Re: Car runs, dies, runs

I am pretty sure it had a new fuel filter( less than 1500 miles) on it. when i drove it it did not totally die. I did not have to pull over and wait. It just went blahhh for a couple hundred feet then recovered for several hundred yards. Never backfired so that seems like fuel issue.

Car runs, dies, runs

My friends tercel dies after driving for 15 minutes then restarts after a few minutes. Then repeats. I am thinking distributor but what in the dist. would cause that and is there a quick test?

Re: Gas leak

Check the seal of the plate on top of tank for gas gauge sender. Lift rear carpet and remove cover plate (3 small screws). If that seal is good you would have to drop the tank to inspect where the tubing attaches to tank.

Re: Rear carburetor idle/throttle return spring

Also its not the throttle return spring, its for the fast idle on cold starts. The throttle return spring is much larger and stiff . It attaches to same place throttle cable connects and back to mount on head

I was thinking he might have the top belt cover off and was looking at lower crank belt pulley mark.

Re: Harmonic Balancer

The pulley could have separated. Its held in place with rubber by, probably what is called vulcanized.

Re: Rear carburetor idle/throttle return spring

Re: Carburetor Main metering system works at idling

I would try another carb. I keep several around for ruling out or in a carb. Might have missed something on the rebuild.

sudden dying at stop now and then

I have tried two different carb's on a tercel. the car dies when you come to a stop about one out of ten stops. the bottom just falls out of the idle. i thought it might be the primary fuel cut solenoid not getting voltage, like faulty wiring or something so i rigged it directly to battery and it di...
