Hey DKM==You need to tell what kind of car you have as there are so many different types of linkage. GoodluckJoe

Try having the fuel pump checked. On a '93 Buick Century I used to have, the fuel pump failed, and the gas pedal immediately went to the floor.

If you have a drain concreted into the floor that goes to your plumbling in the basement you want to install a pedastal sink can the drain be run out the bottom of the sink or does it have to be in wa?

That would depend on where the floor drain was in relation to the sink. If it is the drain for an existing sink it may be too far out from the wall. There is no way to know without measuring. The pedestal may have a hole in the bottom of it that may be big enough for the drain or not. Depends on the manufacturer. If you can get it to line up somehow, there is a trap that drains out the floor instead of the wall.
