Question Asked: terrible gas mileage
March 17, 2012, 02:28 PM
i have a 93 corsica 3.1L v6, it says i should be getting around 18 miles city, however, i get about 30 miles to a quarter tank. i know the gas tank is rather small, but theres not much done to the car. the air filter has no cover and the filter is loose, just sorta sits there and its not really tightened to the large intake hose. i havent checked the code for my check engine light, and the previous owner put a new fuel flow regulator on the car. i know its pretty broad and i should get the car looked at but any ideas? my final comment is that the car is burning very rich, you can smell gasoline in the oil, is there a way to manually reset my fuel to air ratio?
Question Asked: my coolant is pouring out of a valve.

its pouring out of a valve located directly left and up of the exhaust manifold, the car has a fan with a manual switch on it, and the coolant only comes out when the fan is running. not sure what it is but through research, it could possibly be a heater core problem, input would be greatly appreciated
