Electrical / Lighting Systems Chugging When driving Always
Q: While driving, it is like running out of gas. My husband has changed the fuel filter, spark plugs, and the fuel filter lines, sprayed carboratetor cleaner. And it seemed too help for a while, So now I am back at it but not as bad..
A: If he can check the fuel delivery per minute rate. Also leave the gas cap "loose" for a drive and see if this improves. Ed
Q: My car, when I turn it off, chugs and makes noise and it does it for about 20-30 secs after the car turns off, then stops. It doesn't do it all the time. I can't figure out what it is. My friend had the same car and year, and said she had the same problem. Should I use a different grade of gas? Or is it a problem with a part?
A: The idle may be set to high. Try the gas thing and also turn the key off with the car in drive. Then shift the now off car into park. Ed

Q: Okay, this may sound weird, but I really would like to know an answer. I bought a Horizon HB 87' about five years ago. I bought it from a car dealer, not the original owner, so the dealer had no idea why it had the manual fan. It has a manual fan in the engine. I have to turn a switch (next to the steering wheel) on when I start the car to get the fan to turn on. First, why would someone do that, why change the fan to manual? Nothing else has been changed in the engine or car. Also, does this hurt the car or engine? Any effects?
A: Someone had no idea how to fix the real problem so they wired around it to a manual switch. Ed
