Re: Running too warm.

I had asked my dad through e-mail what he thought but he is in a camping and not always checking communication devices way right now and it took him a few days to reply, I didn't know if it would be a week or more, but he too suggested replacing the thermostat first since it's pretty cheap and easy ...

Re: Running too warm.

Thanks, feeling the radiator with my hand is a test I can do with what I have. I don't have a laser thermometer and don't know if someone I know has one but now I think I do see some of your and Ace's point about knowing what the actual temperature is. I had this idea that I recently changed the wat...

Re: Running too warm.

When I was looking to borrow one I think the price was more than I wanted to pay but maybe if I looked around I could find one cheaper.

Re: Running too warm.

Thank-you. I don't think it has any other common symptoms of a head gasket issue. How do you check compression for free? The one auto parts store around here that loans tools I asked about a compression tester for something on my Tercel and was told they don't have one in their loaner set. I think m...

Running too warm.

20240712_133844.jpg Hi all, I'm looking for thoughts on my '83 Sentra wagon running warm. It used to run with the temperature gauge at below halfway and now it frequently goes past. I am attaching an image. The green line is where it used to run and the yellow line is where it started to get to now...

Re: Fuel tank access hole

Thanks dlb. I sure didn't want to remove the tank. Have to think on whether it's worth it at this point when I don't know if that will give me an answer to the problem or not. Thanks again, at least now I know. I tried some tapping and prying from the top but with the little room to work I didn't ge...

Fuel tank access hole

Can anyone tell me if this plate should ideally just come right off once the screws are removed? Not be very stuck? It is to access the hole that is located in the cargo compartment that allows you to see into the fuel tank.

Re: Sputters or dies after running a while.

Hmm... Both good questions I don't know the answers to. I haven't messed with it running in weeks either so details aren't fresh in my mind. The last time I tried so I could check something my dad suggested I could not get it to quit running. There I was just wanting my car to stop running already a...

Re: Sputters or dies after running a while.

I want to take a look inside the fuel tank and from what I guess I just take out the five screws that were here (I'm including an image) and take the plate off. The plate feels pretty secure so I just want to find out if I am right that it should come off once the screws are out. Is that all that is...

Re: Sputters or dies after running a while.

It does have spark even when it's hot and not starting. But it is only stalling if it's been running a while. Distrubutor was my thought prior to swapping it and having the same issue with a diffferent disributor in it.

Re: Sputters or dies after running a while.

Thanks. I'm still not figuring it out. I won't be working on it this weekend but maybe by next.
