How old is the battery? If it's the original one, it's probably just in need of replacement. 5-7 years is a typical battery lifetime. At the end of life, they will sometimes appear to charge, but die rapidly if not used for a few days.

This is a case of what is your time worth and how long can you be without a car. I would try self extraction first. Short of breaking the extracter off in the remaining plug you can't make it worse. I have a couple of suggestions if you are doing it yourself. When I have a situation like this I soak a rag in PB blaster and wrap it around the fitting. The rag ...

Points would be the first thing I would check. It sounds like the ignition is breaking down i.e. not enough spark getting to the plugs. The next thing to check is the wires. If you have access to an ignition scope or a Kv meter it can make the diagnosis easier. Pulling the plugs and inspecting them can give you more clues see my answer here for help on ...

Here is a picture from Mustang Monthly. The description in the article that is from says: In '65, Mustangs had an induction-style ammeter with no connections, only an induction loop (also called a magnetic loop) on the back of the ammeter that picks up current flow (magnetic field) through the main power lead.

Either stuck down in the same way as the carpet (although I personally wouldn't bother with carpet at this stage, get the important bits done first and worry about that later...), or screwed to the bulkhead either side of the ECU. I ...

Code: P1233 - Fuel System Disabled or Offline Description: The PCM monitors the fuel pump monitor (FPM) circuit from the fuel pump driver module (FPDM). With ...

Yes, cold, humid air will make a difference. You can run richer mixture on a cold morning than on a hot afternoon, for example. On a small two-stroke you'll swap jets, while a modern (generous usage here) car adjust the mixture itself according to sensor data.

The reason is most likely because you have a leak in the system - this could be in various different places, for example: In the radiator In one of the hoses carrying water to and from the radiator In a gasket Cost for repair will be dependent on what component the leak is in and where that component is. Another possibility is that the radiator has ...

Well, it's not going to be easy. You can try it yourself, say by drilling a hole and trying to extract it with special drill bits--because that's all a specialist is going to do. However, you're going to get debris in the combustion chamber, so having a shop do this might be prudent. Some shops will remove the head which will allow the stuck plug to be ...
