While tuning for the best fuel mileage a vehicle is capable of is a protracted and time intensive process of returning everything from the ground-up as far as possible to how the manufacturer would like it to be, the consumption of your car is so great it should be patently obvious where the fuel is going...

Assuming it isn't being leaked away which should be obvious and should be the first check made - getting underneath while the engine is running and checking with a good light, a good spark proof light...
If it isn't being leaked away the fuel must be being consumed by the engine and in this case the engine wouldn't sound right, wouldn't smell right and wouldn't run right, in fact, using several times more fuel than it should, it should be difficult to start, misfiring due to sooted or wet spark plug(s) and producing black exhaust smoke and/or flammable vapour.

Depending where that fuel is going, your car could be potentially dangerous to be around it and you need the urgent assistance of an expert. It could have an injector stuck open, for instance...

Is your car battery working fine? Are you able to start the car? Check for any blown fuse. Power windows may also stop working temporarily if the car is submerged in water. Was you car submerged in water? Let the system dry, it should start working normally if fuse is not blown.

It could be the fuse, the relay or the fan motor. Start by checking the fuse and if it's good swap the relay with one with the same number if the fan doesn't run unplug it and use a test light to check for current if the test light lights the fan motor is bad. I hope this helps. Take care.

1992 will be an OBD I system.The ALDL connector is different that all other systems from 1996 and newer. You can scan the codes by jumping out pin A and pin B. This will cause your check engine light to blink your stored codes.

i don't know. perhaps having both beams on that long may draw too much electricity. please repair the high beams
so they light without delay. an auto wrecker yard might let you switch out parts from one of their used vehicles.

You can replace just the outer shell, but suggest replacing the inner circuit board also.

Go to an auto-parts store, walk up to the counter, tell them you need a belt, and they'll get you the belt you need.

If you're replacing the handle because it broke cut the wire and use it to pull the new one down through the column, if you're just taking it out look for the small connector under the dash and attach a piece of wire to it then unplug it and pull it up and out of the column then unscrew the handle there are flats cut into the handle for this purpose. Pull enough wiring up to accomplish your project then pull it back down when done. I hope this helps. Take care.
