weld collectors- have headers re-coated.
check plugs

Ill be adjusting electric fans on the Malibu I installed last spring. Ive tried to get the fans to turn on at the right temperature, But all they will do is turn on or off. Ill try the sensor in a different spot. I think I solved the fuel starvation problem I have been having with the El Camino.
