most vacuum leaks are in hoses that are disconnected or have holes in them you can also take a bottle of water and spray it along the side of the intake and base of the carborater if the motor bogs or you here it suck the water in you have found you leak but it can be a leak under the intake and that is a bigger problem to find buy a can of starting fluid and spray it near the gasket and vacuum hoses and if the engine increases its rpm that is where the leak is
The year, make, model and engine info would help but a serious vacuum leak could do that.
1) normal operation when cold or 2) vacuum leak cause by shrunken gasket
A bad IAC (idle air control)or vacuum leak. Check for bad vacuum hoses first, the IAC is around $50
vacuum leak or fuel pump Randy
usually there is a fuel leak internally however it can also be an air leak
The year, make and model info would be helpful but a large vacuum leak could do that.
The racing up and down at idle is call enging loping, usually caused by a vacuum leak. It could also be caused by a sticking choke at the carb. Whatever the case may be, you will need to start by hooking up a smoke machine to find the source of the leak. Also check your coolant level. my 1991 Toyota 4x4 22re had the same race up and down idle. it was a low coolant level.
Actually, there might be some kind of vacuum leak or bad vacuum connection somewhere. When you step on the brake, the power brake booster under the hood draws vacuum from the engine ... so it could be related to that. Check all your vacuum hoses and connectors for leaks, cracks or loose fittings. A quick and dirty fix for hoses with small cracks is to wrap some electrical tape around the cracked area. Such fixes are NOT RECOMMENDED BY EXPERTS, of course, but if they work for a day or two, they're likely to work for years.
That is normally caused by an air leak in the induction system.
vacuum leak. my 95 Monte Carlo did it. once in a while it would race to 2500 rpm then settle down like normal. not easy to find , but a cheap fix.
A five letter word for a race car engine is a motor.
90% of the time it is a vacum leak check all ur hoses goin to the intake also check the idle air control valve on the back of the intake
an engine a set of wheels and a steering rack!
usually a race car engine has more horse power and more ft./lbs. of torque than your standard v8,v6,4cylinder car/truck engine
A Spoon engine is a high rpm race engine, and it is called a spoon engine because its made by Spoon.
Amazon.com is a good place to find The Amazing RaceDVDs.

Hey Dave===It is either the cable to the carb that is stickeng or if it is a 4 bbl, the secondary butterflies are hanging open. Good luckJoe hey, you may want to also check vacuum lines. i have a 89 formula that acted the same way. sometime it would be fine, other times it would idle close to 3000 and if i put it in gear it would try real hard to stall. it turned out to be a vacuum leak.
Honestly, this engine does not deserve a race cam. You will not be able to get what you want out of it.
Any type you can think of.
No because the engine is way to powerful. And is to expensive.
It can be anywhere from 8.5 to 1 for a normal car to 13 to 1 or higher for a race engine.
He does, but he will not be able to use it because it is not permitted to use the joker engine in the last race
You will have to be more specific. Race car is too broad a term. There are many different types of race cars using many different engines.
