Items recently replaced:
All vacuum lines and caps
Lean Burn ECM
Some sort of sensor near the distributor
Distributor cap and rotor
PCV Valve/Valve grommet
Plugs and wires
The carburetor was recently rebuilt by a professional mechanic
Timing is advanced. (I can't fix it as I don't have a wrench for the distributor clamp, I have to wait until the weekend when I can borrow the tool from my neighbor.)
High engine speed
Sort of busted neutral safety switch (sometimes won't start in park. I have the part just not the jack to lift the car up.)
So when driving, I accelerate fine, I pick up speed well. When I come to a stop the car will stall, if I slow down to make a turn without stopping it stalls. I'm pretty sure I don't have any vacuum leaks as checked by spraying carb cleaner around the block, around gaskets and lines. I recently ran Lucas Oil fuel system cleaner through the gas tank and Marvel Mystery Oil a few hundred miles ago. When I took the carb off to replace the base gasket, a bunch of carbon poured out of the vapor return. I've thought to make sure that there isn't any blockages in the gas tank or fuel pump, I just haven't had the ability to check as I need to borrow tools from neighbors and dad.
have the same problem?
