Its hard to say without knowing your year, however, if you have an engine that uses a distributer, the best way is to remove your timing cover, and insure the timing mark are alighned and that your distributer is set to the #1 cylinder tdc, from there it should be a mater of small adjustments to the distributer. hope i was able to help.

Removel of injectors 1991 chevy 350 c.i. pick up

This repair is not that bad. ***NOTE: don't disassemble the TBI unit until you have purchased a new TBI gasket. The gasket is paper and when you remove the screws and pull the top half away, the gasket will tear.*** Remove the air cleaner housing and you will see the T.B.I. unit. Unplug both injectors, remove the torque head screws, and carefully pull the top have of the injector housing away. You now can remove the injectors. Just in case you don't know. If the fuel pressure regulator is original, this would be the time to replace it. I hope this helps, let me know how it went.

Just replaced blown head gasket now the car takes a long time to start and when it does it runs very ruff at idle but at 1500 rpm it levels out

did you have the heads milled or just throw a set of gaskets on it?You did put new spark plugs in it rite?

1985 Chevy: engine was idling, then i shut it off, when i went...

remove spark plug were the water was at. put your finger over the hole without burning yourself. have someone to turn the engine over a few times to see if more water comes out. try this on both spark plug holes one at a time. if you continue getting water from each plug hole then i would say you have a blown head gasket or maybe both depending if both plugs came from the same side,if not then both head gaskets are leaking. that problem would also make the truck or car run ruff/missing/hard to start. hope this will help you.

Rought idle

There is a tester you can use that screws on the radiator cap and you can pump it up to see if it has a leak down effect in the system.. This wont tell you where its exactly going but tells you if there is a leak in the head or intake gasket.. probably should start with the intake and replace it and see if it does the trick .. if not then tear it down and replace the head gaskets and or check heads for cracks also.. thanks Jerry
