You have one of two possible things that are not working. The sending unit in the tank may be bad, or the gage in the dash is not working. Use a "C" cell battery and hook the wires to the gage in the dash to the battery ends. If the gage moves the guage is good. If that is the result then you will need to replace the sending unit in the fuel tank. That will require removing (dropping) the fuel tank to gain access to the sending unit.

If it still hesitates I'd say it was a carburetor issue (accelerator pump, power valve..).

The idle mixture screws were nearly 3 turns out, I think i have them somewhere around 2.5 turns right now.

I need a smog diagram for a 1980 gm motor


Dave, you will need to find out which GM motor you have in 1980 GM probably had 40 car models considering Chev, Olds, Pont, Catalac, Buick ... Then you will have to find the info on that engine.. I suggest you try your local library, for an old book. or possibly advertise on Craigs list for literature or factory manual once you find out which engine you have.

How do i check my transmission fluid on my 1980


Normally there will be a plug, about 5/8" square on side of transmission about halfway up or higher that comes out and you simply use your finger in the hole. slide finger in to first joint, and bend it down. If it is touching fluid, your good, if not add until it does. Check manual if you still have it, or ask at parts store,but most likely 80/90 gear oil.

Can't get my headlights to work on my 1980 cj5 jeep


Most likely the dimmer switch is bad. It's a very common Jeep problem. If that's not it I would check the grounds to make sure they are good.
