Recommended Posts

Its like 105 degress right now and I'm baking in the sun. Someone help me.

My car drove here fine. Started fine when I left. It starts, then when I press on the gas to go, it dies. Please help! Any quick fixes so I don't have to tow. I'm melting here!!

try:

Popping the gas cap

adding gas to the tank

checking the fuel filter for fuel

removing the fuel line from the carb and cranking the car to see if you are getting gas from the pump.

if you have the little fuel bypass valve between the carb and pump, by pass the thing and see if you then get fuel from the pump

just my thoughts

2002 newbie, and dead serious about it.

Points ? are they pitted ? Back when I was a newb, all my stranded 2002 episodes ended up in my brother showing up & finding out my points were worn or pitted. I started keeping sand paper in car tool box & lightly sanding them would restore operation.

call a tow truck. just joking:) last time i was stranded on the side of the 405 it was the type of power that i had my MSD 6a connected to for example it needed to see system voltage (12.6v or higher) while cranking or regular operation. i realize you didnt give any info on your car. so garbage in garbage out.

I think it eneded up being more serious than I thought. I had a friend come out to help me and he got it running but on if he was on the gas. It wouldn't idle, and then it started making high pitch scratching sounds like metal on metal. I check the oil and bam. Absolutely no oil! I just had an oil change done at pro lube about a week ago! Can it be burning that much oil? I check my drive way for oil leak spots and its clean...
