COOLING SYSTEM SERVICE........$65
VALVE COVER GASKET........$120
CLEAN & ADJUST BRAKES.........$15
BRAKE FLUID FLUSH/ADD........$49
ALIGNMENT........$39
MUFFLER......$475

k now da reason i ask all dis is 2 reasons....first of all i had gotten new spark plugs,ignition wires,fuel filter and pcv valve and a air filter....but after doing da spark plugs and wires i drove it and it was drivin fine ...i press da gas more and da gas pedel falls....so now its lik im pressin da gas all da time...i press brake and pull over and stop da car....turn it on again and its like im pressin da gas so i try 2 get it home and do...but da whole time its firing and pop pop and den starts smokin from da heads....so i call da tow truck 2 take it 2 da shop...and da dis. cap is movable...so he said dats prob y its firing wrong and da gas pedel thing was maybe wen i was puttin da new wires and spark plugs in i leaned on sumting on da carb hes checkin into it...i wont get it bak till monday morn...

k now....i dont kno if i should just say fuck it make it drivable(which it is now) and save up and buy a olds 350 and throw it in dur...or just fix da 4100 untill it brakes later on....da miles reads 68k..... i know people gonna say get a chevy 350 but i aint n 2 tryn 2 custom do shit hea...if anything ill just rebuild da tranny and put da olds into it...or leave da 4100 in...

so wit da list of stuff i gotta do its like $600 without da muffler(cuz i got sumone 2 do it for alot cheaper)....so either do all dat shit or buy a olds 350 for wha eva price and throw dat one in....

Calvin, you can do all that stuff yourself, except for the alignment and the muffler. Even if you ain't a mechanic, that shit is simple.

Maybe your choke or your idle is messed up causing it to rev.

yeah man, we can walk you through most of that shit here... if you do most of it yourself you'll be looking at maybe a day of work, and you'll save yourself a HELL of a lot of money

Here's the part that cracks me up.

Rotor-$5
wires-$25-40


Those are the approx. prices from a parts store. I find the $90 rotor halirious.

I know, you can usually find a tune-up kit that has all that plus spark plugs and a fuel filter for cheap.
