    weight

    I wanna know how much an 86 hatch weights, I've had to push my car through so many intersections I've lost count. I weigh like 130 pounds soaking wet, so it takes a while for me to push my car thru the intersections. I dont know why my car keeps stalling, (probably bad fuel filters, cause the carb was just cleaned last night, and the rest of the stuff looks good, might be my coil?)

    I'm not sure on the hatch.But I know search will tell you.I think it's in the fags to
    Stop bench racing and pick up a wrench

    I know my spelling sucks and I suck with computers deal with it.

    how did you clean out your carb? what did you use?
    I don't think it's the coil unless you are having trouble driving at any rpm. 1,000 - 6,800

    it may be a electrical though... ground... bad alt... bad battery or connections...

    Elijah... you mean FAQ

    i remember having to do that, the car sounds like it wants to die and a bunch of smoke pours out of the exhaust.. fun times fun times. So glad i have a different car. Good luck with your issue.

    hmm... well after you replace the fuel filters you might want to download the shop manual and whipe the inside of the float bowl clean.
