Okay.......Let me take a deep breathe cuz i feel like woke up from a dream, it was so nice i dreamed that i had a white cressida outside my apartment, i then realized my dream was a reality. Well anyways just got the car of my dreams, want to get the car up to daily driver condition, the car revs only to low to mid 3000 rpms the car doesnt go past second gear. Does anyone have ideas on what i could to fix my car. The transmission leaks oil by the oil pan for the transmission. And as for the rev problem does the carb have a sensor that keeps the motor from running rich or lean, preventing a engine blow? Need help bad! First carb car i've ever owned. Thanks.

If it's a vacuum secondary carb, the second barrel is probably not opening? Meaning either a carb rebuild is in your future, or you might get lucky and it's just a vacuum leak.

Dumb question, you're sure it's actually in Drive right? These older shifters get a little sloppy and what you think is Drive may actually be 2nd.

Oh no. Nothing like that. :P

Well the carb is only one carb its top mounted into the intake manifold, how would i look for a leak in the vacuum line? As for the transmission the car was in drive, i drove the car a block, it went into reverse then i put it into drive it got first gear then it did a hard shit into the next gear, it only went 30 mph then the car did not go into any other gears the engine reved to the 3000 rpm and did not go faster, its and auto trans mission might i add, it leaks, do you think it needs more fluid.

Well, if it leaks it definitely is low on fluid. :wink:

Do you know the procedure for checking the fluid level?
