Check the needle and seat in the carbs, sounds as if the needle is not seating allowing gas to flow till pressure in the lines drop. Since bowl is full the gas will force its way out any place it can. Usually a gasket. Good luck!! Hope I gave you an idea of where to look.

Try using the additive called lucas oil treatment,with your oil change,wear can cause this,and the lucas will lube better,and cause the lifters to fill up easy.

My question: what can cause the car to do this?


I assume the car you are talking about is your 1968 Dodge Dart GTS with a 4-speed manual transmission. The engine has a special camshaft, Chrysler P/N 312044, which has a 60 degree overlap in the valve timing, since the engine is built to rev in excess of 6,000 RPM. The problem with your car is obviously a leaky accelerator pump. Why don't you get a car that (1) does not have to run on premium gas (because of its 10.5:1 compression ratio), and (2) uses fuel injectors instead of a wild 4 barrel carburetor made for 1/4 mile drag racing? I happen to know that that is the car you are referring to, because you did NOT say that it WASN'T!

My ford escape 2008 hybrid suddenly runs at higher rpms and idles at 1500 rpms. yesterday it worked fine and idled at 1100 rpms


You need the engine computer scanned for faults first, if nothing shows up you likely have a problem with the transmission, likely it is not shifting into overdrive.

Would a 4.88 ring and pinion gear lower my speed too low for street driving for my '93 chevy s-10 2.8 engine 2 WD w/a 5 speed manual transmission?


normal street diff ratios are in the 3:1 or 3.5: ratios as these give best performance speed and economy
fitting that ratio will give a lower top speed and may affect the economy as it makes the engine seem more powerful so less throttle is need for take off
it also will have higher rpms at your normal driving speed
(example -- normal ratio --60 mph 3000 rpms new ratio 60 mph-- 3250 rpms )
the speedo reading will be out as well enough to get into trouble with speed cameras
if you are not a led foot and take you time in traffic it will be just a bit slower
the only real way is to try it and see if you like the result

Both are possible but from your description it sounds like the truck is in limp home mode. You need to put a scanner on it and see if any codes are set. Then repair the code and reset it then see what happens.

My 1992 honda accord was running fine then the transmission started acting funny now it will run fine for about 2 miles then it will lose rpm's you have to shut the car off use the key to override the...


You should not loose rpms, if anything the rpms should rise and car no go,the shifter problem may be a bad brake light switch or fuse but has nothing to do with the preformance of the trany, if you loose rpms then this sounds like an engine problem like its loose fuel due to fuelpump or spark, i would have this problem checked before any trany work is done . hope this helps.

Low oil when engine warms up gmc sierra 1995


30-40 psi of oil pressure is fine for many vehicles including your GMC. I am assuming that the truck has more than 100,000 miles on it and still has the original engine in it. By rule of thumb you only need 10 psi per 1000 rpms in a typical street driven engine to give adequate oil pressure to keep the bearings from oil starvation. The oil pressure is typically higher when initial start up occurs because it is more viscous due to the temperature of the oil as the engines oil warms up the visconsity thins out and the oil flows more smoothly. The drop in oil pressure is a normal occurance. Above 45 is more than required for a daily driven street engine. I believe that the specs on that engine only list 30- 45 psi.
