What kind of air box do you have? After racing in dirt for a few laps, is the air filter getting clogged up? I would say that or possibly intaking in hot engine air (cool air atomizes the fuel better). I'd start there... then move on to fuel issues.

Fuel system running rich


Sounds more like it's running lean. Have you checked fuel pressure at the rail? Could be the filter. Also try pulling the vacuum line off the regulator to see if the diaphragm is split and leaking fuel into the manifold.

Is a 97 2.4L GM motor capable of oval track racing performance. I've heard the oiling system and water pump can't handle it. Also been told that they work fine? What is what?



yes the 2.4 dual cam works well and fits great in most eco stock racing rules. I run one on a 3/8 mile high banked dirt track. The engines are light and so are the cavaliers. The waterpumps are not the easiest but i did not find it near as hard as everyone online cried about to change. Im not sure yet on the oil pump having a fualt to the bottom end issues, i lean more on the counter balance shafts airiating the oil at high rpms.

I race a 1994 saturn on a dirt track. My car runs


Is it a stock engine?

If so check your ECTS water temperature SENSOR not sender, it's located on the right side of the block towards the bottom drivers side engine compartment.

Change the harness connector to it as well it usually goes bad due to corrosion, the original ects sensor was plastic which cracks, the replacement is 8 bucks at auto zone and is brass.

If this goes bad your engine will run rich, waste a lot of fuel and foul the plugs causing the engine to cut out.

If this is fine then check your ignition system for failures due to vibration.

Ran the engine way too hard


Most of the time when this happends it has to do with valve train like broken valve spring, or bent valve , or even a bent push rod or colapes lifter, or rocker arm. At any rate i think your problem is in the valve train.

86 Mercury Lynx which is a rebadge Ford Escort


did you try shifting it manually by pulling the shift lever back to "1" then move up to "2" then finally "D"?

I think those old ATX transmissions had a governor that can be changed from the top of the trans without removing it. I think it is held in by a couple of bolts. Clean it with carb cleaner first. Easy repair.

Good luck and have fun. Report back findings and race rsults.
