Check your Distributor cap for any cracks. If it's humid where you are the moisture gets in there and causes it to not fire correctly. If anything, try spraying wd-40 onto you Distributor cap. i mean everywhere. It sealed mine up and now I dont have to change it yet.

What is the course of late firing


Late firing or retardant ignition is the condition caused by incorrect ignition timing. Ignition timing is a setpoint established by the engineers as the optimum setting for ignition efficiency. This setting is a few degrees before TDC or top dead center. TDC is the point on 360 degree scale at 0 . This indicates the #1 cylinder has its piston travel at the top
Limit of the stroke. If your condition has firing occurring after the few degrees Before TDC then this can be called late firing. You have a timing issue.

1979 GMC Carb issues


You haven't provided a lot to go on here but I'll take a stab in the dark. If you are somewhere that is unusually cold, maybe you just need to let it warm up. Could be the choke is not working, could be the choke is closing but wont open because the heat riser passage in the intake manifold is plugged up with carbon, could be the fuel pump is weak or the filter is plugged and the carb is starving for fuel even though the tank is full.

To check the choke operation, take off the air cleaner lid before you try to start it and operate the throttle by hand while watching the choke plate. It should snap shut. If it does rack the throttle two more times, start it up and watch the choke plate. it should open just a little (maybe 3/8') on a cold day let it run on fast idle for a few minutes, as it starts to warm up the choke should open more. And be fully open after a little while. Given it's age it would not surprise me at all if the carburetor is not working right. If you are going to take it to a shop, look for a mechanic in his late 40's. I know that sounds weird but most of the young guys out there have never even seen a quadrajet let alone rebuilt one.

Temperature gauge goes up then down engine


Sounds like the thermostat is sticking, on warm up on lot of vehicle the gauge goes past normal and when the thermostat opens drops back. If it is going higher than normal, the thermostat is opening late. Needs changing before it stops opening altogether.

My gas light came on and I went and put $10 of gas in it. After filling when I came to a complete stop, car would either sputter or hesitate to move. A few hours later, car will not start and is acting as...


Depending on the type of vehicle you have I would look at the throttle position sensor. If the engine acts like it is getting no gas, and you know you have put gas in it, depress the valve on the fuel rail to see if you have fuel pressure or not. If you do I'd save 5 to 1 you're Fuel pressure regulator went bad and could be diverting your gas through the vacuum system. More common on late 80's to mid-late 90's model vehicles.

I have a '95 Thunderbird Lx with a 4.6 L V8 that will sometimes turn over but will not start. It used to be a rare occurance and would eventually start after waiting awhile (sometimes an hour or so)...


i had the same kind of problem and if you pull the spark plug wires you'll see big black holds that the spark is going to the side of engine instead of going to plug. Change wires!

My heater just started to blow cold air, what are


first likely problem is low antifreeze. If there isn't enough, it can't fill the heater core. wait til it cools down - about five minutes in this weather ;) and then open the radiator and fill it with antifreeze/water combination. If it takes a bit (more than a few pints, then you might try adding some Bars leak or radiator stop leak junk.

If radiator is already full then you probably have a blocked heater core or a stuck thermostat and will need to take it in.

Jetta has no gas pedal pressure


If this car has a carb, the most common problem is the auto choke mechanism get siezed/ gummed up. Remove tha carb plenum in the morning before starting. Depress the accelerator pedal and check that the flap on top of the carb has closed.
