Yes that is ok, bit the 66 is a bit low, do you have congestive heart failure?

    Well even though the pressure is ok it is on the low side, from my own experience this is most often caused by an enlarged heart. But if your cardiologist says you are good and you had a sonogram of the heart them you are good to go.

How do you remove the trim around the headlight on a 1946 dodge coupe? I took the screw out of the bottom and it is stuck do I pry on it?


Hi Arnold:
You're making me think way back on this one. I had a '48 when I was 17 years old. I'm 72 now.
If I remember somewhat correctly, the headlight mounted in a sort of "shell". There were alignment screws, and also retaining screws. A screwdriver (#2 Phillips?) removed the retaining screws, and the trim around the headlight was sort of like a clamp held in place by a small bolt or screw that went through 2 tabs.
Guaranteed, even if my specifics are not correct, the procedure of methodically dis-mantling it will work.
Good on ya!
Keep that old iron running.

What year is this engine? and ci


From this chart - I think you may be misreading the number - 3970010 is possibly the actual number: Which makes the engine pretty old 68-72 350 V8 - 4 bolt main. I included past this number so that you can see that the number you posted doesn't actually exist. And thus my conclusion that the 9 is most likely a 0. Hope this helps. 3970010 350 69 Corvette late 69,4 bolt main 3970010 302 69 Camaro Z/28,Late 69, 4 bolt main 3970010 350 69-79 Truck 2&4 bolt main 3970010 350 69-79 Pass,Chevelle,Camaro,Nova,MonteCarlo 2&4 bolt main 3970010 350 70 Corvette 300,350,370 HP 4 bolt main 3970010 350 71 Corvette 270,330 HP 4 bolt main 3970010 350 72 Corvette 200,255 HP 4 bolt main 3970014 350 69-77 Pass,Chevelle,Camaro, Nova,MonteCarlo 2 or 4 bolt main 3970014 350 69-79 Truck 2 or 4 bolt main 3970014 350 72 Corvette late &undefined;72,200 HP,255HP 4 bolt main 3970020 307 68-73 Pass,Chevelle,Camro, Nova 3970020 307 69-73 Truck 3970024 307 69-73 Pass,Chevelle,Camro, Nova,Truck 3992386 327 68-69 Pass,Chevelle,Camro, Nova,Truck Large Jounal

2003 mazda tribute, occasionally won't start. fuel pump replaced about 1 month ago. bad starter?


Many batteries may only last around three years. Check battery voltage at rest before starting. Any voltage in the low 12v range may be a sign of a faulty battery.If low voltage present, then perform a parasitic drain test:1) Disconnect battery POSITIVE terminal and connect ammeter in series, between battery positive terminal and positive lead.
DO NOT START THE VEHICLE!!

2) With all vehicle doors closed, alarm off, lights off, radio off, and all other accessories off, wait for around 20 minutes and then read the ammeter. A healthy system should read about 0.03 amps and little more. If reading more, then the vehicle could be suffering a parasitic amp drain, and you will need to locate this issue.


3) Reconnect battery when finished.


If no major parasitic drain present, yet low battery voltage then:


4) With vehicle started, check the voltage charge from the alternator. Connect voltmeter to battery terminals and take reading. A healthy system should be charging in the range of 14volts or down to around 13.5 volts. If reading around 12 volts only, then check and replace alternator.

2004 E150 van wont start. -5 degrees last night, battery is less than a year old and tests out OK according to NAPA test. When key is thrown, just a click is heard. Dash volt meter reads normal,...


START BY CLEANING THE BATTERY TERMINALS. NEG CABLE OFF FIRST THEN POSITIVE. CLEAN CABLES & TERMINALS PUT CABLES BACK ON & TIGHTEN POS. FIRST, NEGATIVE ON LAST & TIGHTEN. IF THAT DOESN'T DO IT. LOCATE STARTER RELAY ON FENDERWELL. TURN KEY TO START. MEASURE VOLTAGE AT STARTER RELAY. IT SHOULD READ NEAR 12 VOLTS. IF NOT CHECK NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH. THE STARTER MAY BE STUCK OR WORN AS A LAST RESORT HOLD IGNITION SWITCH IN START POSITION, AT THE SAME TIME TAP ON METAL PART OF STARTER WITH MEDIUM SIZE HAMMER. IF STARTER GOES AFTER HAMMER TEST, REPAIR OR REPLACE STARTER.

OBD error code 72 on my 1996 Jeep Cherokee Classic, 6 cyl, 4wd. 72 in not in my code list for this vehicle, but comes back to the catalytic converter in other vehicles. I used the "key switch on/off" for...


well code 12 is what it shows up first telling you it's running the test that is normal. if it reads code 12 and nothing else then that means everything is fine. well catalytic converters are expensive to buy i price checked one for you at auto zone its $147.99 with a 5yr warranty. good luck hope i helped

What will bring readings into limit


A failing oxygen (O2) -sensor will give failing emission tests. Normally you also get other symptoms:

- too high fuel consumtion
- bad acceleration, stalling problems, sputtering
- the check engine light comes on indicating that the engine control unit has recorded error codes (which will be related to readings of incorrect fuel/air ratio when read by the OBD diagnostics tool at a repair shop).

It is always a good idea to see if you can get any readings from the check engine light if present or much better by an OBD reader to be as certain as possible.

Another component that could cause failing emissions tests is the catalytic converter, giving a similar range of symptoms. To determine if this is the cause is not so easy on older cars with only one O2 sensor, it requires diagnostic skills and equipment. On newer cars with OBDII-systems it will give a recognizable fault code for the cat converter.

Then there are also the issues of the actual cause of malfunction in either or both of these components, is it due to old age and normal wear and tear or is it due to contamination from burning oil (blue tail pipe smoke) or anti-freeze (white smoke), misfiring, etc? Then the cause must be treated as well for a successful repair.

Normally these components have a very long life span and should not have to be replaced more than once or maybe twice for the sensors during the car's lifetime in an otherwise health engine.

Good luck!
