Re: slightly high/low idle once warm

Does it have OBD1? If it does, and if OBD1 has engine data, you can check O2 sensor fuel trims to inspect for a leak.

Re: What fuses should be on these wires supplying power to engine fusebox?

http://atlanticz.ca/zclub/techtips/fusiblelinks/index.html Hallelujah praise Google! A fresh cup of coffee later and I manage to give google the right search query to get results! I'll probably get some aftermarket fuse holders and slow blow fuses for a fresher look. Probably cheaper than going to T...

Re: What fuses should be on these wires supplying power to engine fusebox?

Found them in the wiring diagram.

WHT/RED has a fusible link named "FL 0.3P"; WHT has one named "FL 1.25B". I guess FL is "fusible link," but what is a 0.3P and a 1.25B?

Re: What fuses should be on these wires supplying power to engine fusebox?

I there are supposed to be 4 terminals, but the PO removed half of them to bypass fuses. This is on an '85. EDIT: Wait, what exactly is this supposed to be, anyway? I checked ...

What fuses should be on these wires supplying power to engine fusebox?

What amperage on each wire? I can trace them, so go ahead and give me the OEM wire colors, or tell me which circuit needs what amperage and I will test them to ID them.

Re: Sooo.....Blown Head Gasket.....

The easiest way to tell if your issues are due to a blown head gasket is to let it run and see if coolant is dripping on the floor. If you're losing coolant and it's not dripping out on the floor, there's only one place it can go, regardless of whether or not you have steamy exhaust, or foam in the ...

Re: Stripped Tercel wagon

Claiming ownership of abandoned property depends on the state (or province). Contacting your local police about it would be a first step.

Re: WTB input shaft bearing

I wonder if you could modify a bearing with the same dimensions so that it didn't need the retainer or fabricate a retainer that doesn't need the recessed cut.

Re: Broken TVSV

I did not like the first car I got with an automatic choke, I could not control the mixture nor adjust for different air temps. The best thing about newer cars is that they can do these things themselves, correctly, and in a very wide variety of conditions with great accuracy (for the most part). I...

I've only ever had the one car, but I'm sure Zach won't miss the impala much. Lord knows I won't miss that frickin' car for even a moment.
