Question type: General

what would be the symptoms of a vapour lock on 1980 Dodge Chrysler V8 when it is erratic in starting

Vapor lock is when the gasoline in the fuel lines gets hot enough to boil away before it reaches the engine. This condition is unheard of in vehicles made since the early '60s. Unless, of course, the fuel lines have been rerouted by someone and are now too close to the hot exhaust manifold. HTH. -Jim
