valve tap

1 Answer


that old of a vehicle...yah...its possible it could go out. its also possible its stuck wide open. have u had an ase certified mechanic tell u its the valve??? if not...theres several other things it could be. 1. bad spark plug. ur car cant idle right on 3 cylinders. 2. needs a fuel injection cleaning. dont do the fuel in the tank. thats crap. what ur doin essenially is adding a small bottle of cleaner to a 11 gal tank. worthless. u need to disco the hose that goes straight to the fuel injection manifold located near the back drivers side firewall. U NEED 2 PEOPLE FOR THIS. one to keep the car idling so it wont stall & one to inject the cleaner straight into the hose. 3. ur fuel filter is shot to hell. the fueling system is alooooooooot more likely to be bad or need a tuneup rather than a valve goin bad. 4. u could have a bad spark plug wire. *to sum it up...do a thorough fuel injection cleaning. get a new fuel filter. replace the spark plugs & spark plug wires.* ~idling problems are usually do to limit of spark or fuel.~
