    Pontiac Grand Prix Wont Stay Started

    I Recently Bought A 1979 Pontiac Grand Prix. Everything Has Been Great Until Today
    I Have a Huge Holly Carburetor That Sticks out above the Hood. I Also have the Leather Piece That Covers It For like When you Wash your car or whatever. I Remember the previous Owner specifically telling me not to get Water in the Carb.

    Today I took it to the car wash and forgot about covering the carb. Once i started and left it never ran good since. It starts up right but it wont stay on unless im flooring the gas. it will even die when im switching shifts unless im flooring it. i drove it for about 10mins to keep her running to see if it just needed to be driven. anytime i came to a complete srop it cut off. i got home then i parked it and it stayed running but barely. it sounded like my egine is coughing up and lung and its about to die any second.

    i dont know what i've done. only thing i can think of is i accidentally got water in the holley carb and its messed something up. what you guys think i should do?

    my mechanic suggest to just let it sit overnight & half the day 2morrow to make sure its fully hot and dry. then give it a shot.

    I got water into a carb of an old CJ7. I had to be pulled and they engine had to be floored while being pulled. Keep in mind the engine wasn't really running. Probably not the best idea, but it worked. I guess all the water had to get cycled through. So I'd wait for it to dry, then give it a shot tomorrow.

    Sounds like you upgraded to water injection.
    Leave it running for a while, you probably got water in the intake/cylinders. The heat will dry it up.

    Only serious thing i can think of is get a compression/leakdown test to see if any seals popped.
    Piston ringlands, piston rings etc.

    Ok, first of all, Ditch that gay *** bird catcher.
    something that small looks retarded on a car like that.
    2nd. get some nice 15" chrome 5 spoke rims. those rims look retarded.
    3rd, put some meatier tires on there.

    Are you ******* stupid? read 4 posts up.
    Until then, go drive your ni gger mobile into a brick wall.
    it looks like a piece of **** and ruined a perfectly good oldschool car.

    Sounds like you upgraded to water injection.
