Re: Any mechanics out there?
The air filter is bad, I know for a fact. Couldn't see through it at all. I just left it out (someone was telling me it works better w/o one than a bad one). From what I've been told the air filter isn't that much of a problem due to the fact that I never drive on anything but the highway.
The problem with the distributor is that I think my bolt came off. It barely stays on... I had someone put silicon on the edges so it would stick, so honestly I'm not sure I can take it off without not being able to put it back on or not. My uncle did check out the distributor and he said it didn't look too good, but I'm not sure if it was corroded or what. I'll try to see if I can't work on it a little with sand paper though.
Today on the way to school, I noticed that I could pump the gas when it bogs down, and in a few seconds it will kick back into normal. Seems like pumping the gas helps it fire or find its power again.
Does this still sound like a distributor cap problem? It seems like it makes sense to me, and since you mentioned it, along with the fact that my uncle said that it might not be working right, it could be reasonable to think that could be the problem.
