RUNABILITY

1993 Chevrolet Caprice • 350,000 miles

Replaced transmission, removed engine oil pan had a level sensor in it I removed this item and welded shut hole assembled unit could not find replacement fuel line so I used rubber gas line ( old were rusted and brittle) all vacuum lines were brittle and broke into pieces, used rubber line, not sure if hooked up correctly cant find vacuum line schematic.I think I might have hooked up fuel lines backwards then tried to start, would not start so I switched fuel lines starts runs low idle try to accelerate then dies if I feather the gas pedal it will run but header glows red. Also how do I know which trans line goes were, im assuming top line goes to top of cooler?

Tranny cooler lines are pre-bent, the bends should indicate location.

The glowing header tells me way too lean. Either the fuel lines are wrong, or the fuel pump isn't delivering enough pressure, or the computer is reading the air/fuel mixture wrong.

Vacuum schematic SHOULD be under the hood.
