I'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR A LONG TIME TO CORRECT THE MOTOR PERFORMANCE AND STILL GET GOOD MPG.(8-10)
NOW I NEED TO SMOG THIS MONTH AND I COULD USE SOME HELP IN ANY IDEAS WHAT IS WRONG. ALREADY BEEN TO TWO MECHANICS AND PREFER TO DO IT MYSELF ANYHOW, I KNOW MY TRUCK BETTER THAN THEM.
SOME VACUUM LINES BROKE WHEN THE HEADS WHERE DONE AND I THINK THAT IS MOST OF MY PROBLEM, INCORRECT ROUTING?
PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN, THANKS.
I have a mechanic friend helping me and checked the vac lines to diagram, they are correct. We took off the IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE to check it out since it seems like the choke no longer works, do you know how to test one of these?
Also found that #3 cylinder is weak and #4 not working. Doing compression check next.
Spark is good, Fuel injectors?
Any ideas? Thanks
