Re: Dash Lights after oil change!?

Solved! 8-) I was poking around under the hood this evening and noticed the red wire to the choke was looking kind of wonky.

1981 Corolla wagon, external regulator. I had the alternator rebuilt locally about 6 mos ago for 3 bad diodes so I certainly hope it's good. There has only been one time I have ever seen these 3 lights on together and that's when I lost my alternator belt cruising down the freeway. They weren't on w...

Weber Jetting for economy

It gets between 14-16mpg no matter what I do. I have changed plugs & wires, rebuilt the carb, checked EGR operation, checked the...
