What would cause water and water vaport to be injected into the carb via the vapor hose from the valve cover in a 1985 Chevrolet S10 truck?
Engine only has 95k miles. But gets driven very little.
Engine is over heating (280 degress. It will run but stumbles and stalls obviously from the water gettng back into the carb. If vaporor hose is disconnected, the engine will run but not very well.
I suspects a blown head gasket or a leaking block to manifold gasket. The cat convertor gas never been replaced so that would be a suspect also.
The fan clutch does not seem to be working propertly either using the "hand spin test.' Ot spins very freely//
I intend to run a compression test on it to verify.
I have never seen water in the being injected into and engine as discriobe and need an opinion as to why that is happening.
have the same problem?
