  1. Now that we've had the first decent day without any rain or cold and I've finally gotten the brakes done over the winter, I'm wanting to take her around the block. The 'ol girl starts right up without any problem. However she'll idle for a few seconds and then die. When I manage to shift her into Low gear to drive her, she seems to have no power. When I give her gas, there's some pops and hesitations. There seems to be no difference in her sluggishness when I put the pedal closer to the floor. I'm terrified that I'm doing damage to her. I realize this could be a lot of things, but I'd appreciate any advice on where to begin my troubleshooting. Professionally rebuilt engine, rebuilt carburetor, new plugs/wires, new exhaust, Pertronix electronic ignition, new fuel tank and lines. Lamar, wanna come over sometime? I can get some Fat Tire for ya!
  2. What is the optimal warm engine idle speed for a 1948 6 cylinder Chrysler with fluid drive and the hydraulic transmission? I was having trouble with the transmission not wanting to shift until I was going faster than the factory recommendations of 12-14 MPH. I was having to get up to 25-30 MPH in high range (and sometimes trying more than once) before it up-shifted. When I last drove it, it would not up-shift at all. Someone suggested it might be as simple as the idle speed. I can go through the factory service recommendations for up-shifting problems when I get a free day, and it mentions RPMs, but without giving the proper setting. I want to address the idle speed issue before I check the electrical.
  3. Hi everyone, I have an '89 that does not idle smoothly when stopped in gear. For instance, when waiting at a red light, RPM'S will quickly fluctuate from 650 to 600 back up to 650 resulting in a bit of a shudder that lasts about a second. Over time it seems to be getting progressively worse. Conditions: Very smooth idle @ 750 RPM when in Park/Neutral RPM'S drop to 650 when in gear Fuel system has recently been treated (problem existed before treatment) Battery & charging system are good Other than this little hiccup, car runs & performs excellent Dirty IAC? Dirty MAF? Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks in advance, Brent
