  • Help, Chevy old school engine chokes out after turning key off?

    When I turn the key off, for a quick second the engine tries to start it self up in a "choke" like manner. After it does its thing, the engine is off. Its intermediate, happens more when warmed up. 

    sequence is, Engine running, turn the key off, engine off, engine then runs in a "choke" like way ( best way to describe it is that it sounds like there is little bits of gas left in the carb and its burning that last bit off shaking and barely running), then engine completely off.

    I do have issues with starting, I have to hold to key and wait a few seconds for the starter to engage sometimes.

    I don't know much about chevy engines, any respond would be appreciated.

  • 1966 Ford Mustang V8 Conversion Using 1968 Donor?

    I have a 1966 factory straight 6 manual

    using 1968 v8 donor all complete.

    Is this a direct interchange for the main portion of the swap? Engine and trans, power steering, brake booster, and rear end?

    Looks like I need to change the bottom crossmember as the 68 seem deeper and also the engine mount brackets.

    Any tips or heads up appreaciated!

  • Americans with Disabilities Act 1990?

    I have received a lawsuit concerning this issue. I have a security company and one of my guards refused a man with a dog to come inside the store. After speaking with a lawyer, it appears that this guy does this for a living. He purposely goes into these asian stores and because most asian markets arent educated with these things, he sues them after any refusal of entry happens. Last year, he opened 150 cases including mine.

    My question is, is there any protection against people like us, us as in the 150 groups getting sued for the same reason, against people like him, who PURPOSELY abuse the law towards people with out much education in these rules and laws? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Alarm doesnt work 2000 SLK 230?

    Ok. I checked my PSE module and it was bad. Before, the lights wouldnt shut off. So i replaced the module and the wiring harness for the PSE, the wires were all burnt. I spliced the new harness to a section behind/lower bottom of the passenger seat. Now everything works besides the alarm. The lights doesnt stay on, the parking light doesnt stay on (before these would stay on even if the car is off). it took me 5 hours to replace all of this. I dont mind tracing my steps. but im positive that every wire is connected. Any advice? Much appreciated. Also if you guys got some knowledge on which wire is for the alarm, I can use that and trace it to see if anything is wrong.

  • plug inside gas tank burnt?

    well i removed my fuel pump cause i had issues getting the car started. i noticed the problem. my plug from the inside was burnt. the wires are burnt as well. now theres 4 plugs in the socket, two of them are burnt, the other two are not used. im thinking of move it over to the plugs that arent being used. question is, will it be safe for me to solder up direct wires to the plug and direct it to my fuel pump? also what type of compound could i add to the plug so that it wont burn out again. i know factory put some paste with the sockets.

  • Failed smog with high HC reading?

    my smog report tells me that everything is right besides high HC readings. after my research i found out it can be cause by spark plugs, air filter, and wires. also others but mainly that. i changed out my spark plugs n air filter. the spark plugs were in a 3/10 condition and air filter 3/10 also.. question is, how high of a HC will bad spark plugs give? reason because i have one freetest and i dont want to pay another $50. if theres other things i should look at please recommend me towards that. thanks!

    max was roughly 150. i measured at 358.
