Dry out all the ignition parts, distributor cap (inside and out) plug wires and caps including coil wire with a hair drier or heat gun on low. If no hair drier is not available dry the best you can and give a light spray with WD40.

SOURCE: I have a 65 mustang 200 engine. After changing

Make sure you were given the right plugs for the car (correct heat range) also check the choke plate after the car warms up to ensure the choke plate is all the way open.

check for spark at the spark plugs. If ok then check for fuel and if that's ok then you need to check the timing chain.

1998 buick park avenue 82537 miles driving along at 65 miles per hour service engine light comes on about every half a second it would beep shortly there after the engine started to surge and still going...


first check there is spark at the spark plugs, if ok check fuel pressure and fuel flow, if ok check injector pulse by holding while the starter is engaged. One of the above will be at fault.

My corvair engine does not have a pcv system, can I tap a vacuum line off one of the valve covers and filter incoming air into the oil fill spout>


Generally speaking, yes.
You would also need to plug the road draft tube.
The system would need to pull vac on the pcv valve from one side of the engine and allow air to enter the crankcase thru the air filter from another access point such as the oil filler pipe.

Car not start after overheating


I was driving at about 65 mph on the highway and the first thing i noticed was the trac off light blinking on and off. Also, there was some sporadic sound coming from somewhere and thought nothing of it. Then, I couldnt accelerate anymore and pulled to the side right away as the engine was thumping. Opened the hood and saw smoke coming out. I had also put antifreeze in the car a few days ago and it was bone dry. So apparently, I have a leak. I tried to start the car again after an hour and half with antifreeze in the car and nothing. Anyone have any suggestions??? I should mention that i do hear the engine trying to ignite but it sounds like its misfiring and it won't start.

My 2005 sport trac basicly chokes down and won't restart. After afew hours it cranks right up! Last time was one and a half years ago ! Until today.


Clogged catalitic converters can cause this. The engine will start and run for a bit, but as the engine tries to exhaust the gases they have no where to go. And this will shut th engine down. To check remove one of the 02 sensors in front of the converter. If it runs fine theres your problem. If the converters are clogged badly, your engine will run better, but maybe not as well as it should. the reason being is that the hole for the 02 sensor is not big enough to vent all the exhaust.
