Try pinching the line shut starting from where they all connect and work your way out. When you pinch the line that has the leak somewhere down the line, the idle on the car should drop. THen work your way down that line you should eventually find the source if a vacuum leak is what is causing the problem in the first place.
It depends on the State where you plan to take a Smog Exam. A Calif. Smog Check License Exam is normally given with 3 variations in the test booklet. The material to be learned will be very intense with about 300 questions. You will be told in advance about the number of test questions, and the number of possible answers to each question, (Usually four or five). You will be told what minimum score you will need to pass the exam. You will be monitored during the test by an instructor or supervisor. You will most likely be required to take a "hands on" practical test in a laboratory sometime close to the semester end.
Have you had the head gasket re-tightened since the gasket was replaced some time back. That may be the problem it should be tightened after the car has done 1 or 2 thousand miles. But otherwise the distributor may not have been tightened enough working loose & now requires advancing again & re-tighten. I would have it checked out if you can't do it yourself.
Mechanics diagnose and repair numerous problems that can occur with a vehicle. Problems that result from wear and tear (brakes, filters, belts) or from mechanical/electrical failure. An owner of a car explains a problem he or she experiences with the car (funny noises, runs poorly or something stops working) and the mechanic uses diagnostic tools, procedure and experience to pinpoint the source of the problem.
Hi, I have been a mechanic tech, and a auto body repairman, and a cirtified welder, also was a auto mech. instructor in High School . I would suggest to go for the Mechanic part first which has more to learn on. Take your time and learn all the different areas.Ask a lot of questions, read lots of books understand what its all about and would also suggest you get a job as a mechanic helper while going to school. This will help you understand more of what is involved in runing a shop. One does not have to be a mechanic or a body tech. to run or oun a shop.Although it is good to know all about it. Go For It. I did since 1963 till 2012 and enjoyed it. Good Luck
I had a 1993 Camry and actually have had lots of different camrys. If there is white smoke coming out the back (smells like engine coolant?!), then you have a leaking Head gasket. Stop driving the car, as coolant is seeping into oil case, or combustion chamber. It's gonna cost alot to get fixed cus lots of labor time involved, but part is cheap. And while your at it, replace the timing, and ignition belts
