won't start after you changed the plugs and wires could it be that maybe the firing order is wrong. i've done that myself a time or 2. double check the the plug wires to make sure they are in the right spot. if the problem is it won't crank. chances are you have a loose ground. please rate this..thanks

SOURCE: The belt keeps coming loose

You need to replace the alternator belt.they have a bolt which you loosen the belt. the belt probably got loose because this "tension" bolt was not properly tightened. the noise you hear is the belt slipping on the pullies. to replace it loosen the tension bolt until it is lose enough to remove the old belt. replace the belt with one of the same thickness and length. Be sure to tighten the bolt to where the belt will have about a 1/2 inch pressing down on it firmly with your thumb. you may have to remove some other components ( the fan for example) to replace the belt but thats questionable.

1988 amc eagle wagon when starting cold it will not stay running. it will start back upwith several pumps of the gas pedal then stalls again when it finally gets to normal operating temp. then it idles...


It sounds like carburetor problems. Have you tried a new gas filter?
Check if the choke is operating properly-it may be open too far for a cold engine. The fuel level in the carburetor bowl may be set too low. You might also want to check volume flow from the mechanical fuel pump: disconnect gas line to carb and catch the fuel in a container as you crank the engine-watch fuel flow and volume-it should give a pint or two after half a minute of cranking, maybe less cranking time. Also check the needle valve at the inlet for carb-sometimes a tiny bit of trash or debris will clog up the needle valve. If all else fails, try a rebuild kit for the carb-those simple old carbs should be easy to rebuild.
How long since last tune-up?

I have a 93 Eagle Vision we ran out of gas now the car will turn over but is getting no fire


There may be an air lock in the fuel line or fuel pump.
Pour some fuel in the carby and start the engine. You may need to do this a few times to get the air lock out of your fuel line/pump.

Go to faxonautoliterature. They carry dealer service manuals and have the manual you are looking for. As a matter of fact you can either get the manual for the whole car or one for the transmission only. I have used them before and had excellent service. Hope this helps.

Amc dies?


For a older car like yours, sometime sick just like an older people. Car is different, if you can find the reason why cause this kind problem, as soon as you fix it, it will run for a while, but it is not easy, I think when you drive for a while, the engine is hot and inside is over heated, the ring on the piston expanded, that’s cause the engine stalled, after 10 to 15 minutes, the engine cool down, it will start and drive a short distance again and wait until the engine getting hot again, it will stall again.

How do you solve this problem, go to junk yard and find a low mileage engine put in or rebuild your engine.

Hope this can help.

1989 jeep grand wagoneer--no gas getting to carb.--


That may be right - no gas in the carb is likely a bad fuel pump, or a clogged fuel filter.
