Engine Performance problem
1981 Ford Fairmont 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic
simple question(I think), I have a 1981 ford Fairmont Futura w/ 3.3l straight 6 engine 1 bbl carb. It has been sitting up for a while waiting for me to put in a trans. After I finally did that, I had to drop the gas tank and clean for rust, along with the fuel lines and carb rebuild. I put in new plugs, dist. Cap, wires, changed the oil, etc. The car starts just fine. The problem is after idling for awhile, it begins to stall. Especially after I hit the gas pedal. Reading some of the other questions I kind of figured it has something to do with a "too lean" gas mixture. If this is correct, how do I fix it? If not, what is the problem.
have the same problem?
