I have an awesome 25th Anniversary Kit Car Countach that I finished building this summer. I need some help with a few things and would really appreciate some advice and insight.
Nice job, looks good! Congrates on finishing such a huge undertaking. I'm doing the same, any advice? Mine is taking years....
FYI this site has an excellent search function where you can find tons of great help. Be sure to check both active and archives.
1. I am having fuel delivery problems. This is only on start up. The car runs great while driving and it starts up fine after it sits for a while. However, after running the engine it is very difficult to start within 30-60 minutes. I have to press down the pedal. I believe it is getting flooded and could be a leaking injector. How can I check to see if this is the cause? And how do I fix this? Or could it be something else?
It might be the ignition module (or something like that.) They tend to have those symptoms when it goes bad. Most people carry a spare in the car.
2. When I turn on all controls in the cab it bogs down the electric and sometime the radio turns off. I am guessing this is a bad ground to the fuse box? If so, how can I can fix this? Or could it be something else? The lights also dim in and out along with the sub woofer bass.
You could add a second battery. Easier, add a bunch of new ground wires, and clean the existing ones. Find the post titled something like "Everyone with a V6 please read this" http://www.fiero.nl/forum/F.../HTML/043240-10.html
3. The chassis started with a 2.5 iron duke and it was updated to the 2.8. The 1984 has different A/C compressor connections behind the drivers side cab in engine compartment. Where can I get the right hoses to fit the compressor on the 2.8? or where can I get an adapter to connect them? Does anybody know the exact sizes of the fittings from the compressor and the 1984 fittings coming from the front that are behind the driver in engine compartment?
can't help with this one
Thanks to everybody who replies and if any of you know anybody on this forum that can help me please forward them this posting
THANKS! you're welcome for what it's worth!
