    Happy Easter! Anyone know where i can get a new door latch assembly?
  2. THanx man,just wondering,hate those long cold startups
  3. Has anyone swapped out the manifold and carb to a fuel injected system? Are there engines that could match up and use there system?:confused:

    hcv motor

    No,thats the heater control valve itself.Those are plentiful,This item physically opens and shuts it.It has a little electric motor in it and some worm gears

    hcv motor

    No,that looks like it wood open a vent or something.This one opens and closes the heater control valve under the hood.It sits onthe intake manifold on the passenger side near the firewall

    hcv motor

    Does anyone know where i can locate that little electric motor that sits on top of the heater control valve on the 1985's with the electric climate control? Have been searching for years!
  7. thanks guys,i'll swap em and see what happens
  8. I had replaced the mc and threw away the old lines to the prop valve. I intended to replace them right away but that turned into a couple of months,then i didnt remember which one went where. Now when i put a little extra pressure on the pedal the rears skid.
  9. does it matter if the lines from the master cylinder to the prop. valve get crossed? It has 4 wheel discs. the reservoirs in the mc are same size:confused:
  10. Has anyone done away with the air suspension system on a 1985 and replaced it with regular shocks?Can't deal with the air problems anymore!
  11. Does anyone know why the lines between the MC and prop valve run all the way down the wheel well and back on the 85 rivs?

    brake line

    I do not have abs, it just seems that the front brakes are not doing enough and most of the stopping is coming from the rear.I thought I might not be getting enough pressure to the front because of maybe the wrong size line.I had the system bled over and over.
  13. Hello,does anyone know what size brake line goes between the master cylinder and prop valve on a '85 with 4 wheel disc?Too many hands have been on it and I think its too small.Thanks!
  14. No, it makes no difference about how much fuel is in it.I checked for any kind of leakage and everything looks fine.
  15. I don't know what e85 fuel is but I'm not using it ,its got the olds 5.0.I will check the egr and pvc and its funny that the fuel pump was mentioned because i had a problem years ago,when i would put the car in gear it would stall out.Every moron I took it to would dive right into the carb and not find the problem untill oneday I noticed a leak from the pump and when I replaced it the problem was solved.Can it be that the fuel pump can fail intermittently?There is no sign of a leak from the pump.
  16. I unplugged the wire harness to the tranny for the torque converter about 15 years ago so I think that its got to be something with the carb or emission stuff.The carb was replaced about 10 years ago. I have no clue on how to adjust the carb and trying to find someone that does these days is very hard.
  17. There isn't really any rough idling before the stall,it just idles down to a stall like its running out of gas.Then it starts immediately but doesnt hold the idle untill i get going again,I have to give a liitle on the throttle before putting into gear and then its fine for a while untill it happens again.Sorry about the wait I was away.
  18. I can't seem to figure out why? THe car starts fine,it runs fine ,it idles fine and every now and then when i am stopped at a light it stalls out and then it starts right up .It has the 5.0 v-8 with the 4 barrel and I checked all the hoses for leaks and I checked the fuel filter.Any ideas?
  19. I also have an 85 with the same problems,when its full I get the dashes and when it gets down to 3 gallons I'm out of gas.I've just learned to live with it.I've also been looking for that heater control valve actuator for years,can you hook me up with the guy where you got yours?
  20. I would assume that it would be the same in the toronado and the eldo of the same year that have 4 wheel disc, but I am not positive
  21. I have been searching for an original used prop valve for a '85 RIV with 4 wheel discs.I think I have called every salvage yard in the country with no success.Does anyone know where I can locate one ? I'm desperate!
