I just picked up an 85 GLH-T.

It starts just fine, however it runs sooo rich, it spits out black smoke and stumbles. When you rev it it stumbles more and just dies. I havent pulled the plugs yet but the previous owner said they are new, and just black from running so rich.

Anyways, the car is 100% stock and has 80k on it.

Anyone have any idea? Im told possible coolant sensor. :bash:

Start with basics. Codes? Vacuum hoses all OK?

+1 to the vacuum lines. Used to blow the map line off all the time road racing and it'd do the same thing. Are the plugs black?

Figured it out...

It had a 1 bar map sensor installed.... Go figure!!

Well beating the hell out of the car didnt last, lol. Ive popped off the shifter rods twice now. :(

Damn turbo dodges.... Ive stayed away for so long for a reason! lol.

So current issues. Shifter rods suck ass ? (whats the fix/upgrade?)
It seems to "load" up with fuel and sputter after about 3 mins of driving. Shut it off, restart immediatly and its fine for another 3-5 mins.

Anyways, fun car, I cant wait (and hope) to get it running decent!!

Heim joints work,or you could put a cable-shift tranny in it. Damn Turbo Dodges? Why? :confused: Does it have any codes?
No codes.

Damn turbo dodges because it always seems to be something. :bash:LOL
A few of my buddies have had turbo spirits, lebarons, minivans and omnis and they are ALWAYS doing something to it, lol.

Ah well, cant expect a stock 23 year old car to be all fun no work now can I?

I think I am going to look into just making the rods work, I dont want to put a whole lot of money or time into this car. I have an NYG to work on. hehe.

Nope, its all blue/paint peel, HAHA.


I have ALOT of people who want to buy this thing already, and I havent even owned it for 36 hrs yet!!

Anyone have opinions on "what its worth"
I keep asking myself if I "overpaid."
