  1. Thanx guys, needed to know those tid bits of info. I have come to the conclusion that the cause of my fault code... Is... Wait for it... something electrical or vacuum is expanding in the heat. As I mentioned when ambient temperature is above 85ish check engine light comes on pretty much all day. Where as when temp is lower, like today, no light. Also if I let the engine idle for more than a couple of minutes the light eliminates as well. Now I just have to figure out the culprit. Thanx again for the effort you guys put in to assisting me! Very much appreciated!!!
  2. Thanx Hemi Dude, don't know what I'd do without you guys!
  3. I did take note of a diagram somebody posted recently that should help.
  4. Can I put a gauge on the system and check for leaks without tracing them all?
  5. Thanx Reaper, I will do that, vaccum issue is scary because I've read issue after issue concerning the layout of the hoses. If all is correct now I'll be alright, Just make sure I keep track of what goes where. Thanx again. I'll let you guys know what I find.
  6. Through a photo in there for those who appreciate mechanical art work.
  7. Hey Hemi Dude, as you instructed, I ran the codes. Only one showed up, #37. Barometric read selenoid circuit. Being serious about careing for the car, I purchased the service manual. It indicated the code, but briefly scanning the following pages, it didn't indicate what to do about it. I'm sure the information in there somewhere. I would want your opinion anyway.
  8. First thing in the morning. Cars at my off site garage, but I'll let you know the results asap. And thanks again.
  9. Check engine light, sometimes on, sometimes not. Been running shell V-Tec fuel since purchased, seems to have helped. Also seems to be more active the higher the ambient temperature. 90 degrees or higher it'll come right on. Below it may not come on at all. The question is what do I need to test the engine computer, and where do I get it?
  10. Typically I go every August for a billiards convention. Doesn't seem as though it's going to happen this year. When we do go, I'll make a point of meeting up. Might happen in November.
  11. Oh and your TC looks great.
  12. Go to Vegas every year, see many older cars clean as can be. If I had the time and the resources I would go to Arizona to car hunt. Still a couple of years away from retirement. Hoping I can keep this one trouble free till I have the time to do whatever work it needs now, and will undoubtedly need by than. Everything functions properly except the abs system. Stops true and strong as is, so don't plan on dealing with that any time soon. I'm aware all the parts are available. Would like to keep original, as opposed to changing to Lebaron system.
  13. I do love the car, the uniqueness especially. Looked a long time for one. Owned to Labarons previously , best snow cars I've owned. Don't freak this one won't see weather. Just a response to another post. Other than being good in snow, I've always hated front wheel drive. Never room to work. Serious rot was there dimise. Just kidding about getting rid of it.
  14. I agree with you as well as Hemi. In respect that the trick is maintainance. But I have noticed that just about any repair under the hood requires a lot of disassembly. Over the years I've lost faith in mechanics. I could write a book on the disasters. While I am naturally mechanical, I have not worked on cars since the advent of the computer. I know you guys would walk me through just about anything, which is great to know. And tools I have more than I know what to do with, less auto specialty equipment. Anyway thanx for the imput. Looking forward to working with you guys. Just not soon I hope.
