Got an estimate for tmiing chain, $450! That sounds a bit outrageous to me!. Anyhow, as far as driving style I'm more in the 80+mph range on the freeway when traffic allows, I already screech around turns for the hell of it lol. Dunno how to check most of the other stuff. Mileage is the same no matt...

I drive like a Buick out of hell! 8-) :mtt: Until I have to stop for traffic.

Very stop and go type driving, but still should be cloesr to 20mpg.

I'll check it after I get the chain and filter done.

Thanks.

alright, can you believe my mileage weighs in at a whopping 14.89 mpg!!

This seems very off. Should I have a compression test done? Most of the ignition stuff is new, plugs and wires, battery, air filter... It starts up powerfully.

Hmmm and hmmmm.

I drive in the city a lot more, a lot more stop and go so my mileage won't be as good to start off with. When I filled up last, it took 15.1 gallons and was at the quarter tank mark. I reset the trip odometer as soon as I filled up, now reads about 78 miles and the meter is half-way between 3/4 and ...

Mileage and idling

Whats the average mileage for one of our cars? Whats the capacity of the tank? I never let mine get under a quarter tank cause I just don't trust the meter. When its full it hits the temp. markings. Anyhow I'm thinking I'm getting crappy mileage, I judge a quater tank has gone and I only got about 7...

Fuel Filter

Whats up guys, I know this a dumb question but where and how do I change the fuel filter? I've done the rest of the tune-up except that. Performance has improved greatly but the filter hasn't been changed in years so I think I should do it. I'm going to have the timing chain done by a mechanic cause...

T's right, thats the same thing that happened to my tranny but ... not that bad! The shop said it was for the same reason too. Hey I went to college in Montana and all I could find to do for fun for a couple of months was see how much I could spin on the dirt roads. Cost me $2500 for the new one.

Should I sell my T and would anyone want it?

Whats up guys. First let me thank T for getting my login working. So my dilema: Do I sell the T? I'll have my '67 Camaro done in a couple of months. I don't have the time or the money to put into the T to bring her back to her former glory. Here are the specs. STOCK '89 Maroon. Velour interior. No r...
