what does spraying carb cleaner all over the engine do? hwo does just spraying that stuff allow you to find leaks?
I sprayed carb cleaner all over the engine bay and on the vacuum lines, idle didnt change. so i dont know why the car is running so rich, only thing i can think of are the O2 sensors malfunctioning, maybe the wiring under there came loose. i dont know what else it could be really.
The wires were cut and extended from the harness over to the intake tube, I redid the connection as they were just crimped when I got the car. I solder all connections on a car for piece of mind, I was told you can pull some slack out of the harness but I wouldn't recommend that at all. On a side note I just heard from my landlord, he's putting the house up for sale and I have till august to find somewhere else to live. Looks like I may put the stang up for sale here soon, new baby, new house, new bills ooooh chit.
