As in one of my questions in the past. My truck acts like it wants to stall when it is hot out side. I asked a mecanic and now I was told that it might chug because of a vapor lock.Can their be any thing to do about that? It is a 1991 Ford Ford truck with a 4.9 liter engine.

My mechanic fixed a problem with mold in the A/C, the radio didn't work for a day, and now the charcoal canister needs replacing. Do you think the flushing of the A/C was related to the failure of the canister?

Heat up issue cont...New w-pump, therostat, flushed engine, system bleeding done. At operating temp. car rad has pressure. Re-flushed engine...while doing so discontect return rad hose...ran water through sytem...pumps out re-turn hose...hot. When I hook all hose up, bleed system and
run...found top feeder rad hose get normally hot...However, the return hose remains cool?? Odd cuz while checking return hose out put while disconnected the coolant flows through motor. System hoses hook up...both get hard can't squeez them. Stop engine with hoses hook up...squeez them both...pressure from each does push coolant up and out the open rad cap??? Does any one have any thoughts on this problem? Car from motor cold to about 2 miles out hits RED
zone...Temp of motor at that point is valid...HOT!!!!

There is no trace of any oil on garage floor. What do you think the problem is and is it usual to have only 76% oil life index?
