    1984 4.1 air pump

    The thing i'm asking about is right under the alternator. What is it and what does it do? Can I disconnect it? Had a drive belt snap in just a week and this pump feels a little rough to turn

    Door Won't Unlock!!

    Had mine in storage indoors this summer for a few months. when I went to fetch it I had the same prob with passenger door lock. What cured mine was repeatedly using the lock/unlock button, and forcibly turning the key in the lock, and pulling lock knob upwards. Eventually it started to shift...

    Exhaust advice wanted

    Well to update you I never did the exhaust as the car was stored all summer. Now however, it's fallen apart. I'm going to have the whole thing fabricated from the headers back. No cats, whatever mufflers the shop has. Maybe two glasspacks on each pipe, one in stock location and one where the...

    How to blank off EGR?

    Having priced up exhaust systems online ($500 shipping!) I've decided I ned to have one made up here. Went for a quote yesterday to have one built in stainless. They seemed to have no idea how to do it and quoted £1000. That's like $2000! So-o, there's another place I can go that build...

    '84 4.1 idle too high

    How is the idle speed controlled on my 1984 4.1 sedan deville? The idle is high which is making the car push on when I brake. The other day when it was wet the front wheels locked up and I carried straight on across a road junction. Not good, I need to get this sorted!

    I think I need to start attending meetings...

    Is the exhaust good enough to warrant removal and sale?

    1947 Cadillac

    Thanks for that. Trouble is I have to get everything in from the states of course and old Caddy stuff aint cheap. A full rebuild kit is about 4 times the price of a chevy one!

    Well, I bought it. Had it delivered. Engine was real sweet. Drove it about 5 miles & Bang. Removed head yesterday to find I could move number 8 piston up and down the bore by hand. Oh dear...

    Another UK MKVII

    225 bhp & plenty of torque. Underpowered? Depends on your opinion I suppose, but performance only seems to suffer at high rpm and if you suddenly floor it. With the newer multiple injection set-ups the performance is identical.

    Another UK MKVII

    It's quite common in some European countries although not that common in Britain yet. It's very popular in Sweden with American car owners. Your best bet is to try an internet search for LPG. However, In a (big) nutshell: LPG stands for Liquid Petroleum Gas and is also known as Autogas. It is...

    Exhaust advice wanted

    Do the off road H or X pipes still have somewhere for the exhaust gas sensors etc to fit? I mean are they a straight swap or do I need to modify the wiring?

    Did you buy Super Turbos for a Mark VII or a Mustang GT?

    Exhaust advice wanted

    I've been looking on the rock auto website, and, well, don't stone me for this, but they do list a stock replacement Mark VII exhaust with a Dynomax Super Turbo muffler option. What would be so bad about this? At least it's be a straight fit. Any idea what the difference would be?

    Exhaust advice wanted

    phew, there's just too many Mustang exhaust options on there for me! H-pipe or X-pipe? cat back or full off road? (I don't need the cats)

    leaking oil level sender

    The thing screwed into the side of my oil pan, that I assume to be a level sensor, is leaking oil out. Do you think it will require replacing or is there some kind of gasket/seal that can be tightened/renewed?
