    Sluggish power, where to start?

    my 91 has been feeling really sluggish for a while now. I've read posts on the subject but I'm looking for a list to work down. Don't know if this makes a difference but my exhaust sounds pretty quiet (puttering). I recently put in new spark plugs and wires, fuel filter, radiator and...

    What's a good temp. range for water gauge?

    I saw a how to thread and the op used a 100-300 temp gauge but the highest I've seen (doing minimal research) is 100-280. Is 280 enough? At what temp should the X be running normally?

    no check engine or fuel pump when key turned

    I am having the same problem, no engine light or fuel pump. It started as a "no start with a click click sound" problem but after changing the battery cables (and making sure the connections are clean) and a new solenoid it is now a "won't turn over and no engine light or fuel pump" problem I...

    New radiator brings new issue

    thanks for the reply. I will have it pressure tested and recheck for air in the system. there is no leak any more, it stopped after I stopped topping it off with coolant. In my first post I wrong about where the leak seemed to come from. the leak looked like it was coming from the...

    New radiator brings new issue

    Hey guys bare with me on this description. I installed a new radiator and radiator cap and did not replace anything else. I know its a good idea to change the hoses and everything but I dont have the funds now. The reason for the new radiator is because Im trying to stop the temp gauge...

    Rain season brings a leaky roof

    Thanks Anime I will try to get something to fill a couple holes I found in those ridges and top of the windshield hopefully that fixes my problem. I got into it the other day and my driver sun visor was literally dripping wet after a big storm.

    Rain season brings a leaky roof

    I noticed the area of the roof liner under the driver side sun visor ranges from wet to quite moist. I did a search and most posts problems are a sunroof, luggage rack or badly installed new windshield, I have none of these. Anyone have this problem or ideas about my the cause? The roof it...

    Temp gauge spikes

    I thought I did. Perhaps I didn't let it get to operating temp. I did notice that my recovery container was very low, almost empty low but the radiator seemed full. What could that mean?

    Temp gauge spikes

    Well long story short I was having temp problems. I blew out a clog in the radiator, found out there was no thermostat in the housing so I replaced it and added fresh fluids. I went on a 15-20 min drive today. 4 times the gauge quickly jumped from the NO to far M then went back down to...

    Thermostat RTV gasket ????

    What are some signs of those? So far as far as I can tell no signs of either. No white smoke coming out of the exhaust. I haven't checked if I'm losing fluid, haven't driven enough yet. I do get a putter or gargle from the exhaust, not sure if that is the normal sound.

    Thermostat RTV gasket ????

    I removed the thermostat housing and and was shocked to find NO THERMOSTAT. However there was the rubber ring????:wtf: Who ever was in here last put the rubber ring in but not the thermostat???? I did get what looked like black rtv gasket coming out of my radiator as I unclogged it. Any...

    Thermostat RTV gasket ????

    So I bought a new thermostat to go with a new radiator but it did not come with the gasket. Both auto parts shops say it's sold separate. My question is can I use an rtv gasket maker I have? Looks like who ever was in there last did use some thing similar.

    Cig lighter as power supply ???

    I used my cig lighter to charge my cell phone with the car charger. It works fine but when I turn off the truck it continues to charge my phone. So the lighter is getting power constantly is this a bad sign? How do I fix this?

    Nothing coming out of radiator drain plug

    So having no other vehicles(my motorcycle is out of commission till I get new parts),no income since I lost my job and having lunch with a female I decided to try to unclog it once more. This time I was successful. I was not ready for what came out. Aside from the normal dirt and debris I got...

    Nothing coming out of radiator drain plug

    I pulled it out and determined replacing the radiator is the way to go. I'm considering getting one from a friends family junk yard/pick and pull if they are pretty sure it will work. My question is what years will work in my '91 2 door 2 wheel manual?

    Nothing coming out of radiator drain plug

    Nothing coming out of radiator drain plug

    So I drained the system and sprayed water in ever hole the lower hole and the drain plug mostly and it did nothing. I looked down the filler pip and saw nothing special. Would it help if I pulled the whole radiator and tried again? I will add a prestone flush kit but I'm not sure which heater...

    Nothing coming out of radiator drain plug

    Ok I pulled the drain plug out and still no flow. I tried a screwdriver and a nail punch. Im going to try the super flush sticky and hopefully purge any dirt and clogs. I bought a new thermostat is it supposed to come with a new gasket or is that sold separate?

    Nothing coming out of radiator drain plug

    I went out to install a new thermostat when I opened the drain plug nothing came out. I did it with the cap off and on. Is it safe to assume the radiator is clogged and this is whats caused my erratic temp gauge and I should replace the radiator?
