Boy I wish I would have read this better.
There is a wealth of info!!I missed a few parts becuase I didn't understand it the first time.
I finally found a vacuum gauge(but haven't bought one[lack of funds])
When I called the SAME place(o'riellys) in the past they told me they didn't have anything like that.
I will try to tune it correctly after my next paycheck.
In the meantime it won't run at all.
It will run then it will die when I start driving.
It will lose all power and I will start having to pump the gas.
Too much gas will kill it and too little will kill it.
It was rather annoying trying to get it back to my dads yesterday.
It has plenty of fuel in it(put 4 gallons in after it started being REAL bad)
I can't drive it more than half a block without dying many many times.
It didn't seem like it was getting enough gas.
One of my dad's buddies suggested either a fuel pump(I didn't notice someone recommending that!I got confused and thought the carb accelerator pump was the same thing.
It doesn't have any vacuum leaks(used starting fluid and checked) and the fuel filter is clean and put in right.
Is it possible that all of my problems have been a "slowly dying" fuel pump?
I went to autozone and they didn't have any in my whole town(we have a ton of autzones).Everyone else is closed.
I plan to go to napa or pepboys tomorrow and get one.
Do you think that is the problem?Will it fix the other problems I have had?
I'll be really happy if it did
Also could my fitler in my fuel sender be extremely dirty helping cause this?I noticed a gas can I had been using in the past few weeks had some crap at the bottom of it.
