    NickD: Always interesting to read your professional detailed info that most of us know nothing about. I missed those when you were absent for awhile.

    No start, codes for no o2 activity and random misfires all cyl.

    WOW, that is the most weird convoluted story I have heard for a while. Congats on the diagnosis and repair.

    I do not know, but most cabs are typically set something like this: Turn the adjustment mixture screw in until it touches the seat and then back it out about 1 to 1 and 1/2 turns.

    Shutting off during Hot weather

    I put 1/4 " spacers (washers on the hold down screws) between the ICM and the steel hot plate engine bracket on my GM cars. Never had a problem since and it is permanent and no cost.

    Turn on the ignition,all lights come on except the starter does not engage.

    I agree with Mobile Dan. I have that wire on all my cars. It can get you started and home and greatly assist in diagnostics.

    Shutting off during Hot weather

    Heat can cause all kinds of electronic devices to malfunction. You have the old OBD-1 system on that car. Is the check engine light on? Do you have any codes?

    84 Monte Carlo stalled and would not restart.

    You now have fuel "TO" the carb. But possibly the fuel is not getting to the engine or too much fuel is getting there. You had fouled plugs so it may be that the seat of the needle and seat is old and brittle and allowing extra fuel into the bowl that is flooding out at idle. Or the long...

    Random air conditioning blows hot air

    The fact that you just overhauled an automatic trans makes me confident that you will be able to do this A/C job well also. Good luck to you.

    Have you checked the fuel supply? Any fuel in the carb? Does accelerator pump squirt fuel when pumping accelerator? If not, check the little inline fuel filter right in front of the carb. (If it has one??)

    my Nissan frontier with the 2.4 motor is showing a code of P1402, just wondering what that might be?

    Sounds like the EGR may not be closing at idle due to dirty EGR valve or defective EGR or improper signal from the ECM to the EGR. Most can be cleaned if that is all it is. I would try that first. If defective, obviously it will need to be replaced.

    '02 Impala 3.4L, 211.6k : Annoying Window Motor Assembly Problem

    Again, I like your diagnosis. I would suggest "googling" and "youtubing" and you may get a clue. And , you could use a cut off tool and remove unnecessary parts of the inner door panel to make for easier access . This shouldn't be necessary but it has been done. Be careful.

    You are on the right track (no pun intended). They can be lubed and possibly aligned. I would suggest you check that out very carefully. I also agree 100% with Tommy's info.
